So I am giving him paracetamol alternatively with meftal as prescribed by pediatrician. I gave him Crocin at 3:30 then meftal p at 6:30 due to 102.7 fever and now even after 2 hrs his fever remains same at 102.5.i have done sponging also. Pls suggest what can be done to lower the temperature?Paracetamol isn't helping much.
