Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

It seems your child is suffering from a viral illness.

The increase in SGOT and SGPT are not significant.

But the child needs investigations like CBP, malaria, widal test, dengue serology, CUE to look for the focus of infection after consulting the doctor.

Give paracetamol for fever in prescribed dose.

Maintain his hydration by giving oral fluids and soft diet.

Consult the pediatrician for physical examination and investigations.

Hope I have answered your query.
