In brief: Fever
The technical definition of a fever is 100.
4, otherwise it is merely called an elevated temperature. Many different types of infection, inflammation, even allergies can cause elevations in temperature. A fever greater than 103 or an elevation in temperature for greater than 2 weeks is definitely concerning and should be further evaluated.
