Thank you for your query,
The dose of zentel is 10ml in a child of 2 years and one month old child.
Fever may be due a virus.
For fever you can give paracetamol suspension in prescribed dosage.
If fever is high give tepid sponging with lukewarm water.
Try to give plenty of oral fluids, juices and ORS.
Consult your Pediatrician for the examination to look for the focus of infection and treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.

Pediatrician Dr. Synthyia Bhagat's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Your child is having fever which is mostly viral in nature and takes few days to settle.
Give acetaminophen as per dose 15 mg/kg 6 hourly.
Do sponging with tepid water.
Give plenty of fluids,fruit juices,vegetable soup and milk.
Do not force him to eat,his appetite will come back slowly.

In case symptoms persist get him evaluated by pediatrician for further management.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
