Hi Karen, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
May be you should bet him Examined by a Pediatrician to rule out if he has a Viral Infection, He may need a blood work up and a Ultrasound abdomen scan to rule out the exact cause. Until the cause is found out and treated, OTC medicines will just give Symptomatic relief with frequent recurrence.

Good Luck.

Don`t do self medication with OTC medicines.Consult good child specialist & get him investigated to know the cause & appropriately treated .

my son is 1.10 years old, suffering from cold and cough from last week. He had fever from last 4 days 101-103°F. For 1st three days of fever as per Dr s prescription we had given Calpol. But no improvement in fever. Two days back Dr. prescribed Meftal-p, on first day three times a day we had given him Meftal-p and he had not fever. But on the second day we had not given him Meftal-p as per Dr s prescription and he had fever ~102°F. Again we had consulted our Dr. and he adviced to continue Meftal-p for today also. I have a question is this a viral/seasonal flu or any other?

goodevening...i suffered from chicken pox exactly 3 weeks ago and since then i have kept a check on my fever. my problem since then is that my fever keeps coming back every evening around 5-6 and stays till around 11:30. at the other times of the day my temperature is normal. even at night my temperature is normal. also my chicken pox spots went away in the normal period of 7 days and did not give me much of a trouble. i have been taking multivitamins since 5 days now but still no help. i do not have any other symptoms but only this fever which keeps coming back in the evenings.also my fever does not exceed 99F. it only fluctuates between 37.1 and 37.2.also i just feel a little weak but that really is not a big problem which affects me. i feel it could be my recovery from the viral. basically fever is my main problem. i am really worried abt this now. please can you help me with some answer?
