In brief: Good idea

If your child is unable to retain flluids, remains with a high fever and is restless and uncomfortable they should probably be seen by a doctor asap.
They may be becoming dehydrated, may have more severe illness than you are able to assess on your own, and they may require a detailed exam by an experienced clinician.
