Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concerns.

  • Fever with rash, vomiting and swelling of lips can occur in dengue fever and measles.
  • I think that you should do complete blood count, CRP levels (C-reactive protein) and NS1 Antigen test (dengue).
  • The child should be immediately examined by a pediatrician.

Hi doctor,

I have consulted her pediatrician here. He is telling that the reason for fever and other things may be infection. He prescribed Febrex plus, Aptivate syrup, Nutrolin-B, Omnatax-O. May I know whether these are the right medicines? My baby did not feel to eat and when she did eat something immediately she vomited. What to do?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • The medicines given to your child are meant for bacterial infection. In children, acute gastroenteritis and food poisoning can also cause fever and vomiting, but there will be no rash.
  • The fact that the child has rash and swelling of lips complicates the issue.
  • We should rule out dengue and measles as in other infection rash and lip swelling is not much common.
  • I think that you should do complete blood count, CRP levels and NS1 antigen test.
  • It would be better, if you send some pictures of rash as it will help for making diagnosis of disease. I advise you to review with the above reports and some pictures of rash. Till then continue the same drugs.
