Thank you for your query,
He seems to have throat infection.
You can continue crocin in prescribed dosage for fever and throat pain.
Stop flagyl syrup as it is an antibiotic and not useful in throat infection and without prescription of a doctor don't use medication.
Don't start any antibiotic without consulting a doctor.
Consult your Pediatrician for throat examination and for appropriate antibiotic.
Hope I have answered your query.
