Pediatrician 's  Response
Thanks for your query.
Your child had respiratory infection with febrile seizures.
Continue with medication as advised.
I suggest you to give oral paracetamol syrup if fever is above 100 F every 6 to 8 hourly.
In case fever is not getting controlled you can give meftal syrup 12 hourly.
Give plenty of fluids to maintain hydration.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless.
