After fever breaking, why does it come back?

I have been sick for about 4 days with some sort of infection. My temperature wasn't very high, usually staying around the 99.5 - 100.6 range. Early this morning [around 3:00 am], after a hard night of not being able to keep my brain quiet, my fever broke, I got a little sweety, and for most of today, my fever has been normal . . . . . until now. It is 5:30 pm, and I just took my temperature and it showed 99.2. I know that isn't high, but is there a reason for this? I'm usually normal at the upper 97's.

Thanks for your input.

BTW, my normal way of living with a fever is to not actually take anything for it and let the body do what it is designed to do, . . . creating a fever situation to kill the infection.

Update: Now, at 6:30 pm, 99.4

This morning, . . . still 99.5 and more green out of the nose. I understand that viral infections aren't affected by antibiotics. How can I know if this is bacterial?

Wednesday May 5th. First night in probably 7 days that I'll be going to bed with a more normal temperature. Still have some dry coughs that seem to come on in the evenings.

Re: After fever breaking, why does it come back?

fevers often are higher in the late afternoon and evening. sounds as if you had a slight sinus infection. rest and drink a lot of fluids.
