Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The symptoms he is experiencing is likely to be a viral illness. Stay hydrated and take adequate rest. He can take Tylenol for fever. If the rash is itchy, use Cetirizine at bed time. Viral infections subside by itself in 7 to 10 days.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
