Hi hema;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Fever can be due to viral infection so continue crocin when he has fever.See if there is any other symptom like running nose;sneezing;cough;loose motion;vomiting.Since it is 2 days it will be better to consult a paediatrician for opinion and treatment.

Welcome to HCM.
Dose of CROCIN depends on the weight of your baby.if the wt. is 10 kg then 6 ml is ok.You can give it up to 6 times a day.If your baby need other medication always consult with a PD.

hi hema
welcome to HCM
read your prob, there are many causes of fever at this age most likely eighter due to viral or UTI. so get her blood report like CBC, Ps for Mp, urine analysis. then consult your doc.
in case of children do not do drug trial at home as in children dose depends on their weight, low dose cannot works n high dose has side effect.
