Brief Answer:
Diazepam is usually given for seizure prophylaxis.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM

I have gone through your query. Diazepam is usually given for seizure prophylaxis. You can ask your doctor for prescription of this and keep for the time when he is having fever.
Crocin Ds is paracetamol syrup and meftal p is mefenamic acid and paracetamol combination. Meftal p will be better to control his fever and no need to give crocin Ds if giving meftal p. Other option is keeping paracetamol suppository which will decrease fever faster.

Azee is antibiotic azithromycin. If he is having bacterial infection then it can be given 1 time daily according to your doctor's advise. It has no direct effect in decreasing fever but by eradicating infection there is an indirect role.
As the fever come down there is nothing to worry. Give him more fluids as he will be having fluid loss during high fever. You can give lemon tea , soups etc also.

Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
Thanks.

Yes you can give meftal p

Detailed Answer:
Welcome again.

Thank you for your follow up query.

You can give meftal p. Meftal shouldn't be given in viral fevers having low platelet count as in that case it can make the condition worse. Buy and keep paracetamol suppositories. This will help to decrease the fever faster.
