Hello, Sorry about this illness. Please apply some calamine lotion preparation over palms/feet and glycerine and local anesthetic containing gel over tongue if there is pain while eating. Continue giving sips of warm sugar water with dash of salt for cough.

This post viral rash will gradually go away (after extending may be somewhat) so please just await clearance. Please give non-spicy dishes. Please consult pediatrician for any reappearance of fever.
