Brief Answer: Check temperature, use paracetamol... Detailed Answer: Hi, It seems he is suffering from an infection. It is too early to predict the nature and severity of infection. At this instance, I would suggest to record his body temperature frequently; atleast once every 2 hours. Temperature that is persistently above 100 deg F is concerning and needs visit to a doctor. In the meantime, you can give him paracetamol either in the form of tablets or syrup. The dose depends on his weight, so please add his current body weight in the follow up. You can also try sponging his body areas (forehead, neck, underarms, body and limbs) with XXXXXXX warm water. Encourage him to eat (fruits and vegetables can be palatable) and drink lots of fluids. Hope this helps. Regards
