My 10 year old son was having continuous temperatures for about 30 days. His pulse rate was around 120 beats per minute. He was treated with antibiotics such as Zanocin, Cephixime, Ciproflaxin, Monocef, Chloroquinine, Falcigo....etc. but temperature was not coming down. He was given montox test and it came positive. Chest X-ray was clean and CT scan of brain was clean & sonography of stomach, liver and kidney was clean....in the mean time he was started with TB drug (4 tablets) and he was continuing with that for 18 days. Two three child specialists checked him and found nothing abnormal.

The Montox was done on both the hands....he was having pain on the area where Montox was tested. He was complaining pain in the elbow joints, wrists, pain above right ear, two fingers on the right and left hand.

RA was tested negative. ASO titre was on the border line. The fever persisted for about 45 days. It will subside when paracetamol tablet/syrup is given, then after 4-5 hours once again fever will reappear. After 45 days, the fever subsided automatically.

But now he is still having slight pain in the elbow joints, still pain on the Montox test area, pain on 2-3 fingers on both the hands, pain in the wrists, also pain just above right ear (only when pressed). Still his pulse rate is maintaining around 100-110 beats per minute.

Any Expert opinions on the prevailing condition?
