I'm guessing (I have no medical training whatsoever, so this is just a guess)that 98.6 is your core temperature, meaning that it is the temperature of your innards. However, the human body is not usually in 98.6 degree weather, so it has become accustomed to more common temperatures. Such temperatures, of course, are significantly less than 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. However, like I said, this is just a guess.
