Small child, suffering from high fever. Taking lariago for suspected malaria, rashes on skin. Cure for fever?

I have a 2 year old kid who had 104 fever last week. The ped suspected of malaria and put him on Lariago for 3 days. The fever subsided but is back from yesterday again reaching 103. On Tuesday night, he also had mosquito bite like rash for which the ped gave him Hicope. I m not too sure why the fever is not subsiding. Looks like he s catching it from his playschool

Thank you for your query.

I suggest that you discuss with your doctor and get your son investigated. Simple investigations can direct to the right course of management and the cause of the fever.

Your observation that your son is catching an infection from the play school is correct. At this age the immunity of a child is low and he would tend to contract infections frequently. This is a very normal phenomenon and you need not worry on this count.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
