Hi Sunil,
Thank you for your query,
Your child seems to have a Viral illness as there are no other symptoms of infection.
You can give Crocin syrup in prescribed dosage every 6 th hourly depending on the presence of fever and in high fever you can do tepid sponging with lukewarm water after 5 to 10 minutes of giving Crocin.
You can give Meftal-P syrup in prescribed dose.
But consult your Pediatrician for the evaluation of fever and for specific treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.

Hi Sunil
Thanks for your query.
Since your child is having high grade fever ,you can repeat crocin after 4 hours,you can give meftal syrup as per dosage also.
I suggest you to do full body sponging with tepid water and give him plenty of fluids so as to maintain hydration.

Wishing your child speedy recovery.
God bless.
