Babies Drink Paracetamol Before Or After Drinking Milk?
Good morning My child does not drink breast milk. Thank you 😊
Hello Evi, thanks for asking.
You should provide additional information, after the DPT immunization your child then has a fever? DPT immunization often causes a fever reaction in children. Fever can last a day or several days and is generally mild. But not all children have a fever after DPT immunization. Some health practitioners do recommend taking paracetamol as a form of prevention to prevent fever. However, some other practitioners recommend that paracetamol only be taken when the child really has a fever. Prevention can be done by giving children enough drink.
If your child has a fever, then paracetamol can be given according to the recommended dosage of 10-15 mg / kg child. Paracetamol can be given 3-4 times a day. Try not to exceed 4 times the gift for children under 6 months. Paracetamol can be given before and after eating (in this case drinking milk). Be aware of drug interactions if you give several kinds of drugs together. Drug interactions can be in the form of an increase in the effect of a drug, decrease the effect of a drug, or the effect of toxicity. If after giving paracetamol allergic symptoms such as red rashes, hives, children crying and fussing, then immediately stop giving drugs and take the child to the doctor. But the mother does not need to worry too much because generally paracetamol is quite safe.
Thus the information from me, hopefully helps. Regards.
