Thanks for writing to us.
The doctor has already started with antibiotics/antacids/antipyretics ,the temperature has also thereby reduced.Kindly follow his advice.The doctor would have suspected Ac respiratory infection.It could have been Viral/bacterial in origin.
Usually 48 hours is required to get a clear indication of effectiveness of the treatment ,otherwise investigations have to be carried out by the treating doctor.
The usual investigations include Blood tests such as Hb%,TLC
,RBS and Urinalysis-complete.A Chest X-Ray to rule out Consolidation(Suspected Pneumonia
) and in some cases Throat Swab culture.
Kindly also include Warm Saline Gargling/Abstain from Smoking
if you are a smoker.Consume freshly prepared/cooked food and not stored food as stored or tinned food acts as a culture medium for bacteria.
Wishing you the very best and a quick recovery.
