Usually children present like this.
Some times with fever also the extremities will be cold.
You watch the child.
If he has been feeding well and playing whenever temp was down and active in between fever ,you need not worry.
Cover the extremities,put socks etc and observe.
By morning if he is not OK, you can go for review again.
He seems to be on antibiotics already.

Good luck
God bless
