Thank you for your query,
Below 6 years of age frequent infections of upper respiratory tract infections and gastrointestinal infections are common due to frequent exposure to viral and bacterial pathogens.
Nothing to worry as there is no fever at present.
Give him plenty of oral fluids for maintaining hydration.
Give balanced and soft diet for nutrition during recovery.
Multivitamin supplementation can be given during recovery.
Take general measures like hand washing, avoid exposure to crowds and immunize the child as per his routine schedule.
Hope I have answered your query.
