HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, without the evidence of infection antibiotic should never be given in this age group such symptoms could be due to allergic condition or viral fiver and does not need any treatment, but of course symptomatic medicine can be tried like, analgesic and antipyretic, no need to worry about this, let run the course of disease and everything would be fine soon, take care .
