Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, you should initially give your baby either OTC Tylenol suspension or Advil for fever.

Maintain a good hydration with Pedialyte.

It can be a viral infection and make your baby rest properly.

In case of vomiting, you can give your child OTC Liquid Emetrol.

And nasal saline drops can be given if you feel some nasal congestion.

In case of high-grade fever, more than 103 F then visit an emergency room.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
