Mgt: If your son is in any distress, I would suggest going to the ED. Sometimes children feel much better after a dose of Tylenol, (acetaminophen) but your pediatrician should be called. Keep him well hydrated with clear fluids such as Pedialyte until he can be seen.

Fever: You can give him fever reducers and reduce his temperature. Wait 30 min before offering him pedialyte so that he retains . If vomiting continues you can take him and get checked .

If that fever doesn't come down to 101 within an hour, really consider taking him to urgent care to see if there isn't anything else going on.
