Greetings,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
I am sorry for his symptoms.
I feel you need to take him to urgent care.
Though there is not pain in throat, this needs an examination in person.
A throat swab can be taken.
He is vomiting too.
Fever is running high.
You can try tylenol.
This will be less irritating to stomach.
Please give adequate fluid, pedialyte.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
