The kid could be suffering from a viral fever
or the early stages of a bacterial illness. From the symptoms you have written above, I cannot be more certain than that. In any infective illness, the appetite is usually diminished, so I would stress
on giving the child light food in small amounts but more often, give him more liquids, and allow him rest but do not curtail him from playing if he wants to.
If the problems have not cleared in the next few days, please take him to the pediatrician
for an examination and for blood and urine tests.
