Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
You are absolutely correct in coming to this conclusion.
These are the signs of a viral illness where the child remains perfectly normal when he is afebrile.
Give him a lot of fluids and normal diet as before.
Continue with paracetamol and sponging if necessary.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing your child a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

I advise you to give paracetamol every 6 hourly if fever is above 100F,give him plenty of fluids.give coconut water,rice water.
