Your son does indeed have a high fever and his fever does not respond very easily to the usual medicines such as Calpol. His fever is not due to teething.He is a bit niggly and is not eating, but he is drinking his bottles well.His fever must be due to an infection. The possibilities are an ear infection or a virus infection such as 'baby measles' also known as Roseola.With Roseola the typical rash appears after about 3 to 4 days of high fever and lasts for a day or two. The fever settles once the rash appears. If your son is pulling at his ears then an ear infection is more likely.
