Thank you for the query.

I have read your query and from that I first want to inform you that fever has nothing to do with constipation but there will be some raised body temperature in constipated children.

Azithral will show its effect in 30 minutes but it will not treat fever but it will treat the cause of fever like infections.

Calpal syrup as it is used for fever temperature is getting down when you are giving it and after its action fever is coming back again.

I advice to have an xray abdomen for your baby.

In my opinion there must be infection which is causing these problems.Wait until you complete the dose of azithral and if symptoms persists you can take your baby once again to your doctor.

Please pay attention on food you are giving to your baby.

Hope I have answered all your queries.

Feel free to ask followup questions.
Wish you a good health.

Yes, azithral is used to treat the infections if present. Regarding the X-Ray, I have mentioned it is necessary if the symptoms persist even after treatment and if we see any changes during physical examination. I personally advice X-Ray to rule out the abnormalities, if present. You need to know about the diet, as it is the main culprit for constipation in children. I advise you to give high fiber diet. Give your baby plenty of water, vegetables and fruits. Avoid cow's milk if you are giving which will lead to constipation. Follow the instructions given by your doctor along with a good diet, which will help your baby a lot.
Hope this answer will be helpful to you.
