Hi,

By what you say it could be recurrent viral illness or recurrent otitis media. If it is only fever - I would not have worried. But recurrent otitis media or ear infection needs attention. I suggest working up for IgA deficiency.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
