avoid sprite and frooti, u can give him ORS to maintain his hydration. watch for signs of dehydration which would require immediate medical help. watch for signs of severe congestion in the chest- hurried breathing , wheezing, chest retractions, if the child is not taking any food or water , he may require hospitalization to rule out any severe infections.
