My 3yr old has a high temperature (39.2 degrees celsius), i gave her 5ml of ponstan 30min ago but her temperature only went down to 38.9. Is there anything else i can do to bring down the fever? Its winter and today its freezing so im not comfortable taking her clothes off in order to cool her down.
With a temp as high as that you should take her to the doctor. Is Ponstan (I am assuming it contains mefenamic acid, in your country as well) given to children there? You could give her acetaminophen (paracetamol) but definitely take her to your doctor.
Although it is freezing, depending on how many layers she is wearing, you could take a layer of her clothing off.
