Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Recurrent fever and joint pains i would like to consier the possibility of Rheumatic Fever in this age group and rule it out.
Would suggest you to discuss with your Pediatrician who may advise getting ASLO titer.


In case you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Wishing you happy and healthy life

Take Care
