I think the best thing you could do is take him to see the doctor. A very big concern is that little ones dehydrate so quickly when they are not eating. If he hasn't had a wet diaper in 24 hours, this means he is dehydrated. And if he has been running a temperature for that long, I would certainly get him in to the doctor as soon as I could. Hope he gets better soon, good luck.

I took him to a doctor already and the doctor advised me to observe him for two more days. He also gave me some medication. Till now he is still not eating, but i used the dropper so that he can have at least milk intake otherwise il have to confine him to the hospital. Thanks.

Call his pediatrician immediately. Even better, take him in to see the doctor. Two days sounds like a ridiculously long time for a baby to have a fever.
