Thank you for your question.
This could be an indication of an infection.
Has he been seen for this?
I would recommend that he be seen as he will likely require a course of an antibiotic if an infection is proven.
This could be a respiratory infection.
I would like that he should have a chest x-ray, complete blood count among other tests to confirm the diagnosis and then proceed accordingly.
