Thank you for your questions. The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. 38.9 degree celcius is considered as high grade fever and fever medication is needed to relieve the fever. However, you need to be sure that your kid has no allergy towards the medication and you are advised to bring the kid to a doctor to find out the causes of fever. In the case of dengue, if given the wrong fever medication, you may cause more harm than good. Hence, a proper diagnosis has to be made before commencing any treatment.

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online for free.
