6yr old been diagnosed with mumps. she had a high fever of 39.2 which does not want to go down with panado . what panado and ponstan regimen can be used?
Thank you for your question.
Sometimes a very high fever is experienced by children who have mumps and for that in addition to panadol given every 6 hourly you can also give something like ibuprofen every 8 hourly.
This will most likely help with the fever.
If it does not help then you can try cold sponging with light clothing.
Hope this helps.
