Hi,

Fever along with rash and low blood count is usually viral. But as it is already 1 week, we need detailed evaluation. Kindly take him to a pediatrician for further evaluation. Until then just give him paracetamol to control fever. Let him take rest and drink enough fluids.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
