After the flu, and many other viral and bacterial infections, it is not uncommon for it to take several days to actually feel better. In children, many flu like illnesses will cause some mild inflammation of the brain that will make them very irritable so this is nothing to worry about as long as his fever is gone, he is taking fluids well, and getting better each day.
