Hi welcome to Health care magic..........
Blood CRP being positive , likely suggests a bacterial infection and so needs an antibiotic.
Can use Syr Amoxiclav , does adjusted to his weight, for a week.
Continue ibugesic plus in appropriate doses till he has fever and can also use salt water gargling , to sooth his throat.
