Temperature of baby reduced to 35.2 degrees celsius after taking cofen and allerphen. Should the medicines be continued?

Hi Dr Santosh, My 8 month old baby was prescribed Cofen and Allerphen for cough and cold , to be taken 2.5ml each 3x daily. Her body temperature dipped each time after she took the meds. Tonight her thermal earscan reading was 35.2 degrees Celsius. Pls kindly advise why her body reacts in such a way to the drugs and is it potentially dangerous for her to continue with the meds?

Hi dear don't worry, the medicine your giving to your child for cough and cold, contains paracetamol,it is the normal action of paracetamol to decrease the body temperature,your child is reacting slightly more than the accepted way ,but that is also normal,as every body reacts different to same drug,continue the drug,but reduce the dose of cofen.that is all your child need .
