Brief Answer:
Give paracetamol tablet

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
Can understand your concerns.

If child is 10 year of age, Syrup Ibugesic will be of no help.

I think that you should give tablet paracetamol (500 mg) half tablet for fever.

Paracetamol is usually given at dosage of 15 mg per kg in children.

I hope this will help you.
Wishing your child good health.
Take care.
