My 4 years old son has a fever since 5 days also he had loose motions . As per doctor 's advice we have given him paracetamol syrup and antibiotics. But the fever is not yet controlled. It ranges between 99 °f to 100 °f. I am worried a lot. He is not eating anything and we forcefully give him liquid diet and boiled potatoes, rice etc.
Hi, I can understand your concern.
We are getting many similar kids in our practice as well.
A fever of up to 100 f is most likely due to viral infection, and should get better over the next few days.
Do not try to force feed the baby, viral fever leads to low appetite in all of us as well.
Please hire me if you need more tips, warm regards.
