Mistakenly given 15ml of tylenol instead of 5ml to my 2.5 yrs old daughter. Given 1 dose on 2:30AM and one more dose on 11 AM .. after that only i realised i made a big mistake. Called poison control and they said dont give any dose for 24 hrs. But still my daughter is having fever 102.3 ..What can i do now... I am really very scared and i know this is my fault... i dont know what to do now... pls help.
Does she simply have a cold or the flu? Put her in a lukewarm bath and slowly add cooler water. This should bring her fever down. If not or if she has more serious symptoms, call your health care practitioner.
There are 2 issues here.
One is the accident overdose of tylenol and the other is fever.
If you are not satisifed with the response from poison control, you could try getting a second opinion: Call them back or you could call telehealth.
That degree of fever alone does not scare me in a 2.5 year old. Is she lethargic? Glassy eyes? Unable to drink and keep it down? If you answered yes to any of these, I would bring her in. If you sense something is off, bring her in.
I do think sponging her down, even just her face and arms, with cool water can help to gently lower her fever.
Keep us updated. Healthy vibes
