Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

While your son's symptoms sound viral in nature, it is worth seeing a doctor who could look at his throat and rule at a bacterial throat infection needing antibiotics.

Please see his doctor as soon as possible.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!
