Dear Mrs Nithya
Welcome to HCM
Greetings for day.
It is adisable to give only Paracetamol for fever, it is not advisable to add Ibuprofen and mefenamic acid. As the child i still running temperature it could be due to bacteria resistant to antibiotic, so its time to visit Pediatrician and change the antibiotic and evaluate the baby.
