If you had viral fever, it is very likely that your child has it too. Since he has no other symptoms, continue giving him paracetamol every 6 hours along with sponging. Fever will subside in 3-4 days All throughout make sure to keep him well hydrated as fever causes dehydration which in turn will raise body temperature further. If in case he develops any other symptoms, consult your pediatrician immediately
