Thanks for writing to us

If there is no vomiting and other vitals are normal means there is no problem in breathing and his skin color is normal then there is no need to worry.

You give him sips of water along with cold milk.

You can give liquid digene or mucaine gel or any antacid.

If pain persists you should visit a physician

Best wishes

Take care
