Baby with flu, fever returned after days without illness

My 11 month old ran a fever (101-104.2 F) for three days. We took him to the doctor last Monday and they confirmed he had influenza A. His fever went away and by Wednesday he was completely normal in every way. Now he has a fever again, beginning last Saturday night. We didn't give him any fever reducers or medication, just lots of breastmilk, bone broth and other fluids. His fever is 101.5 - 102.3 F. Any ideas on what this could be? Could he still be battling the flu? He's been playing and acting normal, just not eating much solid food. Could this be a secondary bacterial infection? I'm really worried...
