In brief: Why?

Why treat a low grade fever? It may be helpful, it should not affect you adversely other than being aware of it, and simply recording the levels of fever and the times it occurs may help your doctor if it persists and you need a diagnosis.
If you are really bothered by it you can take Aspirin or tylenol (acetaminophen) every 4-6 hours to suppress it. Less than a minute ago.

In brief: Fever is Our Friend

Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin contain medicine that block the fever signal from the immune system to the brain.
Keep in mind that fevers are not dangerous by themselves for otherwise healthy adults and children. It is a natural part of our defense mechanism and the reports of brain damage from fevers are myths. The idea is in reducing fever is just to be more comfortable. Whatever does that is good.
