you should be happy that the fever is controlled. Relax and do not panic for lower body temperature. There is no such medication to increase body temperature. try covering up your child with warm clothes/ Blanket, the temperature will normalize. you can keep the room temperature slightly on higher side, using some heating elements like room heaters etc but DO NOT direct that towards the baby.

Give him meftal only if temp. is more than 102 F. Use P-125 for low grade fever, also do tepid sponging (with lukewarm water). If fever persists for more than 48 hrs then consult your doc for proper clinical and lab evaluation to find out the cause of fever.
