Pediatrician 's  Response
Feb 2013

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Cold, cough, followed by fever mostly due to a infection with a virus or bacterial of upper respiratory tract infection.

Time is taken by antibiotic to treat infection for at least 3 to 5 days during there will be spikes of fever.

Widal test of 1/40 is negative.

Other investigations like CBP, malarial parasite, CUE, and chest x ray to be done after the pediatrician consultation to look for any focus of infection if the fever is not responding to antibiotic.

Therefore I advise you to consult the pediatrician for follow up.

Hope I have answered your query.
