Hi
Thanks for your query.
Your child was having respiratory infection which could be viral or bacterial in nature and takes few days to settle.
As you mentioned that fever is now settled so relax.complete course of antibiotics as advised,give antiallergic like benadryl as per dosage.
Give her plenty of fluids,lukewarm water ,hot soups.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.

Hi,
Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic,
You continue her prescribed medication as per the Pediatrician advise.
At present the temperature is low so dont give paracetamol and cover the child with clothes to provide warmth and check temperature after 10 to 15 minutes.
Observe her activity, oral intake, urine output and if you find any problem consult again your doctor for re-examination and for appropriate management.
Hope I have answered your query.
