Brief Answer: Yes, Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Yes, you an give a dose (5ml) of Meftal P now. This is better than crocin in treating high fever. Also give Tepid sponging to the baby (Wipe baby's body with cloth soaked in cold water). Do take her to the doctor in the morning for sure. She may be needing antibiotics. Wish you good health.
