Your son has picked up a gastric infection which he seems to have caught from his cousin. Give him Rehidrat solution to drink. The more he drinks the better as this will prevent him becoming dehydrated. Also give him grated apple to eat as this will reduce his diarrhoea. If his fever persists or if his diarrhoea worsens he must be seen by a doctor.
