Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Your child is having respiratory infection with fever which is there for 3 days.,which in most cases is viral in nature and settles in few days.
I suggest you to get him examined by pediatrician for proper management.
In the meantime give paracetamol for temperature management every 6 to 8 hourly.
Give benadryl as per dosage for 2 to 3 days.
Give plenty of fluids,warm fluid will be soothing, give vegetable soup,fruit juices.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
