Brief Answer: you can wait. Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. Your child is having fever which is mostly viral in nature. Since there is no focus of infection I personally do not feel requirement of antibiotic . I suggest you to continue with acetaminophen every 4 to 6 hourly and meftal p in case it is above 102. Give plenty of fluids. For nose block use saline nasal drops. Wait for another 24 hours and in case symptoms persist get him evaluated by pediatrician for further management. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any further question. Wishing your child good health. God bless...
