Head ache with joint pains

Patient

Q: Hi, My 4 year son is complaining of head ache and joint pain in hands and legs.

Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

Here are possible causes of headache and joint pains in a 4-year-old:
Fever
Viral fever
Bacterial infection
Tonsillitis

You can try to give your child 2 ml of calpol syrup 3 times a day and do tepid water sponging. This will help him recover soon. If he is not better after 2 days, please see a Doctor.

Also, see a Doctor if the fever does not go down with sponging or Calpol.

I hope this helps you. All the best.
