Child having viral fever. Unable to sit and fainting. Advise regarding the diet and treatment? - Online Doctor Chats
My son has high temperature
since last night
I took him to the hospital today
the doc said that it is viral fever
the doc said that he will have this high temp for at least 3 days
but i am little worried....he is not able to sit....he appears to be fainting down...and feeling tired
he is just 20 months
Is he feeding well?
he is not able to open his eyes
he is not taking any food...he is saying no to everything...except water
is it ok for fever...
What other symptoms is he having apart from fever?
Yes you can give glucose drink
severely high temperature.....
Give him brocin 4 times a day
sorry i meant crocin
Phenergan can cause drowsiness
I have not given him crocin...
he is not eating anything at all...
Pacimol is the same as crocin
should we keep giving him the syrup...
It needs to be given 4 times a day as long as he has fever
Now we need to talk about phenergan
the doc said every 6 hours...
How often are you giving it?
Phenergan how of ten are you giving?
the temperature is really severe...
we have given 2 times so far...
When was the last dose?
And how much was it?
pacimol at 4. 30 ...3ml
Phenergan at 1 P.M ...3 ml
planning for next Pacimol dose at 10.....3ml.
Yes Pacimol needs to be given
I was just wondering if the dose of phenergan is high enough to cause drowsiness
his cough is ok now...not that severe...in fact, he did not cough for last 2-3 hours,,,
I think you should slow down with phenergan
ok we will just continue with Pacimol......
This medicine needs to be given only if the nose secretions are bad enough
he has a very moderate running nose...but no cough for the time being...
For now make him comfortable
Try to get down his fever
Do not wrap him in too many clothes
Let his skin breathe
Let the air get his temperature down
he has a shirt on...is that ok?
A cotton shirt would be great
You can also do some tepid sponging
No woollen clothes
He should get better since the cough is under control now
i am really worried about the temperature,,,
Yes temperature will kill the germs
but the doc said...he should wait for at least 2 days
As long as germs are there in him, he will have the temperature
Viral goes away on its own
Phenergan brings down the secretions which help reducung the germs
But usually I give just one dose of pherengan for an episode
Since it causes a lot of drowsiness
should i skip it for night...
just this noght...
Whenever you give anti-allergics like phenergan, give it before sleeping at nighjt
can i give him one extra dose of Pacimol...
Just one dose usually does the trick
One extra dose can be given
Can I give it now...?
almost it's been 5 hours now...
Yes you can give it
Give him something to eat as well
Give him anything he wants to eat
yes doc i have tried biscuits....cakes...bread...bun....roti...idly...
he is not ever trying to taste it,,,
really worried that....
Ask him what he wants to have
give him chocos or cerelac
i think he feels bitternees
He will eat since he must be really hungry
He must not have eaten since 2 days
I am just waiting when he will eat sth...
Sure doc...will keep trying...
Can i try some masala oats....the last option...-(
Whatever he likes
Can try rice with daal
Thank you so much doctor...
hope the temperature will go down...
Thanks for consulting me
Since its a viral, it does take its time
Thank you. GN
