Brief Answer:
it may be pharyingitis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.

It looks like case of pharyngitis or tonsillitis to me.
Good thing is that his fever has reduced.

Throat pain may take some time depending upon severity of infection.
Warm salt water gargles 3 times a day will help.
Also try ginger, lemon, tulsi leaves.
Continue treatment given by the doctor.

Just tell me his weight and dose of medicines you are giving.

Happy to help you.
