It can be viral upper respiratory tract infection. For that symptomatic management can be done. For fever antipyretic syrup can be prescribed. You have to monitor fever at two hour with thermometer. If no improvement then blood test and throat swab can be taken for further work up. I suggest you consult pediatrician for physical examination.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
