In brief: Viral syndrome

It depends on how ill he is overall.
In general, you want to see if can get better with good symptomatic control using acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain and fever, lots of fluids and rest. But, if he is not eating, is getting dehydrated, and isn't looking good, then go to pediatrician. Err on the side of caution and see the pediatrician if you are uncertain.
