Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear Nupur,
I am really concerned that your child is suffering from illness.
From the symptoms it looks like your daughter is suffering from viral fever. But an evaluation by a pediatrician is advisable before taking medications. Taking medications based on online advice is not advisable.
Till then you can continue giving crocin every sixth hourly to reduce fever. Give as much fluids as possible in the form of tender coconut water, butter milk with salt, lassi, rice porridge. You can give ORS available as electral packets. Dissolve it in one liter of water and give 100ml per loose stool.
If the child is not passing urine frequently (atleast three times a day), vomiting frequently, drowsy then show it to doctor immediately.
Don't worry she will be alright. Just consult a doctor in person before taking medications. Take care.
