As the fever is high and associate rash on chest and fingers it is looking like viral fever. You can continue calpol every 4 to 6th hourly and if there is high grade fever you can give ibuprofen but 8th hourly only and it can be given with food and do tepid sponging and try to give plenty of oral fluids and soft diet to maintain hydration and nutrition. If fever is not getting down beyond 48 hours seek medical advise for re examination of your child and for basic investigations like CBP,CUE,MP.
