Hello doctor,

I am having fever since yesterday, so I had some Paracetamol tablets. After that, I consulted a local doctor today, who prescribed me tablet Paracetamol IP 500 mg, antacid antigas liquid, tablet Becozyme C forte and ORS pouches. Even after seven hours of taking medications, I still have 103 degrees Fahrenheit body temperature, and in some instances, 102 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition to that, I am feeling fatigued and having pain in my back and neck while rotating. What to do now? Please help.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

Based on your symptoms, I would keep the first possibility as dengue as it fits into this diagnosis. So I would suggest you get dengue NS1 (Dengue virus antigen detection) and dengue serology testing. Secondly, get a complete blood count to have a broader idea of your illness. I suggest you take tablet Anaprox (Naproxen 250mg) for fever, and your fever will subside. But for proper treatment, you need the right diagnosis. So kindly get these tests done.

Hope this helps.

Kindly revert back in case of further queries.
