You can hold on to the antibiotic if not started yet as it's most likely viral. Viral cough colds take 5 to 7 days to settle. Just give crocin when he has fever, can repeat in 6 hours if needed.
Next Steps
watch for danger signs like decreased feeding, decreased activity, fast breathing, multiple vomiting, not passing urine for 6 hours. In that case take him to the hospital as soon as possible.
