Welcome to HCM,
For symptomatic control of fever Calpol
) is generally sufficient if given 6 hourly.
plus contains Ibuprophen in addition to paracetamol.
When your son is not responding to Calpol syrup alone, he might be requiring antibiotic to control infection.
As both of you are already suffering with infection, your son can get infection from any one or both of you.
In my opinion you shouldn't try to treat him at your own.
Please get him examined by a pediatrician
at your earliest, and give prescribed treatment only.
Thanks for trusting Healthcaremagic and posting your query.
Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.
With good wishes,
Dr.Chandra Shekhar Sharma
