Fever Remedy That Is Safe For Infants Aged 3 Months?
My doctor wants to ask, my child is 3 months hot and I don’t know what medicine is safe for reducing the baby’s heat, and a lot of drugs sold in the market are not branded, what is the best and safest for my baby, thank you doctor
Fever in babies is quite common. Fever sometimes accompanies the infection, but sometimes it doesn't. Of course the fever in the baby is quite worrying for parents, because the risk of febrile seizures arises when the fever is high enough. Over-the-counter heat medications generally contain paracetamol and ibuprofen. Both can be consumed, provided that it is in accordance with the recommended dosage. Pay attention to the dosage listed on the package. In infants and children, the dosage of the drug is based on age or weight. We cannot provide the dosage and brand because we do not conduct a direct examination. Also make sure there are no allergic reactions that arise after taking medication.
Give more drink so that body heat can be discharged through urine and sweat. Compress with plain water or warm water, on the forehead, armpits and groin. If the fever is persistently high after 3 days or more, you should contact a doctor.
Thus my brief explanation. Hope you are helped. Regards.
