Suggest treatment for fever - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help?
my son has fever
his age is 2 years
and yesterday afternoon he caught with fever
since then we are giving Fepanil 250(paracetomol syrup)
becuase of sunday today hospitals are closed
and still fever exist
What other syumptoms does he have?
nothing else just fever
actually two days back , he had four time motion and that was repeated for 3 days
four time motion in a day
It is a little in excess
the stool was solid only and loose
and not loose
Fever may have happened due to loose motions
But we also need to rule out other causes
Since today you do not have excess to medical service
this 4 times is every 6 hours right?
if it is diarrhea no more treatment is required
you may want to rehydrate him with gatorade or ORS-L
it should be given after every motion
actually fever was around 102.4
in the aternoon
Does it go down with paracetamol
feeling bit low temprature but not fully feeling cured
Yes the fever will stay as long as the virus is in the body
Virus takes around 7 - 10 days
and also we are doing sponging
is that fine
It will be helpful
shall we give him XXXXXXX and orange fruits?
is that good at this condition?
Yes you can
But do not give juices or lots of milk
Do you have any question?
so what do you think this fever is caused becuase of the excess motion?
It seems to be
Since that is the only other symptoms he is having
But it can be other things too like too hot weather, urine infection, ear infection
The doctor will be able to rule these out with examination and tests
Thanks for consulting
