Thanks for posting your query.
The body temperature is not static and varies according to time of day under the effect of hormone level fluctuation and the metabolic changes.
The evening temperature is 0.5 degrees more than the morning temperature levels in the same individual without any diseases.
The level you are having may be indicative of just a fluctuation but because you are also having symptoms of feverishness it is highly advisable that the fever should be evaluated by a clinical examination by a local physician.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any questions I will be happy to answer.
Please close the query if you have no other questions.
