If he has a temperature of 104 f or greater, recommend that at minimum, he talk to his doctor who can let him know if needs to be evaluated by him or an acute care clinic. If he becomes confused, or has a stiff neck with a high fever, he should definitely be seen at the emergency room. 4. A temperature below 100.4 is usually not considered medically significant.
