thanks for your quiry
its good to see that you do consult a list of drugs which are prohibited in this disease
this disease will not cause any problem untill you administer those drugs
is your child diabetic?
do take care and have adequate measues to protect him from mosquitoes
safer option is paracetamol in lower dose
