thanks for the query.
the type of fever your child is having is of intermittent type. i would request some more information to reach the probable diagnosis. kindly tell me whether the fever is accompanied with sweats and chills? rash appeared before or the use of crocin? also kindly tell me the time of peak temperature? and how is his appetite? any history of bleeding from nose or gums?
will be waiting for your response
