What are the blood investigations done? Is CBP is normal, MP and WIDAL tests are negative? Sedimentation test is high but it is a nonspecific test and if it is hight other chronic diseases to be ruled out by doing investigations like Chest x ray and Mantoux test if required as per your Pediatrician advise.
