He got fever+loose motion today
Dr. Pranav Gupta
Child Specialist
Hi. Fever can be best treated symptomatically with PARACETAMOL. We need to ascertain the cause of fever and treat it. I would advise you to get your son examined by a paediatrician if fever persists.Most diarrhoeas are viral in origin. The good thing about viral diarrhoea is that they resolve in a few days on their own. You need to make sure that your son is adequately hydrated and he is taking plenty of fluids.Your queries were being answered by paediatrician Pranav Gupta. Please submit a feedback on https://www.1mgdoctors.com/reviewdoctor/dr-pranav-40b65fe7d6
