my 9 yr old son has had a fever for three nights--only at night usually feels better by day. has had bad cough for about 5 days. thought it was allergies until he got the fever and then threw up the first night of fever. has had minimal appetite. has sore throat but assume that is because he is coughing so much and has really runny nose.

Hi, Welcome to Just Answer! If you have questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.
What medications is she on?
Are you there?
What medications is he on?
all over the counter stuff just to alleviate some symptoms
mucinex, ibuprofen for sore throat,
it is likely that he has developed a super added infection
needs to see dr?
blood test ( total and differential count) would be helpful to find out if it ios bacterial or viral.
If it is viral, it would subside in 4-5 days
If it is bacterial, then he may need a course of antibiotics
Strep throat should also be ruled out
Continue giving ibuprofen every 8 hours
saline drops if there is nasal stuffiness
Infection will suppress appetite. Once the infection is cured, he will regain his normal appetite
Also try to keep him well hydrated by giving enough fluids
