Pediatrician 's  Response
welcome to Health Care Magic Forum

All the symptoms you mentioned about the boy is not very comforting. You need to take the boy to a specialist pediatrician. We need to run the blood tests again and rule out any serious cause of his illness. Not just the baseline investigations, he needs to undergo some advanced tests to be certain that its nothing serious. But don't delay on him. Hope everything goes on fine.
