Thanks for writing to us.
Kindly check the temperature of the baby. If the tempr is more than 101 deg F, you must start Tepid Sponging. Tylenol
will definitely help. But the body temperature dissipates by Conduction/Convection/Evaporation and Radiation
. ie best achieved by Hydrotherapy/Tepid Sponging.
As per standard teaching, an infection not responding to empirical treatment for 48 hours needs to be investigated.
Kindly get the routine blood counts/urinalysis/Chest X-ray/Sputum analysis done.
A Suitable Antibiotic/Vitamin Supplimentation/Adequate fluids/Decongestant Nasal Drops and Nutritious Diet/Adequate Bed rest
will definitely cure your son's infection.
As the above treament is a general guideline only, please consult your MD for the specific treatment at the earliest to institute specific treatment as per the age and anthropometric data of your child.
Wishing your son a speedy recovery.,
Dr Lt Cdr ASN Bhushan.,
