My 4yo son is being repeatedly attacked at preschool by another boy (he always tells me the same name when the teacher tells me about his injuries at collection) this boy scratches his face aggressively and draws blood.
While this is being dealt with by the school, I'm concerned about (a possible coincidence) within 24 hours of every scratch my son develops a fever and lethargy, shaking, loss of appetite. I can only find information online about cat scratches but should I be concerned now that this has happened 3 times in a very short period? (3 in the past 4 weeks) what if anything could this be?
I know small children get ill, especially at nursery, but thats usually a cold each month and only a vomiting bug once in the past year. Could this be from dirty fingernails? an infection? something the teachers aren't telling me like spitting? an allergic reaction to something they're putting on the injury afterwards?
The first time it happened my husband called me at work to say he was unwell and I assumed he was faking it to get away from this boy, lo and behold, a fever of 39. The second time I took him to the dr where they found nothing wrong with him and it was "probably just a virus". Now it's happened again?!
Thank you if you've made it this far and sorry for the long post (rant!)
