Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query.

I suggest that you request the child's parents to maintain a temperature record of the child and get the following investigations done:
1. Hemogram
2. C Reactive Protein
3. Malarial Parasite
4. Widal Test
5. Blood culture
6. Urine routine examination
and get him reviewed by the doctor. In the meantime he can be given tab. acetaminophen/paracetamol 3/4 tab. 4 hourly if the temperature is above 100F orally. I cannot comment on the rash without having a look at them.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing the child an early recovery.
