You certainly have: the right to request referral to a pediatric infectious disease specialist. Tell his pediatric about the current impact of your son's illness on academics, behavior, peer interaction, sleep, appetite & activity level. Explain that you'd feel more comfortable having a consult, even if nothing more can be done. With a pedes I.D. report, you can get modifications in schoolwork, called a Section 504.
