Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr. kakkar (dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.
You may give Syp. Crocin 250mg/5ml for fever. It contains paracetamol. Give 7.5 ml in case he develops fever.
I request you to kindly upload a few images of the rashes so that I am able to confirm whether its chicken pox or not. You may upload images in "Reports Section". You may apply Calamine lotion for the rashes.
