Hello doctors, good morning all. My toddler of 20months started school yesterday Monday and when I went to pick him in the afternoon, the teacher said that he cried all through safe the times that he took his meals.

This morning too when I went to drop him off, he still resume his crying.

Please can I give him PCM whether or not he's having temperature by the time he comes back.

No you cannot and should not administer Paracetamol to you child that has no fever that is temperature above 37.5

Also note that it is not unusual for some children to take a while to settle in school due to separation anxiety.

Give some time to adjust.
