Fever In Children Aged 2 Years?
My child is 2 years 1 month, currently has a fever of 38.8. Do you want to use the paracetamol sanmol syrup for the taxi?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Fever is an increase in body temperature of more than 37.5 degrees Celsius which is generally caused by an infection or dehydration process.
Paracetamol is the most common class of medications to reduce heat and reduce pain. The dose of paracetamol for children is according to the weight of each child, which is 10 to 15 milligrams per kilogram of body weight for each child and can be given up to every 4-6 hours if the child still has a fever.
As an example:
If your child's body weight is 10kg, then the dose of paracetamol that can be given is 10 × 10 = 100mg to 10x15 = 150mg
The hiss needs to be adjusted according to the preparation of each drug where the dose per spoonful measure is different. For this information, you can read on the drug packaging and the rules of use of the stamp on the drug packaging.
If the fever does not improve, you should take your child to a pediatrician to be directly examined by a doctor
Some things that can help:
Increase fluid intake
Apply a warm compress to the forehead, armpits, neck and fold if the child has a fever
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
