Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
He could be having vitamin deficiency .Have you visited your Doctor to know the cause of his fever ? It is important to get evaluated for fever in kids as if any infection , the chances of getting worse are high.
I advise you to visit your Pediatrician and get your kid treated with an antibiotic if needed.I also advise you to get a peripheral smear along with blood counts tested.

Take care.

Does it bleeds regularly during brushing his teeth?
If it so first of all you need to change your brush to ultra soft kids brush (kindly change after every 3 months),
secondly, you need to see it by yourself that any depostion or collection is present on the entire dentition.

If the latter is present as a soft matter (plaque) then kindly clean it with the brush if hard matter is there then see a paediatric dentist.
