but after 2 days the fever not cured, then we go to local physician he give medicine but the situation was same. after taking the med with 2 hrs temp goes to 99 deg F but after 4-5 hrs it rises by 100-101
and to till date the situation is same we contact the same doctor now he is prefering the injection 2 in one day.
right noe my wife and son is at village there the medical facility is not good
and same the practing docoors may not be good exp.

i am at delhi and its difficult to reach there..
Can you name what medicine was prescribed after the visit to the doctor?
And what other symptoms does your son have apart from fever?

Does he continue to have cough and cold now?
Is he having rashes in his body?
Is he passing urine normally?
the cough is very less ,,,no rashes is there
yes urine is normal
Is he eating well or is he vomiting?
he is not eating well
Have they performed any tests on him?
some time vomit due to cough initially
And what is his current weight?
then we started levoline .31 mg respules.SOS
current weight is 8.2 kg
one week bak he had 8.9kg
Let me brief you.
Continuous high grade fever lasting for more than 5 days is concerning.
yes but some times it was reported by 99 deg F
Chest examination and investigations helps doctor rule out serious examination.
At this point of time, without looking at the child, it is difficult to predict the nature of illness.
docor said need not to worry by every time ,but we are felling no relax from fever
to control fever.
Ibugesic syrup in the dose of 4ml can be used twice a day if crocin drops doesn't bring the fever down.
or sir any suggestion or some prediction
You can also inform the attenders there to rub his body, neck, armpits and forehead with XXXXXXX warm water to bring the fever down.
I would rather like him to be evaluated instead of trying injections to control fever.
At this point of time, I suspect bacterial infection
means injection should be avided
I mean, I would like the doctors there to identify the type of infection - bacterial or viral or any other cause
before treating him with injectables.
Injection has its benefits. Besides it is also not clear what injections the doctor wish to give him.
ok sir i talk to doctor.
You can talk with the doctor and gain necessary information
regarding the nature of infection
sir this may be case to some infection.
and what injections the doctor want to give him.
sir that is i am worry i dont know how much doctor have expertise.
he belong to village area.
If you suspect the doctor's have no enough competence
You may ask the attenders to visit a higher centre.
thaks for your suggestion.
District hospitals would have more experienced doctors
Hope you have followed what i suggested?
Do you have any questions?
yes sir sure it will help me more.. once again thanks.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
