Thank you for all the information,
There can be a viral infection.
However, more than 103 is high temperature.
He will need an examination by doctor with this level of temperature.
Meanwhile, you can give him tylenol.
It can be given 4-6 hourly but please do not exceed 5 doses in 24 hours.
Otherwise, motrin can be given.

Tepid sponging can be done.

Please try to give him fluid to keep good hydration.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
