Pediatrics/22months old having fever


Hello Doc,

My son is 22 months old and is having  fever since 10th july. His doctor suggested to give Ibugesic plus (5ml - 3times a day)for first five days. The fever normally is coming every after 7-8 hours. Post five days , now he is on Antibiotic for last 2 days. He do not have any other symptoms like cough, cold, diarrhea, or vomiting. His appetite also seems normal. Basically he eats well when he is not having fever. The fever makes him very uncomfortable. Highest fever i recorded is 102F. but normally is 99-101F.  I will complete his antibiotic course by friday the 19th.

Will you please suggest if we should run any specific blood and urine test to identify the cause of the fever.


This type of fever is called continuous high fever. Often this is seen in conditions like typhoid fever, so most doctors usually start therapy matching with typhoid fever. At times it may take 4-5 days to show response with antibiotic.
It is important in your case to get at least basic investigations done. Also ensure good intake of food and urine 4-6 times in a day.
The tests are as below:
Blood culture
Urine and stool routine microscopy

look for noisy breathing, runny nose, cough, earache, or urine discomfort.

visit a doctor if intake reduced.
