Viral fever may be there.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I have gone through your query,from symptoms it seems viral fever,Do cold sponging ,take paracetamol 500 mg 3-4 times daily as par required and antibiotics if cough is productive.He can also take levocetrazine 5mg daily.
If e do not get relief in 2 days than he needs some blood investigation to find out the cause of fever.
I hope this answers your query.
