Thank you for your questions. The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

First and foremost, fever is when your body temperature ranges between 37.5 and above. Hence, if your temperature is less than that you are not having any fever. The treatment is based on your symptoms. If objectively, it cannot be proven that you have fever, than treatment is not necessary as antipyretic is used to reduce body temperature and antibiotic is used to treat infection in your body shown by change in body temperature.

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints.
