Hi, Thanks for query.
As there is fever for 2 days and getting temporary relief with paracetamol,require investigation for cause of fever.
Go for Complete Blood Count for nature of fever.
Report will show the cause for fever and afterwards go for treatment accordingly.
Ponstel and Panadol are same and gives short time relief from fever.
Give him enough water and juices.
Ok and bye.
