yes, you can give him pouri but keep it in liquid forms.
Make sure that once the ors solution is prepared dont keep it more than 24hrs and discard it if he doesnt drink.
No medicine like antibiotics will be required at present as its viral cause and antibiotics wont act on it.
Keep monitoring his temperature and observe his symptoms.
