See a doctor: Seek medical attention. You may ask the emergency room doctor or pediatrician for a consultation with an eye doctor or and ear, nose throat doctor, depending on your son's condition.

See your doctor: These symptoms could indicate a potentially serious infection in a child this age. Especially if your son is acting sick, lethargic, etc. You should get him to a doctor today.

Doctor visit needed: Aside from the high fever , he has conjuctivitis or pink eye. He needs to be seen to establish the source of the fever even though his illness may be viral.
Dr. Richard Hector

Call your ped MD: He needs a complete exam and most likely antibiotic treatment. That 104.5 fever is worrisome.
