good morning, the safest and easiest way to reduce a high grade temperature is to sponge the childs body from head to toe with warm water for nerly 5 to 10 min , 5 to 6 times a day. this is called tepid sponging. other medicines include syp meftal-p around 6.5 ml for ur daughters age. but its always better to get her examined by a doctor and then administer the medications, thank you.
