Pediatrician 's  Response
It is common for children at this age to get frequent attacks of fever. Though it is difficult to give proper advice without examination if his weight gain is normal and he is active when free from fever it is unlikely that he has any serious disease. It is better to get his blood (including test for malaria) and urine examined to make sure that there is no major problem. The need for further investigation depends on findings on clinical examination and the results of investigation.
