Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic.
Crocin is given as 15 mg/kg body weight as often as 4th hourly without any harm.
Usually 3-4 times daily will do along with tepid sponging.
If the fever is not subsiding within 2-3 days better to consult doctor.
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Please feel free to ask any more queries if required
Take care
