In brief: Try less

Otc cold remedies are not recommended and mixing can be even more dangerous.
Treat the fever with advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) and consult your pediatrician for a flu culture and recommendation for additional treatment.

The two are safe to mix.
There is no interaction between the two. Be careful with reading labels to make sure you don't have any duplication of medications or medication categories.
