Thank you for your query,
This fever is looking like some bacterial infection as the WBC count is high.
It is not a side effect of the antibiotic B cin as you mentioned.
Continue the medications as prescribed by your Pediatrician and if it is not subsiding the consult again within 3 days.
Hope I have answered your query.
