Brief Answer: Repeat the dosage, Tepid sponging Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. You can repeat the Paracetamol 1.5 ml dose every 5 hours if fever is not subsiding. also give him tepid sponging-- Wipe his body with cloth soaked in water, place a wet cloth on the forehead. If fever do not subside even with the above methods then you may have to take him to his treating doctor, as he will be needing antibiotics. regards,
