Doctors prescribe cefixime, paracetamol and domperidom antibiotics for 5 days. On day 4 of my doctor’s medication consumption I did not give paracetamol because his body temperature was normal in the morning and afternoon, but last night I measured my child’s body temperature to 35.8 ° C, is that normal?
