Thanks for your query.
As mentioned by you,your child is having high grade fever and i appreciate that you have given him cool bath and medicine,but i will suggest you to take him to doctor as febrile seizures is common in this age which needs to be evaluated,in the meantime continue with paracetamol after every 6 hours,do tepid sponging,give him plenty of fluids,
Your child will be fine
God bless.

Your child is having probably viral fever and as the fever is high grade you continue Tylenol every 4 to 6 th hourly in advised dosage and do tepid sponging with lukewarm water and Advil can be given but 8th hourly only and should be given after food. Whenever children get high fevers they get jerks in the sleep and it is common for children.And if fever continues consult your Pediatrician for examination , evaluation and specific treatment.
