This is Dr. David

fever with headache can be from viral meningitis

or bad viral flu infection or bacterial infection.

you should bring the child to the ER or urgent care center

they can check blood work for elevated WBC count

and do blood culture and urine cultures to check for infection

and also perform neurological exam to check for meningitis.

do you have an ER or urgent care center close to you where the patient can see a doctor?

tylenol or acetamenophen can be used to try to bring down the fever.

but the fever is quite high.
