What causes hallucinations while suffering from fever?

My grandson is 3 years old. He awoke with a fever of 101. He was hallucinating that there were bugs on him and in his bed. The fever is down but he is still afraid of bugs on the floor. He seems otherwise normal, except for lethargy. Can you advise....thank you.
