Hello,
I have gone through your query and understand your concerns.

In my opinion you need to give him some anti pyretic syrup like syrup.paracetamol 15mg/kg body weight three times a day to control the temperature. If the fever persists he may need antibiotic treatment after proper investigations by a pediatrician.
Hope this answers your query.

Regards,
Dr.Alekhya.
