Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My daughter is 17 years old. She has cold allergies and at the time of cold, she gets a fever and she gets weak and after taking some of the medicine, her fingers start to vibrate. So what kind of medicine should I give?

Answered by Dr. Aditi Gupta


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Colds and fever is a viral illness that follows seasonal change usually. For fever Paracetamol 1000 mg thrice a day should be given after food only if there is fever and for colds, she can take Chlorpheniramine maleate or Dcold. Take care that Dcold has Paracetamol and hence if she is taking Dcold tablet, then she needs to adjust the dose of Paracetamol to 500 mg thrice a day only because Dcold has 500 mg Paracetamol already. Also, give her steam inhalation preferably with sterile water. And to avoid such prolonged illness, Vitamin C must be consumed, either in fruits like oranges, or fresh lemon drinks or tomatoes or she needs to take Vitamin C tablets daily to boost immunity and fight infection naturally. Take care.
