Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Your baby is having fever which mostly is viral in nature and settles in few days.
Crocin is a safe medicine and can be given 4 to 6 hourly if temperature is above 100F.
I suggest you to monitor temperature every 6 hourly.
Give her plenty of fluids.
Do tepid sponging in case of high fever.

In case symptoms persist get her evaluated by pediatrician.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless,,
