Is this question directed to the paediatrician or to 'someone' else?I am answering this question because of the urgency of the problem. I am concerned about your child and his symptoms. In particular if he has a headache and is irritable and drowsy he may have meningitis. It is absolutely essential that you take your son to be seen by a paediatrician immediately [or to the emergency section of your nearest hospital], you certainly cannot wait until next week.
