I quickly remembered it's time to deform her again. She vomited upto 4to5times and stooled 3times. While doing all this she was not running temperature but her legs and hands was cold. Now I rushed to a pharmacist to get a pyrantrin and lonart antimalaria When I got there he asked me why do I want to buy the drugs. I told him the incident that happened. He told me to join zinc sulphate and metronidazole and paracetamol with ors I did. But now my baby is seriously running temperature instead of getting fine. The stooling and vomiting stopped, she stooled this evening and its normal. But her temperature is too high now even after giving paracetamol, I give her every 4hours 5ml and pullcold water on her body continuesly. Still she's running temperature. She will sleep and wake-up cry and sleep again. This Pls i need help and advice. "
