Dear Sir, My son is 2.5 years old and admitted to hospital for viral fever and same has been come within few hours after the Antibiotic IV started and now he is active and okay but hesitate to eat. And doctor advised to us take scan of stomach to check the fluid. Is it necessary to scan a 2.5year old child? Please confirm can we go ahead if nothing harming.

Viral fever can cause reduced appetite. Try and give your son liquid or mashed food. The scan that your doctor advised can be ultrasound of the abdomen. It is a safe diagnostic procedure and should be carried out if your doctor has advised to do so.
