Patient :My son had a fever of 102.6 last night and dropped down to around 99.1 today. Now all of a sudden he's up to 103.3. Should I take him to the doctor now? Or should I wait and see if it gets worse?
Thank you for writing to us.
How old is your son? You should see a Doctor as soon as possible to get treated and get help for this.
The Medication will involve taking Paracetamol syrup and maybe IV paracetamol to control the fever. Hope this helps your son to recover. All the best.
