Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum

It is indeed a matter of concern if your child is running temperature since past five days. There could be various causes which has to be diagnosed and treated. The commonest causes are Upper respiratory tract infection, Otitis media, Urinary tract infection, Malaria, etc. I would suggest you to consult a good child specialist at the earliest for a thorough examination and the treatment of the same.
