I too tend to run a temperature on the lower side, I can bounce around between 97.0 to 98.0. If my temperature was low when I was diagnosed, no one ever said anything. From what I understand 98.6 is just an average, many people can be lower than that and still be normal. Other thing I will say, early in morn, your body temperature will be lower. It will increase as day goes along. I was told this, regarding my kids when they were young. To send to school or not. If by later in the day, they are running a fever, keep them home the next day.
