Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

I understand your concern.

As per your description,you can give him OTC Tylenol/Advil and Zantac

for nausea.

Also he should maintain a good hydration with warm liquids and Gatorade.

He can do steam inhalation and saline gargles.

And do massage on forehead and cheeks.

Possibly his symptoms'll show improvement.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
