Hello,

You should give him Pedialyte to prevent dehydration.

You can make Oral rehydration solution at home with salt & sugar mixture in water.

Also he can suck ice cubes.

You can give him OTC Emetrol Oral Solution One or two teaspoonfuls.

Monitor his body temperature.

If symptoms 'll persist then see his doctor in morning.

Hope this helps.
