Hello yana,

Please don't panic. Try to be calm. First, I would like to know your daughter's temperature. Has her fever come down with ibuprofen? Try to do sponging for her.

Any other symptoms like sore throat, ear pain, cough ,breathing difficulty ,fast breathing,crying while passing urine etc ?

I would say better than promethazine, get DOMSTAL syrup 3.5 ml three times a day for 1 day half an hour before food intake.This might help to relieve the nausea. Try to make her drink more liquids like warm water and fruit juices and rice gruel. If the fever and nausea doesn't get better in two days ,please take her to the paediatrician.

Hope this helps. Kindly get back to me for any further queries.

Have a nice day.

welcome to health care magic
first of all donot give any medicines without doctor 's advice.only 50 mg dose is recommended in case of ibuprofen.
Establishing the exact disease and its cause, and deciding the right line of treatment is very important. It determines the recovery.

Investigations that you need to do:
Widal test ( for typhoid)
SGOT, SGPT, serum bilirubin (for jaundice, which may, most commonly be due to a hepatitis virus.)

These 2 are your probable diagnosis, or it might just be a case of indisposition due to a viral infection.
please visit best pediatrics near you .
give her more n more coconut water to wash out toxins.
take care
