My daughter is 5 years old suffering from fever from last two days. We are giving Calpol 250 mg 8 ml dose for every four hours. After giving Calpol, temperature comes down. But immediately temperature is increasing. Today our doctor suggested having Monocef antibiotic. We have given two dosages til now. Is there anything to worry because fever is coming continuously. Please suggest.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Generally, fever lasts for 2 to 3 days. If it is viral and more if it is bacterial, since you have started antibiotic it takes 24 to 48 hours for the antibiotic to control infection. So, fever may be there but the intensity will decrease gradually over 2 to 3 days. If the fever does not subside in 2 to 3 days of starting antibiotic I suggest you go for further evaluation like blood tests. Nothing to be worried about.
