Hi,

By what you say your son should be suffering from viral illness. Whatever you are describing is very common in viral illness and I suggest you keep him well hydrated and alternatively give Paracetamol and Ibuprofen.

Unless he's having respiratory distress or decreased urine output or lethargic while there is no fever or red rash all over the body you need not worry.

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

Take care

Regards,
