High temp for 3 days now

Ds2 got sent home fri from school as he was sick in class. He had a heaadache, had been a bit sniffly and coughy for a couple of days.

His temp went up to 39.1 during the afternoon. Managed to get it down with calpol and a cool wash, and after a sleep he perked right up. Temp was still a bit high (in 38's) but he seemed fine.

I was working yesterday and today so haven't been around alot. He's generally been ok, but dh says every now and then he just wants to lay down, then perks up again. When I got home last night his temp was way up again but he was complaining of being really cold. Again calpol seemed to bring it down again.

Just home today and he's been sick again this morning and temp up to 39.2. I'm really getting worried, but he says he's ok- just feels a bit tired and sore.

Do I panic and take him to Dr's tomorrow? Or just put it down to a bug and aslong as he says he's ok just keep treating with calpol?

His temp hasn't dropped below 37.6 since fri. (well atleast all the times I've been here takingit)

Advice anyone please?

My dd was a bit like this last week she had a temp and cough and did throw up a few times.

Dp took her to the GP and he said virus and that a nasty one was going round (as usual).

Hope he gets better soon.

I would have him seen - I think 3 days with no sign of coming down is the limit they say
