In brief: Depends
Depends on which thermometer you use- temperatures taken under the arm or in the ear tend to be lower than rectal temperatured, a normal rectal temperature is 98.
6 plus or minus 1 degree. ( 97.6-99.6) subtract another degree if taking it under the arm. If your baby's temp is low, be sure he or she is dressed warmly enough.

Vaseline or aquaphor make an excellent lip balm, but you should seek help as to why you are biting your lip.

You don't give us much information to go on, as for example, location.
One possibility is getting it from an infected pet such as a dog or cat.
