Thanks for writing to health care magic.
The best medication for fever in kids is always paracetamol
. The dosage we normally prescribe is 15 mg per kg per dose.
Normally fever comes down with paracetamol and nothing else is required.
If the fever does not come down then ibuprofen
may be given.
Just monitor you kid for any danger signs like lethargy, poor feeding, vomiting
, seizures etc.
A simple cough caused by upper respiratory tract
infection etc may not require any treatment as most of them are viral in origin.
Just monitor for increased respiratory rate
, chest retractions etc and report to the doctor as required.
Hope this helps.
