hello ,welcome to HCM....
acc. to reports WBC count more than 15000 indicates infection so fever will remain on & off for few days until the infection settles down....
ideally SYP. ibugesic plus is indicated if fever spike goes above 101F(high grade fever) & syp. Crocin is indicated for fever around 100F...
SO maintain the fever chart & consult good paediatrian...
take care
