4 year old having low grade fever, headache, throat pain. Liver function test reports high. Given augmentin for sinus infection

Hi, my almost four year old son has had a fever for 10 days now, up to as high as 103.5 and then down to a low grade fever. I took him to the hospital four days ago and he stayed for a day and a half. Lots of labwork done. ESR was 75, and next day was 63. His CRP was 7.2 then 7.5 next day and is now 6.3. Liver function tests were all high, out of normal range. WBC count was 11.53 but is now 9.36. And RBC was 4.08 and now is 3.73, his doctor termed it a little anemic . The doctor and hospital are treating him with antibiotic Augmentin for suspected sinus infection. My son has headache and pain in throat and has complained of stomach pain. What could be going on? I am very worried!!

Hi,
Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Your child seems to have a viral fever with hepatitis as you told the liver function tests are high.
But the other infections like sinus infection, typhoid fever, urine infection, malaria are to be ruled out by doing blood and urine investigations for them.
Maintain his hydration by giving plenty of oral fluids.
I advise you to follow the treating doctor advise and discuss with him of your concerns.
The stomach pain, headache may be due to the infection and can be treated by your doctor.
Nothing to worry and the the doctor will look into your child problems and he will take care of the problems.
Hope I have answered your query
