Since how long the fever is there? Is there any other symptom? When did you give panadol?

Thank you for the input.

You can give him panadol now. I hope it will reduce the temperature. You should check it after half an hour. Keep light dress, do not wrap the child with blanket.You can give luke warm water sponging. If the temperature reach 103 or 39.4 you need to take him to hospital for management. If the temperature does not go down by tomorrow you should consult his doctor for a check up.

Any query, please feel free to ask.
