Hello Atish and thanks for the query
Your doctor advised you the right medication and continue with it as he/she has advised you. But if fever continue for more than 2 days than your child needs a course of antibiotic to get fully treated. Consult your doctor again after 2-3 days if fever continue to come. In addition to this follow some precautions:
1. Do not keep your child in wet cloths
2. Give him fresh and light diet.
3. Keep him in hygienic condition and environment.
4. Keep your child hydrated.

Hope this will help you.
Best Wishes and get well soon
