Why might my kindergarten-aged child have a lower body temp during a respiratory virus? 95.2 axillary. Was 99.1 earlier.

Axillary temperature. Axillary temperature is 1.5 to 2 degrees lower than body temperature, so 99.1 is actually 100.6 to 101.1. Body temperature vaires during an infection depending on the body's response to fight the infection.
