Low grade fever, abdominal pain, low energy. On antibiotics. Is this normal after a high temperature?

My three year old had been sick for 9 days now. Last weekend he had a low grade fever and complained of a tummy ache. During the week, his fever disappeared but you could tell he was fighting something. He just had low energy and was tired. This weekend his temp shot up to 104.5. We went to the doctor on Monday to get antibiotics . No fever today, which is great, but now he is cold and clammy. Says he s just tired but....I don t know he s never been cold and clammy this normal after a high temp?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.
I can understand your concern.

Child being cold and clammy may not be normal. The peripheries should be as warm as the central part of the body. What is his temperature like? What are the other associated complaints?
Please monitor for danger signs. The danger signs are
1. Poor feeding and repeated vomiting.
2. Lethargy.
3. Loss of consciousness.
4. Fits or seizures.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
