Thank you for your query.

You are taking the right steps to bring down your daughter's temperature. As you have not mentioned the age and weight and the dose of P125 drops it is not possible to comment whether the dose is adequate or not. You can wait for 24 hours unless some new symptoms develop you consult your doctor.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
