Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Your son must be given Crocin suspension at 15 months age.
The dosage at 10.5 kg weight is 6 ml when there is fever and it should not be given more than 4 times in 24 hrs. Tepid sponging must be done can also be done along with medication. Please visit pediatrician if fever does not decrease and child is irritable and restless.

Hope your query is answered.
Do write back if you have any doubts.
