Get to MD: If it is now Friday and he has had fever of unknown origin since Monday then you need him seen now. Get in to the family MD or Pediatrician today or to the ER or nearest urgent care facility for evaluation and tx. right now. Keep him drinking clear fluids and get going. Good Luck.

Infection: Fever with headache has many causes. The best idea is to have him examined to help determine the cause. All the best.
