Hello and welocme to HCM
Your son is having a viral infection.
It is very imporatnt to maintain good hydration and nutrition during this period for early recovery.
at regular intervals in case there is rise in fever.
Ice-packs will also help to control temperature.
If your son is not eating anything, soups and juices should be given regularly.
Stopping diet will do more harm than good.
In case there is superimposed bacterial infection
, you need to visit your doctor.
Bacterial infection is indicated by fever with chills and rigors, sore throat
or burning micturition.
Hope it helps.
Thanks and take care
