Suggest treatment for fatigue and weight loss after fever

2 days back my baby (2 yrs) had fever and we gave her calpol syrup. But still she was having high fever. With consultation with a local doctor we gave her the Amoxylin oral suspension (Fightox) and her fever has gone. But she has gone lean and now became little bit inactive.

Hi,

For fever for 2 days, you have started on antibiotic without blood test. Please don't do that. Get your child properly investigated and start on antibiotics.

Weakness means is she unable to walk or general weakness? Please go to a higher center for subsequent tests to see total counts, HB blood culture and liver function test.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Prasanna Lakshmi, Pediatrician
