Suggest medication for swollen palms followed by fever
Dear Dr, My 5yr old boy has swollen palms along with severe itching from yesterday. The doctor says it could be an insect bite. There is a slight fever today and the swelling has also increased. what may be the cause? and what medication can be given?
HI Thank for asking to HCM I really appreciate your concern and looking to the history given here I could say that if this is the insect bite then this need to be treated with Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen if needed then antibiotic can be added but this depends upon the further clinical condition, and nothing to worry about this, take care and have a nice day.
