Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
I understand your concern, what if your child has a fever. fever is defined when the child's body temperature is more than 37.2 degrees Celsius when measured from the armpits, exceeds 37.8 degrees Celsius when measured from the mouth, or above 38 degrees Celsius when measured from the rectum.
the drug you mentioned contains metamizol, a drug that works to reduce pain and reduce heat. You should not give this drug without the doctor's direct examination, you can give other medications such as paracetamol in accordance with the dosage on the packaging and if your child's fever does not go down for 3 days then bring it directly to the doctor for proper treatment according to the cause.
There are several things you can do at home:
Give children plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration. Do warm compresses on the forehead and between the armpits and thighs. You can give paracetamol syrup to reduce fever according to the dosage listed on the package. If the fever does not go down for 3 days, do not hesitate to immediately see a doctor children try the room does not feel hot always make sure the child's body temperature, if the fever is very high and there are seizures immediately bring the nearest emergency room so the info I can give
hopefully can help you
