Check-up: How high is fever? What colors is drainage from nose? There could be many causes. Illness in children is most likely a virus and symptomatic control is usually all that is needed. I would advise you to a make an appointment with his pediatrician if you are concerned.

You might be: Condoms are not very effective by themselves because there is leakage around the base or they may leak. The pull out method is also very unreliable. We call people who count on the pull out method 'parents'. Check a pregnancy test in a few days. Check again 3-4 days after that as well to be sure.

Hand numbness: There is a good chance that what you are describing is carpal tunnel syndrome. If this continues wear a wrist splint at night. If this does not solve the numbness then you need to discuss this with your doctor.
