Hi,

If no other associated symptoms, and he is otherwise active, we need not worry at all. This probably suggests a viral fever which will come down in 3- 4 days. Just continue Calpol till then. If fever persists beyond 3-4 days, fresh symptoms appear or if he becomes dull, we can evaluate further

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
