Can normal human have body temperature 98.9 or 99 .1 ? Is it normal?

Can normal human have body temperature 98.9 or 99 .1 ? Is it normal?

Yes: There is no single temperature reading that is “normal” for all patients, although many consider an oral temperature of 98.6° F (37° C) the norm. Age, exercise, hormones, stress, environmental temperature, time of day, body site, and medications can all influence body temperature.

Not to worry: It is normal for the body's temperature to drop overnight. Many of the metabolic functions go into a baseline mode, so less energy is needed and thus less heat produced. Understand also that an oral temperature is influenced by many factors and may not accurately reflect the core temperature. Don't worry too much about a low oral reading if you are feeling ok otherwise. ...Read more
