Abstract—A fever, also known as a high temperature, is not caused by an illness. It’s usually a symptom of an underlying condition, most often an infection. In children with fever, accompanying symptoms such as lethargy, fussiness, poor appetite, sore throat, ear pain, vomiting and diarrhea. Some parents think they should not go to the hospital when children get fever, because they will be ridiculed. As a first-aid solution, An Application of expert system (AExS) can help parents to identify fever caused by viral infection. It implements forward chaining as the technique of searching through rule-base system. Some programming code were also written in PHP for making deduction of new fact from rules in the knowledge base. The web based expert system enables user to diagnose the children’s disease anytime and anywhere, just by accessing the internet. It is very interesting and has created considerable importance system to diagnose fever caused by viral infection.
