Hello and welcome to health care magic. Thanks for your query
Since your child is having fever and neck pain ( muscle pain
), I would suggest you to see the pediatrician
as early as possible.
Persistent fever and neck pain are two alarming signs for meningitis
which can not be ignored.
Look for other alarming signs like- drowsiness
, irritability, poor feeding, convulsions, head ache, vomiting, excessive unexplained crying.
For fever you can give your son calpol syrup and tepid sponging ( with cold water)
Wish you all the best
