hello Dr.. GM
Hello Good morning
my son who is 18 months old has had temp of 100, yesterday night around 10:30..
we gave him 5mL of fapanil-125.. slowly it got controlled..
but the temp has slowly increased to 100.9 today early morning around 5:30..
since then onwards we are sponging him and gave him another dose of fanapil
now body is getting little cool and again getting little heat..
how stop this dr.
Does he have any other symptoms?
Cold or cough?
we did not notice it clearly, when crying very slight change in voice,
no vomiting, but two days back he was passing greenish color loose stools, but that has controlled with Z&D drops..
now we stopped it.
still we are sponging him.. again same body is getting little cool and slightly getting heat..
yes around 10:30,
yesterday up to 2 am he was playing with me and that time he was completely normal..
no he is breathing well through his nose..
I suggest you give fepanil when he has fever more than 100
you can give 8th hourly
wait for until tomorrow
ya dr, we are following the same.. but what to do when he temp is more than 100 before another dose has to be given..
If he will not feel better after 24 hours then visit a pediatrician to start new medication or antibiotics
few months back he had fever, at that moment in the hospital itself he had mild seizure attack, at that time his temp was 105, and got hospitalized for one day..
fever upto 100 is normal
and what about diet dr?
If he is having continuous fever more than 100 for next 24 hours then go to doctor
Give him more fluids
can we give fruit juices.. like pomegranate, etc.
yes you can give
Milk you can give
you can give apple juice
But avoid chill foods
ya ok, curd rice and coconut water?
Yes you can give
because we feel that with this he might have cold.
You can give all kind of soft food and fruit but all should be at room temperature
Continue sponging especially armpits,abdomen, groin, fore head,hands and legs
if he develops cold or runny nose, then what med should we give him and when..
and kind of food to be stopped?
Then I suggest you NASLCLEAR nasal saline drops.instil 2 drops in each nostril as many as times like 4-6 times a day and also give him steam inhalation
how to give steam inhalation?
Whatever child eats you can give that food but avoid out side food like biscuits cakes,
can we given corn flakes with milk, because daily we are giving in the morning whenever he wakes up
Do you have any steam equipment or box at home?
You can give cornflex
You can get steam inhalation box at your local pharamcy
Or you can us bowl steam
You should give with plain water
Are you there?
