Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
I understand your concern.

I suggest you to do following things:
-give acetaminophen as per dosage (15mg/kg) every 4 to 6 hourly till fever is above 100F.
-do tepid sponging of whole body.
-give plenty of fluids.

Watch for any other symptom.
In case fever persist after 24 hours get him examined by pediatrician for further management.

Hope I have answered your query,in case you have any further question I would be glad to help.

Wishing your child good health.

God bless..
