Child with fluctuating fever along with teething. When medication is given the fever reduces, but again rises. - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
my son is 11 1/2 month old now
so yesterday i had shown to doctor they gave me fepanil 250 syrup
and tablet called Erox kid he gave us
so till now temprature is varying
some time noraml temp and some time around 102 F
and they told friday and saturday asked me to give syrup 4 time and tablet 3 time
so do we need to wait till the completion of course of tablet 15 -5 days course
so i am worried?
The tablet is antibiotic.
Antibiotic has to be given until its course is finished, even if the fever disappears.
You need not be worried at present.
You have started giving the medicine since yesterday only.
It might take 3-5 days for the fever and condition to improve.
If it does not improve after 5 days, then you will have to revisit your pediatrician for evaluation.
Please do not worry, as it is common for kids to have fever during this time of the year.
Please continue giving Fepanil as advised.
You can also do tepid sponging whenever the temperature starts to rise.
is it because teething?
Teething usually can cause only a small increase in temperature.
So I do not think it is due to teething.
whenever i give fepanil syrup,temp comes below 99.9 and after some few hours temp agian goes up
It is common for temperature to vary in similar way for about 2-3 days.
It is because, fever is just a symptom.
Cause may be a viral infection, bacterial infection etc.
Once the cause is getting cured, the fever will also come under control.
Have you understood what I said?
If not, please ask.
i got it
Sure. Please proceed
so temprature around 102 F how does it affects ,do we need to worry generally
You need not worry unless the temperature is staying high for long time.
But, usually when under treatment, the temperature will come down to normal within few hours.
You can also do tepid sponging to bring it down as suggested before.
Is there anything else that I can help you with?
