Not fever: This is not a fever. This is normal increase in body temperature associated with increase activity. Make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids and not overdressing that could hold in body heat and cause even additional rise in body temperature.

Do baths help reduce fever?

Yes: A tepid bath, or a comfortably warm bath, does two things: it keeps the child from shivering, which will generate internal heat, and it will allow for evaporation, lowering heat. Keep the bath from being too hot, but also from being too cold.

What to do if I have a fever of 101.5, should I go to the doctor asap?

Depends: Is there anything else going on in your body to go with the fever? Do others around you have some illness? Can you tolerate what symptoms you have and is there an underlying history of previous illness that might predispose you to severe illness. If everyone who has a fever of 101.5 runs to the doctor, then doctors and emergency rooms would be totally flooded with such people.
