Hi,

Thanks for writing here.

Fever is a general symptom associated with many pathogenic infection and inflammatory condition. It is essential to treat the causes to make sure you have a complete recovery.

You mentioned that you are suffering from fever. This information is not sufficient to suspect any cause. Therefore please provide the following information:
1. The duration and progress (improving or worsening) of fever
2. Presence or absence of associated symptoms - headache, body ache, nausea, vomiting, nasal congestion, sore throat, cough, increased urination, burning sensation while passing urine, body rashes, abdominal pain, loose stools, etc.
3. The age of this patient and if the age is under 14 years, please specify the weight of the child.
4. Presence or absence of other medical illness in the past

In the interim, you can try 'paracetamol' in the dose of 10-15 mg/kg body weight (for adults - 500mg) repeated at 4-6 hours interval. Paracetamol (crocin/calpol) is available as tablets or oral syrup over the counter in India. Sponging the forehead, underarms, torso and limbs with XXXXXXX warm water will give added benefits.

Hope this helps. I will be available for further discussion based on your reply.

Best Regards

P.S: The reports attached seems not relevant to the current illness. Please attach any other medical reports that you have.

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.

I accidentally gave my 8 month old ibuprofen two hours early. She is 17 lbs and I gave her 1.25 ml only four hours a part instead of 6. She has an ear infection and RSV and I thought I was giving her Tylenol the second time but instead gave her two doses of ibprofen. She fell asleep. Should I be worried?
