    OK and at what temp does it require immediate treatment or a visit to doctor
    Dr. Amen O answered:

    Rectally more than 38 degrees for little children and 39 degrees for older kids up to 3 years. But in your case since he's playing and eating well like you said, there's no need to worry too much. Monitor him for today more.
