My 3 month old daughter has acold fever her body temperature is 36.2. She feels cold and she is sweating alot! I gave her 1.2ml of panedo?

I would observe her for other symptoms, not alert, rash, or other symptoms in the next 1-2 d and see MD to check if these symptoms progress. ...Read more

That also occurs during recovery from a fever without medicine. Of course, this answer does not address the CAUSE of the baby's fever. That requires medical evaluation. ...Read more
