good evening, the above said condition will be self limiting, care should be taken to maintain the childs hydration and nutrition status, it is contagious , so take care that the child dosent contract the infection to ther small kids , pregnant ladies and immunosuppresed patients. a single dose of oral vitamin A should help him.
