What causes loss of appetite in a child? - Online Doctor Chats
My Son (1.6 Years) is filling irritated. He is not eating properly since yesterday and seems a little warm.
Hi. Thanks Doctor..
I am travelling out of XXXXXXX and my son is in XXXXXXX He is feeling irritated..
he seems to be little warm
please suggest what we should do. if this is ok or should we give him something else..
is there any other symptom other than mild fever?
rest all is good..
It sounds like viral fever
Meftal P is not the ideal medicine in such cases where there is no pain
such as calpol
you will need to give 15 mg/kg body weight for it to be effective
what is the current weight of your son?
around 12 kg..
Yes, crocin also contains only paracetamol
12 kgs would require 180 mg per dose
so please suggest what all medicines we can give him..
You can give 3.5ml of crocin 250
Other than this right now you do not need to give him anything else
do we need to give any antibiotic also?
You will need to wait for 3 days and see how it goes
Viral fevers can not be cured with antibiotics
so there is no point in giving an antibiotic
ok.. so we will give him crocin now after 5-6 hours.. as we had given meftal p soetime back
is that ok..
You can give him the crocin every 6 hours once
so it is okay
Give me a moment
You can give crocin syrup for 3 days and see
if the fever does not come down, then you will have to get some basic blood tests done to find out the exact cause for the fever
ok.. we will do this.. may be this is coz of winters in XXXXXXX .
Right.. Thanks a lot for your help..
is there anything else I can help you with?
You are welcome
No. Thank you very much..
You are most welcome
thanks for using the service
have a good sunday ahead
