Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

It seems he had injury to his teeth and lips.

Teeth should be examined for any fractures.

If the tear on lip is big, it needs suturing.

For pain and fever, you can continue paracetamol in prescribed dose.

Give liquid diet.

Consult the pediatrician or a dentist for further examination and medication.

Hope I have answered your query.
