Welcome to e health forum.

It seems that your 1 year kid, might be having viral infection related infection.

Viral infections or the upper respiratory tract are usually benign, and subside within a few days with conservative management. But in case symptoms like high fever, cough, lack of sleep, irritability, lethargy, feeding difficulties, etc, your kid may need to be seen by your doctor for a physical examination to rule out conditions like pneumonia.

In such cases, proper antibiotics are needed to treat the infection.

Medications for infants, should always be given after due consultation with your doctor.
