Patient :My son is 5 year old and he is having fever of about 102 for last 3 days. Yesterday, we took him to urgent care and they did a quick test and confirmed step throat. He is taking antibiotic from yesterday evening. But his temperature remains high and comes down after taking Tylenol or ibuprofen.
Can you please let me know , how long will it take for his fever to go away? How long to wait to know whether antibiotic is working?
