Get him investigated in more details to know the exact cause of fever .increased WBC suggest some kind if bacterial infection .as he is not responding to antibiotics ,I will suggest to go for blood culture sensitivity to know the drug that will be effective.after consultation with child specialist you should investigate in more details without failing.
