Thanks for posting your query.

For the fever, you need to give him Crocin syrup at dose of 10mg/kg body weight. Also, do sponging with tepid water and make sure he's well protected.

For the cold, you need to give him Otrivin pediatric nasal drops and steam inhalation. He would be fine in 1-2 days. Tablet Sinarest has phenylephrine which is not required at this time orally.

I hope you are following with your Pediatrician / Pediatric Neurologist for delayed milestones.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks for getting back.

It is possible that his stomach symptoms are due to a viral infection.

Just give him light food and plenty of fluids, particularly fluids like pedialyte or oral rehydration solution (ORS). Dissolve 1 packet ORS in 1 litre of water and use within 24 hours. Throw away the rest of it and make a fresh solution the next day. Small, frequent meals will also help.

If he has vomiting as well, then also give him ORS after every time he vomits.

However, if he doesn't get better within a few days or he passes blood in his stools or his responsiveness reduces, please take him to a paediatrician as soon as possible.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no further queries.
