My 15 month old Broke Fever last night, Acting more mushy they when he had Fever.

So my son has broken his fever and now has a rash which i was told was a good thing because that means it was viral. So since he woke up this morning he is not himself even though the fever is gone so is his spunk. Even when he had the fever he seemed more normal than then he does now. He is very cranky and mushy and clingy. He took two short naps today, and still seems sleepy. Is this normal behavior for a 15 month old after having a fever? I almost wonder if it has taken a lot out of him and he is just tired but he won't sleep. Any thoughts on if this may or may not be normal? Or am i just being a first time mom worrier?

It sounds like he is just exhausted from the fever and the rash. Keep up the fluids but if he still acts poky after another day or two, call the doctor.

The reason he is being clingy is because he wants you to continue to take care of him. Let him sleep, it will help him to feel better.
