My 1 year old has chicken pox. Gave a 0.5ml dose of piriton

My 1 year old has chicken pox. Gave a 0.5ml dose of piriton 1 hour ago but she now has a temperature. Can I give Calpol as well as the piriton she's already had.
Hi--there are no contraindications in giving her both the piriton and the calpol so if she still has a fever you can give her the calpol and you can give her that every six hours as needed for the fever
