Thanks for the details

He most likely have a common cold

You should give him Calpol and Zyrtec syrup

Also give him some steam inhalation

If fever still stays high give him Ibuprofen as well

Encourage him warm fluids

Hopefully it will get better in a few days

How long should it last?
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
Should it last about a week?
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 7 days ago.

As I said it can last for few days but fever will settle in next few hours

He may have 1-2 spikes of fever in next few days

The symptoms can last 5-7 days on average
