Infant taking crocin and meftal for fever. What is the right dosage of meftal?

Hi My son is running fever since last night. I gave him Crocin DS twice over 4 hour interval but it did not bring down the fever. After that I gave him 3ml Meftal-P. His age is 1yr 7 month and he is 10 Kg. What is the correct dosage of Meftal-P / Kg and how often should it be given? Is there anything else i should do?
