Hi.
Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.
Noted the history about your 6 year old son who is suffering from breathing trouble, moaning and groaning.
This is followed by pain in the throat and the problems repeated and has fever too.

I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Take your son to the Pediatrician for clinical evaluation, examination and investigations so that a proper diagnosis and treatment are done.
Do not treat children at home as they can go into complications very fast.
He is going to need an antibiotic and supportive and symptomatic treatment.

I find this answer helpful
