Q.

3 year old - recurring fevers

My son is 3 and a half years old and has had recurring fevers about 5 times this year. They last about 3 days and usually reach about 40 degrees. There never seems to be anything seriously wrong though - my GP doesn't find signs of any ear infections or even grastro. Should I be worried? and do I need to get him to specialist perhaps?

Paediatrician

This is obviously not normal and it is important for your son to be seen by a paediatrician.
