What could this be and what to do?

my toddler says that he is cold yet he is warm to the touch his temperature is 99.7 and he is a little flush in the face; also not much of an appetite. He isn't his normal rambunctious self either

  • He has a little fever, although low. Let him hang out on the couch. Don't force food. Have him sip juice or water. If it gets higher you can give some Motrin.

  • The fever is an indication that his body is fighting something. Time will tell.
