Dosage Of Fever-reducing Drugs For Children Aged 6 Years?
good night my pediatrician is 6 years old and his weight is only 13 kg … if I want to give a dose of paracetamol tablets thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion, but sorry we cannot deliver doses through this forum and neither should other online doctor services. This is because delivering a dose without supervision and face to face can potentially lead to misunderstandings, if not for you, can be for other people who also freely access this answer. Not to mention the possibility that it is not the drug that your child really needs, and the fact that different brands can be different dosage preparations so that what we imagine is different from what you have.
Our advice, the most ideal step is to see a doctor. For the first, you don't have to go directly to the pediatrician, but you can go to a general practitioner first at the puskesmas or clinic. If it is for one reason or another you cannot have your child checked by a doctor, it is no problem to do the medication yourself first. If your child cannot swallow pills, it would be better if you buy a syrup-lowering fever. Make sure the medicine you buy is not a hard drug and can be purchased without a doctor's prescription. You can ask the pharmacist if you are not sure about this. Finally, read carefully the rules of use in the packaging. Each drug must include the rules of use on the packaging and you just need to follow it according to your child's condition.
In addition, keep your child away from sick people, limit their activities, avoid cigarette smoke, dust and pollution, meet their nutritional needs by providing vegetables and fruits, compress their foreheads with warm compresses, and if it doesn't heal within 3 days, it means you have to see your child to see a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
