Not for tonight. Just keep liquids down and keep trying to keep the fever down. Maybe take him to the doc tomorrow to check for infections. Like ear or something. Good luck!

Personally, I wouldn't give him meds for a 101 temp.  His body is trying to fight something, and the elevated temp is the best way to kill it.

Give him fluids and food if he's hungry. 

And lots of cuddles!

It is probably a virus and you are doing what you should be. If his fever goes up give him a lukewarm bath and alternate tylenol and ibuprofen (if he can have it) every four hours if his fever goes up or seems in pain. Just watch for dehydration and give him liquid in any form he will take it. Good luck. So sad when they are sick. I hope he feels better soon.

 Im a RN, and I would not be concerned unless his temp continues to go up and the tylenol doesn't help. Watch him for signs of lethargy, not eating or drinking ANYTHING, crying a lot, excessive vomiting or any funny rashes,bumps, lumps on body or genitals.
