Hi, normal body temperature is between 96.8F-98.6F. Upto 99F we can consider it as normal. If your temperature is constantly at 100 F, then other causes need to be considered. If this is an evening rise of temperature it could be due to a chronic infection like tuberculosis, with this infection there is usually low grade temperature with an evening rise. So, record your temperatures, on a two hourly basis to detect an evening rise of temperature. This also causes a loss of appetite; as such this is accompanied by weight loss. Hyperthyroidism can also cause a rise in temperature. So, if the temperature elevation persists check with your doctor to rule out these conditions. Regards.
