In brief: What other sx ?
Fever @ a 103 level is common in infants & toddlers with a wide variety of minor and some significant illnesses.
I find ibuprofen can give comfort & take a degree off a temp, but any resolution will be the illness going thru its cycles.If baby is playing some & taking fluids well enough to wet every 6hrs, u may be able to ride this out at home. If quiet, taking poorly etc. get seen
