Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Viral fevers last for a maximum of 7 days.
And usually subsides later.
What were the reports of the blood test which you got done.
I think this issue should be investigated and the diagnosis of viral fever should be trashed.
Kindly consult a good paediatrician in person for further evaluation and management. 
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.

Fever for more than 1 week despite antipyretics need to be a matter of concern as most viral fever subsides its own within 5 to 7 days
Need to do widal test..cxr...hemogram..urine routine test to rule out other causes of fever as fever is having prolonged course
