What Causes High Fever With Sore Gums And Red Spots?
Need more information
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. Do not worry. High fever with sore gums and red spots can be due to several reasons such as vitamin deficiencies, bacterial infections, viral cause or inflammation ( Kawasaki disease).
Kindly upload the images of oral lesions for my review. Also, check for any rashes or eruptions on hands or feet, swelling of lymph nodes esp. side of neck. Mention if she has any such finding. Any significant past or family history.
This will help in more definitive management plan.

Yes, his lymph nodes are swollen. There is no family history of any medical problems.
He still does not have a cough but is on the fifth day of a 102 fever. He still doesn't want to eat and says it's because his gums are sore, not because he feels sick.
Needs lab evaluation for infectious mononucleosis or bacterial infection
Thanks for the images. I would recommend you to visit a pediatrician for complete clinical evaluation of enlarged lymph nodes and hepatosplemomegaly. Tests including monospot for Infectious mononucleosis, CBC, CRP and blood culture will be useful. Start him on vitamin B complex and Vitamin C supplement along with paracetamol for fever at present.
Hopefully it will be of help. I would be happy to help you with further management according to clinical and laboratory results.
