Hi,thanks for query.The best thing is to measure his body temperature,if it is raised things are clear that he is having this becuase of fever.Give him some medicine for fever that you have and he should be fine in an hour.Give him plenty of liquids and light diet.Still if does not settle means his breathing and heart rate,please visit your doctor.bye.
