This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please give him 2 doses of Arsenic Album 30c at 1 hr gap, and report after a week.

1 dose = 1 spoon from a cup of spring water where 2 pellets have been dissolved.

Make sure, that nothing enters his mouth for 1 hr before and 1 hour after the remedy.
