Small sips more : Try giving your child small sips of liquid more often. You can also try popsicles. A tepid bath can lower his body temperature. Remember fever is part of the body's response to infection. If he seems very uncomfortable you can use an acetominophen suppository if he is not keeping liquids down. If your son increases in irritablity, is not peeing at least once every 4 hrs or is drooling go to er.
