Thanks for your query.
Your child is having respiratory infection which could be allergic,viral or bacterial.
Since he is having high grade fever with cough physical examination is i suggest you to get him examined by pediatrician for proper management.
In the meantime give acetaminophen for fever 6 hourly.
Give plenty of fluids,lukewarm water will be soothing.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless
