Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using helath care magic for posting your query.

If the 5year child has a fever, the child has to get investigated. he needs to get a complete blood count and his ear got checked if ear infection is a suspicion. He needs to be on antibiotics preferable cefexime or amoxycilline for 5 days so that the infection gets settled.
You certainly need to see a doctor, cause ear infections can be very painful and troublesome.
