Had crocin before sleeping. Why did she complain of cold? Temperature down?

My Daughter (5.5 Yrs & 16Kgs) got fever yesteday night. We gave 5ml Crocin 240mb Around 1AM and she slept. Today Morning again she was having 101.5F and we gave 5ml around 10AM, after that temprature came down she was playing for some time till 1PM and again she was complaining of cold and looking dull, when checked the temperature it is 102.9F. We gave her sponging with normal water and gave 5ml of crocin at 2PM. It looks like the temperature is come down and currently she is sleeping... Should I see a doctor or wait till tomorrow?

When a small child runs high temperature it is always better to see a doctor instead of trying home remedies. Crocin has an action time of only 4-6 hours and when the causative infection is unattended to, the fever control will still be less. You can give sponging with cold water if the child can tolerate as this helps to reduce the temperature quickly. Also, give plenty of fluids orally if there is no vomiting and, see a doctor as soon as possible. Take care.
