Hello, Sorry he is sick. The description fits a viral illness and no treatment is required including fever medicine to reduce temp.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Please give extra fluids and regular diet.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

If the illness lasts beyond 5-6 days please consult your pediatrician for tests like counts, urine etc.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Please ask any clarification or doubts. If he is comfortable and playing, he has no serious bug.
