Hi, fever accompanied by body aches after cold can be because of acute infection of upper respiratory tract infection. But as you have stated that the child does not has throat infection, the problem can lie in the lower respiratory tract (chest). Your history is suggestive of the infection going down but if the fever does not settle and the symptoms persist, please consult a pediatrician and you may need to start an antibiotic. Meanwhile, please give lot of steam inhalation and hot fluid sips will also help. Regards
