Question
My Son has got fever 5th time since January.
Age : 5 Yrs.
January last week : We did a Root Canal on one his tooth.
He had fever after 4 days of root canal( Doctor confirmed as Viral )
Again he got fever in Feb 2nd week( Doctor confirmed as Viral ).
Later he got fever in Mar 2nd week( Doctor confirmed as Viral )
Later he got fever in April 3rd week( Doctor confirmed as Viral ).
We had to do another root canal because he was complaining about tooth pain.
Now he has fever. Currently he is in Chennai for vacation. I would request you to suggest a good doctor in chennai where he can personally visit.

Thanks and regards,
XXXXXXX

Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for getting back to me.

Ok, do present the old blood reports and the urine reports to the doctor at the time of consultation , it will help in further management.

As for the fever do give him Tylenol ( Paracetamol ) of about 1000mg / day on XXXXXXX in 4 divided doses each after food. This will take care of the fever, but for the complete recovery a complete consultation and evaluation of the child by the specialist is recommend.

Wishing him good health.

Dear Sir,

What we have observed is that the during the all the five episodes my son has had Ice Cream and one of the time he has had cold water from the refrigerator( a day or two before he gets fever). I have a doubt about infection on his tonsils.
Anyway thanks for your help , i will get him checked by the experts by this week.

Thanks and regards,
XXXXXXX
