Thanks for the query,

I do understand your concern

I have noted your medical problem

The data that you have provided suggest the possibility of a stomach infection in your son. Further narrowing down the diagnostic possibility can be achieved by a clinical examination by a local physician. Headache can be a part of the fever. He will require routine blood and stool tests and ultrasound of the abdomen. All these tests will help us establish the cause of the problem so that treatment will become easy.

I urge you to get your son evaluated by a local physician

I hope that I have clarified your query
Please get back to me in case you have any other concern
Best wishes and wish you good health
