Brief Answer:
Suggestive of hepatitis

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history about your son and understood the concerns.
The history is suggestive of hepatitis with complication which need a detailed clinical evaluation, examination and further investigations to know the exact diagnosis so that an appropriate management can be done.
Do not give Tylenol or anything that contains Paracetamol.
Since your son is in ER, please give further feedback about the reports of investigations, treatment being given and condition of your son.
