High fever, cold and running nose. On dolo, meftal. Help

Hi My son is 21 months old, weight 9.5 Kgs. He is running with high fever , cold and running nose from yesterday. We are giving him below medicines 1. Meftal-P (2.5 ml) when fever above 101.5 , else crocin 1 ml with a gap of 5 hours between any two doses. 2. T-minic (1 ml) every eight hours. 3. Tuspel (2 ml) every eight hours. Is it the right dose? My specific query is that a doctor suggests that with Meftal we should give him Dolo (4 ml) not crocin. Regards, Abhishek

Hi Abhishek,
Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions. Yes, doses are fine. Will recommend you to continue your crocin as dolo contains nimesulide which is not recommended in kids.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. Thanks
