Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I suggest you to use paracetamol instead of ibuprofen when ever your kid has got fever.

It is safer when compared to ibuprofen.

There are certain danger signs if associated with fever you should take him to the hospital immediately.

They are poor feeding, vomiting, lethargy and seizures.

Does your kid have any other problems?
Is there any burning urination or frequency of urination? Does he complain of sore throat?

Please reply in detail.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
