Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear Sir/ Madam,

Thank you for posting your query at healthcaremagic.com

It looks like normal viral fever, nothing to worry. Give you child paracetamol, which will take care of fever. The headache, uneasiness, teeth rattling is mainly due to fever.

Give food and plenty of fluids when temperature drops down. Engage your child in activity if he wishes or of his interest to keep him occupy.

If fever does not subside, consult pediatrician and get the blood test does to rule out any underlying cause.

If you have any further query please revert back to me.
I will happy to assist you.
With best wishes.
