Welcome to HCM,
As 4 days passed having temperature and fever continues, requires evaluation.
Consult your doctor and get him examined.
Go for complete check up of blood for type of infection.
After report go for treatment accordingly.
Meanwhile continue with syrup you are giving.
Give plenty of water and light diet.
Ok and bye.
