Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Do not panic.
This might be a case of viral fever.
It might last for 3-4 days.Please avoid ibugesic plus for fever.
It has more side effects than paracetamol alone.
Give paracetamol syrup every 4hrly if fever occurs.
Sponge the baby with tepid water if fever appears within 4 hrs.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Welcome to HCM

The fever is actually not a disease but a symptom that reflects that some sort of infection is going on inside the body. The ibugesic will control fever for the time of its duration of action but will reoccur after its effects ends.

It is recommended to have a visit to a pediatrician to find out the infectious origin and prescription of effective antibiotic.

Thanks for your query.

Ibugesic plus is a combination of brufen and paracetamol. Brufen is a potent pain-killer. It is not usually prescribed for fever. Paracetamol in this combination is in lower dose than required for fever. I would recommend paracetamol suspension for fever for kids. It is available over the counter at pharmacies. In adequate doses it will be able to control fever. It is given as required or four times daily.

Hope I helped.
