A member asked:

1yr old boy. temp 38degreesc. decreased appetite, sleepy but plays. had 12mth shots last wk. worry? wake at night if temp high?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Hard to tell: The temperature of 38c (100.4 f) is not really concerning, but i would pay attention to how he feels. If he seems to be less energetic, not eating well, or having trouble sleeping, he should be checked by the doctor. At his age, it can be difficult to tell if he is coming down with a virus, or ear infection or some other illness.
