Dear XXXXXXX You can repeat paracetamol 250 mg 3 to 4 times daily or the fever.
On top of it tepid sponge her and give plenty of fluid for hydration. The antibiotic
azithromycin can be given according to her weight after consultation with the doctor.
I think it will be okay.
Please let me know if you got any queries.
Kindest regards
Dr S.K.Mukherjee
