What causes high fever, fever blisters on the lips and chin?
The platelet count needs to be checked.
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone carefully through your query and have checked the attached images. Indeed the gums look red. I would insist you to get a total blood count (including platelet count) done. Please share the reports using the facility on the upper right of this page. It is most likely due to a viral infection and if the child is otherwise active and fine you need not worry. However, it would definitely be a good idea to get him examined by a doctor at the urgent care.
Depends on the severity of symptoms.
Thanks for writing back. It should not be a problem if you take him to a doctor in the morning but do not delay the process unnecessarily if the child seems lethargic.
