Patient : I made a terrible mistake. My 9 months old daughter taken Measles vaccine on 24th of December. On 31st night she had fever of 103 degree F. We gave her Paracetamol syrup to reduce the temperature. The fever kept coming after every 5-6 hours. After giving paracetamol 3 times after every 5 hours, we gave her Paracetamol suppositor. Unfortunately we didn't know that for Measles vaccine fever could happen after 7 days of vaccination as doctor didn't informed it. We thought its because of her tooth popping out currently. But today after doing some researching on internet I learned the fact and effects of paracetamol after Measles. What shall we do now? She still having fever. which medicine shall we give? Feeling so bad :(
