Look mam one thing you should bear in your mind that infant should be kept away from all the unnecessary medicine particularly antipyretic ( Medicine which brig down the body temperature) this kind of medicine is highly hazardous to the infants, one more thing you should be more precise in term of fever like measuring the body temperature and noting it down (Mild fever is not exact term) if the body temperature above 100 c then it need to be managed otherwise no need of any medicine, running nose is very common condition among the infants and children it is all because of allergic constitution and it is almost self limiting phenomenon, again you better consult some good pediatrician for further guide.
