and for next 4-5 hrs.. child feels good
Doctor :  
ok
User :  
but later seems he started crying pehaps due to some pain in stomach and soon later get the fever
User :   and the moment we gave him Flexion then after sometime say 30 min.. fever come down

and fever subsides

User :   problem something with stomach pain started on Tuesday night.. then on wednesday.. not motion entire day and later reported fever around 100 and today.. Thursday.. did motion by afternoon and fever which keep on coming back on interval of 5-6 that becuase of medicein flexion

User :  
*not = no
Doctor :  
you are trying to find out the cause of it
Doctor :  
I could not say without examination about the cause
Doctor :  
One thing that I can think of
User :  
ok
Doctor :  
Upper resp infection
Doctor :  
that is the reaon of cold and cough
User :   ok
Doctor :  
But the reason of vomiting is to be found although vomiting could be a sympton in URI
Doctor :  
Feed him lot of water and fluid
Doctor :  
so that he passes out motion properly
Doctor :  
and no stomach pain
Doctor :  
Juices, milk and water are as frequent as possible
User :   ok
Doctor :  
the above precautions like care of washing hands help in restricting the secondary infection
Doctor :  
from adults
User :  
washing hands we alwasy do that whenever either of me or my my wife comes from outside
Doctor :  
Ok
User :   we only give him water, juice and cerelac.. sometime daliya

Doctor :  
That is ok
User :  
so as a matter of fact we have been giving him fluids only
Doctor :  
ok
User :  
sure ..will add juice. Was not giving him becuase he had cough and cold problem sometime back
User :   also coud there be any possibility of stomach infection?

User :  
*coud = could
Doctor :  
It is a possibility though
User :  
so what needs to be done then?
Doctor :  
that is why I was asking if any tests done
User :  
so test which you recommed is a stool test?
Doctor :  
Yes
Doctor :   How is the Urine?
User :

User :  
are you askign color?
User :  
or frequency
Doctor :  
Both
User :

Doctor :  
The best is to wait for a day and if the fever keeps coming back see the same Pediatricina
