At present your little girl only has a slight fever. This is her only symptom. We do not know whether she is getting a cold or if she has an infection such as an ear or urinary system infection. So all you need to do is to use the Panado Syrup which is safe and effective.Flucsin C contains an antihistamine which will make her drowsy and also pseudoephedrine which is not recommended for children under 2 years.Coryx syrup also contains similar ingredients and is not recommended.
