Brief Answer: Safe dose Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX Do not worry. From your query the fever and runny nose seem to be due to a viral infection. Body tries to eliminate virus from the body by increasing temperature. A viral usually takes 5 to 10 days to get better. Till the time virus is cleared from the body, fever will show up. Your physician has given the right dose. My advice would be: - continue meftal 3 ml every 8 hours along with crocin syrup 5ml every 4 hours. It needs to be given as long the kid has fever. - Continue other medicines as prescribed by him. The medicines meant for cold are to be given only if the kid has symptoms of cold like runny nose, sneezing etc. - Give her plenty of liquids to drink. Wishing your kid speedy recovery.
