This sounds to be an immune problem. You should take him to a doctor and run tests to see if he needs to be treated with 'IVIG' which will boost his immune levels

Hi,Haniyah,
You go for his complete check and find out why he remains sick.
I think he requires following investigations.
Routine blood for TC,DC,ESR,platelet count,Montouqe test,Hb.
Chest X ray
Urine check up.
After all reports we can conclude what he is having.
You consult your pediatrician

18 month old with fever (101.7-103.8) only in evenings x 3 days with no other symptoms other than a slight decrease in appetite. Fevers would be evident around 8-9 pm, treated with Tylenol/ibuprofen throughout the night and gone by morning. After 3 days of this fever is gone but loss of appetite (fighting to get any food down - making sure to keep hydrated however), whiny, lethargic, prefers to be laying around and being held (typically doesn t slow down and over last week had taken 3-4 naps a day). This has been going on for an additional 4 days now. Typically has bowel movements daily, sometimes twice daily and had gone first three days without a bowel movement at all. Gave a glycerin suppository and got results. Since that day, two additional bowel movements in last 4 days. Wet diapers are sufficient. Any thoughts?
