Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi Frances, I think you immediately need to show your son to a pediatrician right away to get him checked for other signs of Meningitis which is a serious infection of covering of brain. It may turn out to be a case of simple viral fever only but meningitis is serious disease which needs to be ruled out first.
