Hello Mrs. Henzawary! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Fever is a reaction that often occurs after administration of the vaccine. This reaction is not dangerous. Amoxicillin is not a fever-lowering, but an antibiotic that only needs to be given if a bacterial infection occurs. Inappropriate use of amoxicillin can actually be dangerous for your child. Amoxicillin should only be given by doctors, even midwives should not give amoxicillin, especially to children. To reduce fever, you only need to give paracetamol. If paracetamol does not reduce your child's fever, you need to pay attention to whether the dosage you have given is in accordance with the doctor's recommendations or what is on the package. Paracetamol dose in children follows the child's weight. The measuring spoon you use should be the medicine spoon available on the medicine packaging or use another measuring container that you can pay attention to the milliliter, not the family spoon, like a tablespoon or teaspoon. Paracetamol which is not suitable for dosage can cause the fever that does not go down. You can also warmly compress the folds on your child, such as underarms and groin. Give your child a drink more. Your child's fever can not go down if he is still dehydrated. See if your child still pees as much and as often as usual. Give also eat as usual. Mother can provide small amounts of food but often when her appetite decreases. If your child continues to have a fever, you should take your child to the doctor for examination. To find out if your child needs to be immunized again, it is necessary to first look at your child's immunization record beforehand. You can also consult this during a visit to the doctor. The doctor will see in advance whether your child's basic immunization is complete or not. If not, the doctor will explain what other immunizations your child needs to take to avoid dangerous diseases.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
