Hi,THanks for your query , child is suffering from severe coughing and fever, your pediatrician may recommend the use of prescription medications to treat the symptoms. Do not use over-the-counter cough suppressants or expectorants without consulting your pediatrician. Severe infections that can cause coughing and fever such as pneumonia need immediate medical attention to prevent severe and possible fatal complications.
more detail consult pediatrician.
