Probably an upper respiratory tract infection, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The symptoms of your child seem to be related to an upper respiratory tract infection, probably a respiratory syncytial virus.

It is a very common virus in infants which usually last for three to five days.

I recommend using anti-inflammatory medication such as Acetaminophen (Tylenol) every four hours.

I also recommend to give your liquids and use a humidifier at home.

I suggest to use a saline nasal drops or a nasal suction bulb to help clear mucus from your child.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
