How to manage my toddler's fever?
Hello, my 2-year-old toddler is suffering from fever and runny nose. He is not allergic to any medication. His body weight is normal, approximately 38 lb. Any treatment has not been started yet. I would like to know which treatment would be good at this time. Due to this pandemic situation I am unable to reach out any doctor. Please help.
@minu He can be started with acetaminophen at a dose of 15 mg/kg and you can be instructed to follow the package directions. According to his weight and age, he would receive 250 mg of acetaminophen every 4 to 6 hours. If fever persists for more than 3 days, he should be taken to a physician.
