Viral infxn/roseola: Roseola is a common pediatric viral illness most commonly cause just fever, at times quite high to 104-105, but no other symptoms. Child can be cranky/tired at high tempt., but once fever is controlled, he/she is ok. Fever mat last for 3-5 days, then tiny, pinkish rash appears and fever resolves. Usually of no consequences. So, tylenol/motrin as needed for fever. If worsen, consult doc. Good luck.
