Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have a toddler of 16 months. He suffers from high temperature, which leads to convulsions most time. He has taken a lot of medicines and antibiotics to bring it down and was also treated for sepsis two months back. What could be the reason?

Kindly help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

I understand your concern. Check the child's temperature with a thermometer when you feel a fever. If the temperature is 100 degrees Fahrenheit or more, you can give syrup Crocin DS 240 mg/ml dose as per the child's weight every four hours. If the temperature is 102 degrees Fahrenheit or more, you can give syrup Ibugesic Plus every six hours. However, suppose the temperature stays above 100 degrees Fahrenheit for more than three days or crosses 103 degrees Fahrenheit. In that case, it is advisable to consult a pediatrician with possible blood investigations based on physical examination. For febrile convulsions, take a Frisium (Clobazam) tablet (dose as per the child's weight) twice a day when the child has a fever for at least three days to prevent febrile convulsions.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
