Fever on agents: This is the classic flu versus bacterial infection or other virus. Colds usually don't give a 103.0, but a flu sure can at it is in full swing here in indiana right now. If safe, getting out to his doctor or an urgent care center may make sense: at least a call to your doctor. Symptoms and signs need to be ascertained (pain, nausea, etc.). He may need some blood work. And, has he had a flu shot?
