Child with pain in the stomach, sore neck, smelly urine, vomiting and diarrhea. Need treatment?

Hi there, two weeks ago my son got a fever and ended up with a sore tummy and vomited and had diarrhoea for a few days. Then spent a week fine. Then for last week he has had the fever on and off all week, eating has stopped pretty much all of today, and had a friends birthday party today and spent most of the time having sat on his nanna s knee and ate maybe one piece of food. Tonight I noticed he was sweaty once again and he had fallen asleep in seconds after being awake not long before and I had to wake him to take panadol so he could go back to sleep. I don t have a thermometer but I know his temp has been high. He s had no vomiting this week, his urine has started to smell today, and for a normally very active kid he is now doing nothing. He did say today the back if his neck was sore but other than that hasn t complained of anything. Any answers would be great. Thanks Antoinette.

Thanks for your query.
For fever off n on 1 week ,poor intake, smelly urine, sore neck & letharginess.
He might be having a simple viral illness but it might turn out to be a urine infection or meningitis ( infection & inflammation of the lining that surrounds brain & spinal cord) .
Please get him checked soon.
In the meantime give him frequent small drinks & panadol syrup .
Hope you find this information useful.
