Dr. Stephen Scholand
Internal Medicine - Infectious Disease

In brief: Viral infection

This sounds like a common viral infection.
The sore throat was the key - since that's where the infection most likely took hold. I would show this to a doctor ASAP-so they can try to figure out 'what' is causing the infection and therefore direct treatment. Hopefully your child is updated on all their shots, as unfortunately there's a resurgence in diseases that should have gone away (ie. measles)
