High temp on and off for a week, no symptoms

DS is 2, Wednesday last week he had a high temp then again Thursday, it went up to 39. He was fine in himself, playing, eating and drinking as normal.

Then last night and today he’s had a temp going up to 39.7. Again he’s fine in himself. We saw a doctor today, he said probably viral. But I’m worried it’s not.

anyone else had this?

We had this and turned out to be an ear infection

Did they check ears, throat etc?

The NHS guidance is here and says see GP/call 111 if a temperature lasts more than five days which yours has.

I'd keep a diary of temps/meds so I had a record and phone 111 if you are still concerned. If you feel concerned it's ok to ask again.

Hi OP, it could be covid maybe. Symptoms can sometimes come in waves with Covid. No need to test these days, but if everything else is ruled out, it could be a possibility?
