User rating for this question
Hi, My 7 month old kid is having fever from yesterday and he has chest congestion. He usually poops once per day but today he pooped 3 times after having food. We gave him paracetamol drops(Feva Go). Now his moods seems to be upset.. His stool doesnt seem abnormal.. Its normal yellowish only thing he abnormal is he has pooped 3 times today after having cerelac with milk... He is drinking breast milk normally and also no problem in eating but he is not as happy as he looks always... he has mild fever too.. Kindly suggest what we should do?

Brief Answer: Consult your pediatrician Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query on HealthCareMagic. Many diseases in infants have common presentation. Fever and vomiting are the two main symptoms your kid is suffering from. Lethargy is also suggested since your kid is not looking as happy as before as you have suggested. Normal consistency, normal color and normal frequency of stools rules out any gastrointestinal tract upset. Paracetamol syrup will control the fever, however, you need to consult your pediatrician for clinical examination of the baby. Infections of respiratory tract or any other site can present in similar way. All these possibilities have to be ruled out by appropriate investigations. If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer. Dr Shailja P Wahal
