Hi, we are sorry for the late reply.

Thank your for reaching us on DoctorOnCall. We understand your concern regarding your son’s condition.

Our advice is to bring your child to see a doctor as soon as possible. Paracetamol is given to relieve the discomfort. We need more history and further investigation needed to be done to find out the cause of your son’s condition.

Feeling feverish? Check your temperature and get a quick relief.

For your information, our normal body temperature is between 36.5 to 37.5 degree Celcius. Anything below or above the normal range would need to be investigated further. There are cases where it is related to thermometer reading error.

Still having worries about your child’s condition? Our dedicated Paediatricians will help you out.

If you have any more questions or inquiries, do contact us at (DoctorOnCall) and our doctor will assist you. Thank you.
