Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Since your son's high fever has been persisting, despite trying medication at home, I would advise you to take him to a doctor for a proper evaluation. This will include a complete physical examination, and if necessary, a few lab tests. There could be various causes for your son's persistent high fever and cough, and a lung infection / pneumonia could be one likely cause. Since young children can easily develop complications, it is better to have a proper medical evaluation to identify the cause and then take the appropriate treatment.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
