Hi,

Sorry for late reply.

As per your description,her body temperature is slight low however not so alarming.

Below 95 F is considered low and hypothermia.

Sweats can be associated with UTI.

Make herself well hydrated.

Also give him Oral rehydration solution.

And give her small meals at intervals.

As she is active throughout the day then you shouldn't worry and complete course.

Hope this helps.
