Welcome back to Heathcare Magic Physician's Desk!
At this time there is the brisk change in environment causing spate of viral fevers.
Please avoid syp. of ambrodil because children have poor cough reflex and have difficulty in handling excess of secretions.
Give the child Drops Maxtra-P 6hourly, about 0.4ml at a time.
If still febrile then use addon paracetamol drops.
Improve the clothing, XXXXXXX the child a dress that covers her fully- I mean avoid shorts
Keep the nose free of secretions with help of soft hoisery cloth.

Wish you a great health!

We have just checked fever and it is 101.7 , can we repeat crocin if maxtra p is not thr and can we do cold water strips on forehead .. Last crocin dose was given at 8pm and it is 11.45pm here right now.

Welcome back to Heathcare Magic Physician's Desk!
You can use paracetamol 10mg/kg/dose every 4hourly if required for fever.
When controlled make it 6hourly.
For strip use normal top water, cold water increases problems.
Not only forehead but thighs and abdomen should also be mopped, strip s should be taken off not left on body.
I hope she will get well soon.
Wish your kid a great health!
