You should not panic on first day of fever if evreything else means his alertness,fluid intake and food intake is normal.give him plenty of liquids and light diet.He is 11 years of age if his weight is more then 35 kg children tablet may not be effective,you can give paracetamol tablet for fever every 6-8 hours without any problem.if fever persists do visit a doctor.
