Hi,
Welcome to HCM!

The child with fever for 2 weeks and right abdominal pain( is it upper rt abdomen or lower part of abdomen on the right side?),Needs some investigations like
Blood count and ESR, widal test for typhoid , liver function tests., and ultrasound abdomen.

The conditions to be ruled out are
Hepatitis,
Typhoid,
Blood counts to decide about bacterial or viral infections ,
Gall stones though rare in kids,
Pyelonephritis( kidney infection)

She needs re evaluation by a pediatrician to examine and decide what are the possibilities from the above conditions.
2 weeks fever is a rather prolonged one and needs evaluation.

Good luck
God bless
Dr Uma
