Thanks for writing your query.

The medicine you have mentioned contains paracetamol and codeine.
Your fever recurs after 6 hours as the antipyretic effect of the paracetamol decreases in that duration.

It might be a possibility that you are having infection in your urinary tract. So, you should also get your urine examined (Routine/Microscopic). Also get your blood investigated for malaria and typhoid.

Donot self medicate. Get yourself examined and investigated by a Physician.

Increase in Eosinophil count shows that a person is suffering from allergy or worm infestation. Increase of eosinophil count more than 6 is significant. Zero count indicates that you are not having any allergic condition.

I hope this is helpful to you.
