I don't think you need to worry since he is already with antibiotics. Hemoglobin of 13 is good and with the use of antibiotics he would be fine. Just give it some few days and you will see how your son is improving. It persist then probably there is a resistant germ somewhere or there is another loci of infection that needs to be investigated. Is malaria common amongs you?
