What Would This Illness Be?

Any suggestions will help. I do plan on calling my doctor again today. I have had a fever with chills and sweats off and on since Sunday.

So here's the question my 2 year old has sticky white dandruff looking gunk on the top of her scalp(she is late to get hair so when wet you can see scalp) I didn't see anything moving what is it? What should I do?? She has not been scratching at all, and her brothers look fine. She also loves to rub yogurt in hair...don't ask...and hates to have her scalp scrubbed, which i...
