Welcome at HCM
I have gone through your query and being your physician i completely understand your health concerns.
In my opinion he should be hospitalized and get treatment as described . there is need to get the daily FBC, LFTs, RFTs to look for the prognosis.
he should be treated by the pediatrician.
Meanwhile stay calm
Get well soon
Hope your query is adequately addressed if you still have any feel free to ask
