additional advice would be to give him warm water sponge baths every 4 to 5 hrs once to reduce the fvere instantly so as to prevent febrile seizures, maintain his hydration and nutrition , if the fever is not subsiding even after 5 days , then he would require antibiotics and will be requiring laboratory investigations for blood and urine.
