Thanks for your query.
As per test child is having infection and pencillin was takes 24 to 48 hours for medicine to act.
Continue with acetaminophen every 6 hourly,give plenty of fluids,fruit juices vegetable soup and soft bland diet so as to maintain hydration and nutrition.
In case fever persist after 48 hours get him re evaluated by pediatrician.
Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
