Viral infections are common.
If after 3 days it persist then medical advise is required. In the meantime, fluids, rest & antipyretic treatment as required. Some children may develop seizures upon high temperature, then watch closely as far as no strange secretions or other changes.

In brief: Viral?

Fever itself is never an evil "symptom." it is a sign of an infection that if fully vaccinated-may be a virus (vs bact.
) that will improve with"comfort" care and support. Numbers on a thermometer are not as important as associated symptoms/comfort and severity/duration. You may watch and wait for your toddler-offer meds if he tolerates/needs it. Follow up with your pediatrician if things worsen.
