Infant with cough, cold, fever. Should i be concerned? - Online Doctor Chats
Hi, How are you doing?
Hi..i am doin gud....My Son is 1.5 years old
he is having fever
for last 2 days
in the day its ok
little bit of cough
but very less
last night his fever was 104
so we given him paracetamol
Is he feeding well?
Otherwise , he is active right?
Have you noticed any rapid breathing or difficulty in breathing?
breathing looks to be rapid
Faster than before?
sometimes it is
now it is normal
CAn you please count it for me
For a full minute
it looks to be 90-100
Please take your son to the paediatrician
He needs an antibiotic
Its possibly a pneumonia
but he having fever only in night
Next, please continue to feed him as frequently as possible
fever is a response that we have to an infection
it requires an intact immune system to do so
young children do not always have fever
because their immune system is not very strong
even when they are very sick
they will not have fever
Till you take him to the paediatrician
Please keep very warm
cover him from head to toe
and feed him as frequently as possible
these 2 things are crucial
if you start the antibiotic today
he'll be fine in 2-3 daays
