My 9 months old baby had 101 degree farenhite fever yesterday night.
We are giving him Calpol (paracetamol) every 4 hours. Doctor has also prescribed an antibiotic.But has asked us to wait for 1 day before starting. We also said that he may do blood test after 2 days.

As of now his temperature is varying between 99 to 101.
Shall we start the antibiotic.
Today he vomited once.
