Brief Answer:
Paracetamol Can be repeated on 4 hourly basis

Detailed Answer:
Hi Dear
Welcome to the HCM,
Crocin /paracetamol can be repeated every four hourly basis. Provided if it is given with adequate doses.
Doses of Paracetamol to be effective only when given approximately @15 mg per kg.
5 ml of crocin is too less to be effective.
Tap water sponging regularly helps a lot in reducing the fever.
Maintain adequate hydration by giving plenty of fluids.
Take cafe of the nutrition also.
Do not over cover her.
Hope the query is answered.
Please feel free for the further clarification.
Thanks
