Hi dear
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

A fever of 105 with chills and rigors in a 4 year old kid definitely needs Pediatrician consultation.He mostly has an infection somewhere in his body.Please visit your Pediatrician as early as possible.After examination ,he may ask you get a blood test done for typhoid , malaria.

Take care.
