thank U for the query,
it is surprising that you haven't advised ur son to seek a doctor nearby and rather searching solution online. the doctor needs to examine him. u should call him right away without delay and get him to a nearby medico. ( flu - like symptoms often hint a viral too). Avoid outside food and use boiled cooled filtered water for drinking. Seek the doctor earliest to rule out possibilities by necessary investigations.
