In brief: 104-105

Above 104, you risk seizure, heart arrhythmia, and death.
That's not definite but the higher you go, the more likely it is.

infants and young children seem to tolerate higher fevers better than adults

In brief: Depends

Not my area of expertise, but i would say a temperature higher than 103 f for a protracted period of time would be considered worth a medical consultation.
