My baby 2.4 years old and is suffering from cold and cough since last 1 week. Initial days we did not go to doctor we have given Sinarest AF and syp : Ventyl .

Last two days back we met with doctor and he said there is some throat infection affected and he started an ANTI BIOTIC AZILIDE (0-0-1 for 3 days.)

But since yesterday after noon we found that her temperature is high and we gave Dolopar 250. 3 times yesterday. But yesterday night also the temp was high. Today morning temperature came down. But she is not active today and Now we feel some temperature is there.

Could you suggest something in this situation.

Brief Answer:
mostly viral fever

Detailed Answer:

Mostly tis is viral fever. It will take some time to become normal - say 2-3 days.
The child is on antibiotics already which is OK.
For fever you can give dolopar every 6 hrs - calculate 10 mg per kg weight per dose.
Give her plenty of fluids,juices,liquids and watch.
If she is alright,active in between febrile periods ,you need not worry.
Sinarest can make her drowsy.
Vntyl is not needed if there is no fever.
If she does not improve in 2 days,go to your pediatrician again for evaluation.
Good luck
God bless
