Suggest remedies for high fever and sticky green stools in a baby

my 1.5 month old baby is having fever now with temperature 38.5 degrees taken from the ear and have been passing sticky green stool, looking rather tired and sleepy mostly today, hardly crying. I have gave him his first dose of baby panadol an hour ago. How long should i wait for if his temperature doesn t come down to see a doctor. Is it serious?

Dear parent, if your child is sleepy and hardly crying then these are signs of dehydration . dehydration due to diarrhea could be serious. you need to give him oral rehydration solution as soon as possible 5 tea spoons for every pound of his weight with every motion of diarrhea . also make sure the child drinks adequate amounts of fluids or milk. to stop diarrhea give an over the counter antidiarrheal syrup. for fever , you can use panadol or ibuprofen syrup every 6 hours
