Hello there. I can understand your concern. What he seem to be suffering is from viral infection i.e., common cold. Give him paracetamol 300 mg thrice or four times a day after food for controlling fever. Steam inhalation and tab. Levocetrizine 5mg twice a day after food for running nose. He has to drink lots of water and have a soft diet. If it still doesnt subside, take him to a general physician in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
