My dear son is down with fever... AGAIN! Like in a span of 1 month.
How longs does fever usually last??? I've already brought him to the pediatrician and he said it lasts around 3-5 days. Each time I measure his temperature I feel very sian when it hasn't drop.
The last round his fever lasted 3 days. This round the fever is more mild but it has already been 3 days.
Both fevers were due to throat infection.
Mummies, what are your experiences??
Thanks Fioncess mummy.... Ya.. Won't be online also the next few days... Sigh...
did you give him medi for the past 3 days? if yes, but his fever still not subside, better bring him to his pediatrician..
Usually viral fever last for 3-7 days. If after 7 days w/o decreasing temperature, time to go to the doc.
Take care mummy!
Thanks regina and autumn mummy.
Yes I've been giving him paracetamol every 6 hours for his fever over the last 2.5 days. He's also on another round of antibiotics. Both medication were prescribed by the pediatrician.
Ok. Will monitor. If doesn't subside in 7 days will bring him back to pediatrician.
I see... Ok. Will bear that in mind... Coz the label says every 6 hours... So far have not't hit 38 though it is near. 37.6-37.9 usually.
Hi mummies, I have one more question. If I feed paracetamol every 4-6 hours, must I feed it together with food? dear son appetite is very bad when he's sick.
Thanks Autumn mummy
