My 2 years old child got a low grade fever two days ago and I gave him Calpol Paracetamol but 250 mg/5 ml. I gave him 4 ml and he just took the medication twice and then the fever is gone but I notice a patch of rash itchy that started in his knees and now there are patches of rashes in many parts of his body and it irritates him and it is itchy also. What he eats prior is fish very little, tinola, dalandan and by the way, I am also breastfeeding him until now. Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Has the fever subsided now? Had the rash appeared when the child had a fever?
Fever with rash can be a viral exanthem that resolves spontaneously and only symptomatic treatment for fever and itching is required. If the rash appeared two days after the fever had subsided then it might not always be a part of viral infection. It can instead be a result of an allergic reaction either to the drug Paracetamol, insect bite, and food allergy. In medical terms, it is called urticaria (itchy rash).
Is there any past history of similar complaints? Is there any family history of atopy or asthma?
You can give tablet Desloratadine 2.5 mg half tablet once a day for five days and Lactocalamine lotion for local application.
I hope this helps.
