1 result(s) of when to consult doctor if child has fever
You can wait for 2 to 3 days and give paracetamol for fever instead of rushing to the doctor. The reason is that even if you get reports done, you won’t get any specific result or information. So waiting for 48 hours and giving paracetamol for fever is safe unless there is an exception.
There are two exceptional cases, where you should immediately consult the doctor:
1. Once you have given the medicine for fever, there is no fever and still the child stays lying on the bed, weak and uncomfortable, then you should immediately go see your child’s doctor.
2. When the child reduces the food and fluid intake to such an extent that his/her urine volume is drastically reduced. Do not take this situation lightly and rush to your child’ doctor.
