I suggest you to get him examined by pediatrician as course of antibiotic is needed. In the meantime monitor and maintain his hydration.

Watch for urine output/feeding pattern/increased thirst. Hope I have answered your query,let me know if you have any further question I would be glad to help. Wishing your baby good health.
