What is the treatment for fever with clod and cough? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help?
m wnt padetictric
I am a general physician
coz my son was not well from past 5 day
I can help you within my capacity
Please go ahead
with your query
What symptoms does your son has?
I have been giving him crocin for fever, fexy for cold and cheston for cough
Is his symptoms getting better?
after five days also he still has fever
Fever will stay as long as there is virus in blood
fever goes of after three hours from giving medications and comes back again
still has cough n cold waht u suggest.
he wnts always to sleep
I need to know more details to be able to assess his condition
How often are you giving him the medicines?
every 6 hrs one dose o corcin syrup of 6 ml
fexy two times a day and cheston 3 times a day
Are you giving him all three medicines?
he is not eating well and is difficult to wake up
How is his runny nose?
cough is severe with mucus and vomits with cough
he has stuffy nose
My recommendations are as follows:
Give him crocin if fever is present
Either give him fexy or cheston
Both contain medicines from same group-antiallergic
Both fexy and cheston can cause sleepiness
Also give it only before sleeping
Do not give it during day
I prefer cheston
Let the immunity of the kid bring down the infection
crocin we already finished giving him two to three bottles
can we give something else than crocin
For daytime give him ayurvedic preparation like sualin or joshina
1 to 2 tablets of sualin upto 4 times a day
One more question
Does he have difficulty breathing?
no he doesnt
So he does not need inhalers
he is fine only coughs severely
I think in a day or two he will recover
Yes cough does happen in congested chest
It will get better once immunity fights the infection
cn v increase dose of crocin as presntly we are giving 6ml of 240mg at a time
can u suggest some medications to improve his immunity
Dose depends on his age
What is his ge?
he is 5years and 4 months
To improve immunity you can try dabur chyawanprash or XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Ayurveda's XXXXXXX drops
No you cannot increase the dose of crocin
so u feel v to continue vth crocin as present
Give him warm liquids to drink
Crocin needs to be taken only if fever is present
he has fever of 101F
Its only function is to bring down fever
Is the fever despite crocin?
If the infection does not get better in 3 days
then need to get throat swab done
It is a test in which bacterial infection of throat can be figured out
fever goes off ater 3 hrs of medictions
Yes I understand
He will get better
some viruses just stay a little longer
Give him healthy and nutritious diet
any restriction on food
Avoid cold foods
Spicy foods work for people
fruits are good
so v vl continue vth corcin at moment
Cheston and fexy help control runny nose
Since he does not have runny nose
For cough cheston can be taken at night
sualin is for cough r cold
It is like cough lozenges
It soothens the throat and bring out mucus
Hope it helps
Thanks for consulting
