Brief Answer: Continue crocin Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX   Do not worry.   From your query the fever seems to be due to a viral infection. Body tries to eliminate virus from the body by increasing temperature. A viral usually takes 5 to 10 days to get better. Till the time virus is cleared from the body, fever will show up. Mild headache stomach ache is possible in viral fever. You can continue crocin 8ml till fever subsides. Make sure there is minimum 4 hours gap between doses. Ensure your kid takes plenty of liquids. Wishing your kid speedy recovery. Regards Dr Arun

I forgot to add that she has also developed a mild nasal congestion for which i gave her 4ml of NS solution via a nebuliser.. at about 5pm today.. should i continue the nebulisation if yes at what frequency ..I also have a steam (vaporiser) at home since we stay in Hyderabad the weather is cold and Dry..Please suggest nebulisation or Steam Vaporizer. Should i give her crocin 4 times a day or As and when required

Brief Answer: Nebulisation is better Detailed Answer: Nebulisation is better . Give her only if she is troubled by cold. 3 to 6 times a day as required. Give crocin only if there is fever. You can skip crocin if there is no fever . Dr Arun
