so, if it is lower than 97F what can be done?
Body temperature fluctuates through the day, it's okay if you have 97F- . As long as you feel okay, you're okay. If you feel cold, then keep warm. That's it. My husband always has temperature lower than 97F-, he's very healthy.

temp is 96.1
Normal human body temperature, also known as normothermia, is a concept that depends upon the place in the body at which the measurement is made, and the time of day and level of activity of the body. Although the value 37.0 C (98.6 F) is the commonly accepted average core body temperature, the value of 36.8±0.7 °C, or 98.2±1.3 °F is an average oral (mouth under the tongue) measurement. Rectal measurements, or measurements taken directly inside the body cavity, are typically slightly higher.
Low body temperature may be related to illness. But it's often related more to the way the temperature is measured than to the health of the person.

Low body temperature may be associated with:
Severe infection
Certain medications or toxins (including alcohol)
Hormonal disease (including underactive thyroid, pituitary or adrenal glands)
Kidney failure
Low blood sugar or malnutrition
Neurologic (brain) disease
Prolonged exposure to a cold environment

Many people with a low measured temperature are healthy.
What is normal body temperature?
A normal adult body temperature, when taken orally, can range from 97.6–99.6°F, though different sources may give slightly different figures.
In adults, the following temperatures suggest that someone has a fever:

at least 100.4°F (38°C) is a fever
above 103.1°F (39.5°C) is a high fever
above 105.8°F (41°C) is a very high fever
What if your forehead temperature  Is below 95 degrees but ear temperature  is above 96 degrees?
Normally the body temperature is different at different body parts. An ear (tympanic) temperature is usually 0.5-1°F (0.3-0.6°C) higher than an oral temperature, whereas the forehead skin temperature is usually 0.5-1°F (0.3-0.6°C) lower than an oral temperature.
