My 10 month old son spiked a fever yesterday of 103.8, me being a first time Dad was freaking out. we gave him motrin and made sure he is drinking pedialite but the fever keeps spiking even now the next day about every 4 hours he spike a temp about 100.8 - 102.3 it goes down with motrin and he is drinking ALOT of fluids he does not act like he is sick he plays normal and acts like the happy baby he is but when i pick him up i can feel the heat and take his temp and sure enough he has a fever. should i be worried? could this be teething? or his body building a strong immune system?

another note: no diarhea and his urin is normal.
