Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi Bhupendra Sharma,
I am really concerned that your child is suffering from fever.
Fever medications reduce fever only for four to six hours and fever usually recurs again, hence it needs to be repeated 4-6th hourly once. Antibiotics take atleast 48hours for response to occur. Hence it is always better to wait for atleast two days of antibiotics provided child is taking some amount of food and adequate quantities of water.
Fever can be due to virus(Dengue), bacteria(typhoid, urinary infection), malaria. If fever doesn't subside even after 48 hours of antibiotics, he needs blood tests, urine tests to know the cause of fever and treat accordingly.
He might need immediate admisssion if he has increasing pain abdomen, vomiting multiple episodes, seizures, drowsiness.
Don't worry he will recover well. Keep him hydrating well. Take care.
