Just providing a symptom of fever, will not help in this case. It would be great, if the patient also provide's other symptoms patient is suffering from (Viz, running nose, cough, burning micturation, loose motion's etc.) This might help to reach a diagnosis. And fever as a symptom may also need some genuine evaluation.

However, in most scenario's fever as a symptoms turns out to be due to viral infection. And symptomatic treatment ususally subsides.

1.most fevers encountered in General Practice are viral,self limiting,and require only symptomatic treatment.
2.before labelling a fever as viral,look for pallor,jaundice,neck stiffness, abdomen for liver and spleen and auscultate for chest. there any running epidemic. fever with chills or without chills.
5.any associated burning micturition,cloudy urine, or loin pain.
6.with cough or cold??

hi fever itself is not a disease,its a symptom of some infection present some where in the body so only paracetamol wont help have to take antibiotic to subside the infection ok.

fever is a vague symptom, which will not alone help in diagnosis, is fever with chills?
malaria, viral, urinary tract infection, all r accompanied by fever.typhoid any other infection, TB all cause fever , since it is our bodys defense mechanism.

General & Family Physician Dr. V Ramachandran's  Response
If you are having only fever and no other symptoms, Paracetamol 500 mg four times a day would be enough for the first two days. If fever does not subside then you need to see your doctor, maybe do some blood tests. If however you have other symptoms like cough, diarrhoea, painful urination, etc, then you may require suitable antibiotics which your doctor could prescribe.

hi,Fever is a rise in our body's normal temperature, which, on average, is 98.6 degrees Farenheit. Fever is part of our body's defense mechanism. When our bodies are fighting infections, our body temperature rises. But why? Fever is a symptom of an infection. Fever is a symptom of almost every disease known to man. Illnesses caused by viruses and bacteria invade our bodies and make us sick. Without our immune system to fight off these infections, we could die. Colds, tonsillitis, otitis media, the flu, bronchitis, tetanus, measles, mumps, chicken pox, AIDS, pneumonia are all examples of bacterial and viral infections. Always its better to have a doctor evaluate a patient with fever.

thank you for asking query.
Do not worry and don't need of blood investigation if you have just temperature from yesterday. Take paracetamol 500 mg thrice for one day. if no response and appearance of other symptoms, then consult your doctor for proper treatment.
