In brief: Concerning Synptoms

Your child need to see his doctor right away.
Symptoms are characteristic of a bacterial infection of his throat, such as strep, that can often present more than just a soar throat and fever. There are other possibilities for his symptoms but the prudent action is to see his pediatrician soon.

In brief: Doctor can help...

A grade-school child with a new illness and fever, usually has an infection.
Depending on the baseline condition and past illnesses of the child, his parents can decide when to see the doctor. Normal, healthy kids with new fevers can usually do ok on tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin until seeing the doctor the next day. The doctor may give phone advice. Serious or worrisome symptoms can mean a trip to the E.R.
