Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Combiflam contains a combination of ibuprofen and paracetamol, because of the ibuprofen aspect of it-you need to make sure that your son takes it on a full stomach.This will reduce the risk of it irritating his stomach.
The dosage that you are giving is appropiate.
Other modalities to reduce fever would be tepid sponging and fan therapy.

I hope this helps and that he feels better soon

For 17 kg 7.5 ml of combiflam syrup is sufficient dose. 100 F temperature is mild fever, beside giving combiflam syp you can do tepid sponging for decreasing the temperature. give combiflam syp 6 hourly for initial two days and after that only when required. Temp will come down as disease will get controlled by antibiotic. Give plenty of water to maintain hydration.
With regards
