Fever, Dizziness, Runny Nose With Swelling In The Eyes?
Afternoon … My child is 10 years old. Last night the body was warm and complained of dizziness then I gave bodrexin according to the dose. But then after a while his eyes were swollen side by side like an allergy but then he slept. The next morning I saw the swelling was reduced but there were a few bumps on the face and the nose was rather red. Later in the afternoon the eye next to it is a bit swollen and it’s just not too big like last night. Until this afternoon his body was still rather hot and the cold was also red and the bumps on his face were still there. His head is also dizzy. Now I compress with warm water. May I give Paracetamol sanmol? Is this a sign of the flu or what … thanks for the input … Greetings
