Thanks for posting your query.

From the symptoms that you have mentioned it is suggestive of fever due to may be viral or due to some infection. At times over physical exertion can also lead to this.

It is very difficult to predict the exact cause for fever in initial hours and without physical examination.

Please do following which should help.

>Give him plenty of liquids, avoid cold drinks. Make him have 10-12 glasses of liquids in a day as per his choice.
>Give him light diet to eat and avoid junk foods. Small frequent portions are good.
>You can give tablet Tylenol for fever. You can give up to 3 tablets in a day every 8 hours.

He should fine in a day or two. Please seek medical attention if the fever goes very high, his intake is not good and he does not recover in a day or two.

I hope this helps and clarify your concern.

Please write again if you have something more to ask.

In case you do not have further query, please accept the answer.

Wishing him good health.
