Hi Malyasmin.

Thank you for putting up your problem to Healcare Magic!
Your child is too sick to be managed by e-consult.
Please consult a pediatrician as soon as possible.
Delirium with fever may be an indication of meningitis and child may throw seizure due to it or as such febrile seizures are also common below 5 years.
He may get critical in that way.
You should start him on Syrup Sinarest 4ml 6 hourly(or other OTC Decongestant).
and Tab Augmentin 150 mg 8 hourly.
And conrol temperature with sponge fomentation.
I hope this information would be both informative and helpful for you

Hi, Thanks for using the HCM..
Is your son is 2.5 year old or 2.5 months old. Any ways the symptoms you have told suggest viral fever and fever at high grade is common in viral fever. The first thing you must do is tepid sponging to reduce the temperature along with colpol. Remember high fever >104*F is very serious and can lead to seizures, brain feveretc..If your child is 2.5years teach him to clean his nose often and also gargle. Take him to doctor if the symptoms does not comes down.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
