Hi, my 6 yr old son had a temp of 38.8 for 2 days, his temp is now normal but his face is blotchy and he has a rash on his arms and a barking cough, he takes daily warfarin due to congenital heart problems so I can only give him paracetamol , should I be worried or is the rash just a hangover from a temperature ?

Thank you for your query,
As your child is having fever, rash and barking cough it is looking like Viral illness involvement of upper respiratiry tract. Continue paracetamol in prescribed dosage every 6 th hourly if there is fever and try to give sufficient oral liquids.
Consult your Pediatrician for the examination of your child and to prescribe specific treatment.
Hope i have answered your query.
