YOU CAN GIVE PARACETAMOL 230MG EVERY 6TH HOURLY FOR YOUR CHILD, AND TRY DOING TIPID SPONGING AND COLD COMPRESS. IF THE FEVER IS STILL PERSISTING TRY GIVING A RECTAL SUPPOSITORY OF PARACETAMOL COMES AS 170MG.
OBVOIUSLY THE CAUSE OF FEVER HAS TO BE TREATED FOR FEVER TO SUBSIDE COMPLETELY, FIND OUT THE ASSOCIATED SYMPTOMS WITH FEVER, WHETHER THE CHILD HAS COUGH, COLD, VOMITING, DIFFICULTY IN VOIDING, LOOSE STOOLS, HEADACHE AND GET TO CONSULT A LOCAL DOCTOR AND GET TREATED ACCORDINGLY FOR THE CAUSE.
REGARDS.
