After 5days if fever Nvr go down, go hospital.. If fever up, down, up, down, especially after eating both ibuprofen n paracetamol, need not worry.. It's viral.. Baby active? If baby active, no need worry too much.. Sponge n sponge.. Babies love the coldest.. Not recommended to eat antibiotics, cuz it isn't bacteria infection..??

if it did went down after brufen, then it's not so alarming. It sounds like a viral fever. the temp will def be gg up and down. Sponge baby often and continue w the meds

do you mean after brufen, the temp doesn't drop down at all for a single bit? do sponge the child in the meantime also. Focus on the armpit, behind neck & groin area too

after giving ibuprofen fever still up and down

temp will be up and down. it's normal. also did they give antibiotic? fever happens when the body is trying to fight off the sickness.
