Brief Answer:
Looks like viral illness, nothing to worry

Detailed Answer:
Hi....I understand your concern. By the report which you have uploaded, I feel that your child is having it viral illness. It is very common for liver enzymes to get elevated during trivial viral illness like this. Nothing to worry about this.

Brief Answer:
Your kid's weight is excellent

Detailed Answer:
Hi.... this is not suggestive of liver problem. Your kid's weight gain is excellent. Moreover CRP is negative....so be comfortable.

I will explain you how a viral infection behaves, so that you can be more comfortable.

Fever of few days without any localizing signs could as well a viral illness. Usually rather than fever, what is more important is the activity of the child, in between 2 fever episodes on the same day. If the kid is active and playing around when there is no fever, it is probably viral illness and it doesn't require antibiotics at all. Once viral fever comes it will there for 4-7 days. So do not worry about duration if the kid is active.

My daughter is 3 years old. We are from Nepal but have been living in Australia for last one year. She has been getting high fever which gets up to 40 C every 15 to 21 days. It was more severe in winter months here, she has had lots of check ups but nothing has been diagnosed. Many times she has had tonisilitis during fever. Now she is in fever but this time her tonsils are not swollen. Fever started from Wednesday 12 January and it is still high. I took her to GP yesterday and was told to wait before medication is given. She has been on penicillian for treating tonsilitis for last every fever. This may be viral fever so we are waiting. How long viral fever can be and what should be done if fever gets very high?
