Toddler with high fever and dry cough, has drowsiness. Suggest a medicine?

Hi, my 21 month old has a fever of 102.7. He has had the fever for over 24 hours and is not getting better with liquids and sponging. I have not given him any meds. He is very drowsy and will not eat. He has a rattle while breathing and a dry cough . Should I try meds before calling the dr., if so what kind? Thanks in advance.
