Child having fever, feeling hot in the arm. Treatment?

My five year old son has had a fever of 102 the past four days (usually goes down in late morning and afternoon, comes back the following morning). He woke up in the middle of the night saying his upper left arm feels hot and asked for a cool cloth. It is still feeling that way this morning. He is 5 years old, 4 ft and 50 lbs. He has no history of any illness .
