Hi
As per your query your son has Viral fever.
Because of it,he is having pain in various parts of body.
Please give him paracetamol tablets.Add antihistamine tablet.
Give him antibiotic to prevent secondary bacterial infection.
If he is having pain abdomen inspite of above measures,get an Ultrasound abdomen.
Wish him good health
