In this Blog, learn how to Deal with High Fever in Babies by Simple Home Remedies. Let me share with you my personal experience.
Whenever my daughter has high fever, I am the most scared person on this plant. Several times she has suffered from this problem, especially in changing weathers and raining seasons etc. Every time her symptoms changes and treatment too. Last time when she was around 1 year old, she had a high fever and her ears and tosses where hot red.
On regular basis I was keeping the cold pack on her eras and toss until it’s not gone. But on intervals of every 3 hours her ears and toss start getting hot, as fever again raising. Cold packs/ cold cloth on her head were giving her relief but her era colour changes to reddish and huge swelling comes afterwards.
My child doctor said to give her CROCIN DROPS (1.5 ml) after every 4 hours and repeat the same for 2 days, as Viral Fever takes minimum 3 days to cure.
My daughter fever was around 103 degree Fahrenheit and it was kept on increasing. Therefore doctor advice us to give her MEFTAL-P after every 6 hours (1.5 ml) as per her age. Doctor told us to give only 2 dose of MEFTAL-P to her, as you can’t give more doses to babies, it’s not safe. In case toddlers fever is not reducing, then take her to hospital immediately.
If your baby age is under 3 months and has a fever above 100.4°F, then immediately call your doctor.
NOTE : Before giving the medicine/doses to baby or toddlers, please call your doctor and confirm about how much doses should be given to kid. Because as per the age of child/babies doses are advice or given to them.
