It seems that he is having some viral infection. Just check for any swelling on side of neck if you can find one. If there is any he can have infection in his throat or ear. You may need to consult doctor if this is the case. by the time for fever give him tablet paracetamol 15mg/kg/dose ,this will relived his pain and fever both.
