Hi, kim,
Thanks for query.
As your child is having fever and cough, he should be given an antibiotic medicine.
Even if he has viral infection, there is no problem giving antibiotic because if it turned out be bacterial infection then there are all the chances of having pneumonia.
Consult your doctor and discuss about this.
Give him cough syrup as well.
Ok and bye.
