Child suffering from fever, throat infection. Treatment? - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query
Sorry to hear that
Did you record his temperature?
his temp is 96-98 in morning 100 at afternoon and night
I think he may need a course of antibiotic
i showed him to a doctor
What did the doctor say?
he prescribed clamp 11/4 for 2 time a day for 6 days
alongwith neozeet syrup 3 times a day
my child is 6.5 years old
question is should i continue with this for 2 for days or so i need to change any medicine ?
I will suggest you on this
You should continue all the medicines for 6 days
so u are suggeting me to keep him 2 days more on this prescribed medicine right ?
is there any restriction for food ?
he eats egg and mangoes a littile more than usual daily
Clamp 11/4 is an antibiotic
Finish the entire bottle
I mean complete the course of antibiotic
ok i will continue with clamp
but clamp is not bottle it is tablet provided
Neozeet and calpol, you can stop after 2 to 3 days
with 1 1/4 dosage for 2 times a day
Please finish the full course of tablet clamp
What is the weight of yous son?
regarding food any restrictions ?
he is eating home made food only now
ice creams or cold drinks
Continue with home made food
yes this i have avoided as doctor already mentioned
Plain dal and rice will be better
is providing egg ok or not ?
You can give it
ok and mangoes ?
There is no restriction for it
Yes, you can give mangoes too
now if after 2 days fever of 100 degree persists wat should i do ?
Is there anything else I may help you with, ?
and this fever comes only in afternoon or night tome rest of time no fever
It will gradually subside
Continue to give calpol for 2 more days
k what is the reason for this fever ? is it due to the exertion of 3 days in car comboined with 6 hours in water park and outside food for 3 days ?
or any thing else ?
It is because of the throat infection usually because of streptococcal infection
He will recover soon
ok so i hope no need for any blood or urine tests if fever doesnt subsidy ami i correct ?
It is not required as such
He shall be fine in 3 days time with continued antibiotics
only if required i will contact else if fever subsides in 2 days this is not required
Yes, that is right
