In brief: Call pediatrician

A fever is not necessary a bad thing but can be normal when someone is sick.
I would call the childs pediatrician.You should consider ibuprofen or tylenol and also how does the child look.Acting and looking normally,drinking ok,speak with the pediatrician and they may tell you to come be seen in the office the next day.
