Child diagnosed with sores. Antibiotics taken for cure. Fever, headache, sore stomach. Is this serious?

Hi, my 4 year old son was diagnosed with school sores (only one school sore on this cheek) 7 days ago - he has been on antibiotics which he has just finished and it is clearing up well. He woke up last night in the middle of the night with fever , headache , sore tummy and has been very unwell today with this - shaking as well and not wanting to eat. We are trying to get pamol into him but it is very hard. we are getting him to take small sips of drink a lot. Do we need to be worried?

The school sores you mentioned has mostly no relation with the present complaints which appears to be a viral illness.

You could give him antipyretic for fever.Keep the child well hydrated and encourage small portions of meal.If the fever does not subside in 3 days then get him examined by his doctor.
