Hi...you can give Paracetamol at the dose of 15 milligrams per kg per dose every 4 or 6th hourly. This to you can give only when there is fever above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. I suggest that you give Paracetamol as an isolated medicine without any other combination.

It is not about how long you should give Crocin or Paracetamol. You should give it only when there is fever and avoid when there is no fever or temperature is less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

An 8 month old baby developing blood in the stool could be because of bacterial dysentery or it could also be because of cows milk protein intolerance, if you have started any cows Milk products recently.
