Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

For mild to moderate fever Tylenol is enough.

If the fever is high, give ibuprofen in prescribed dose.

After starting antibiotic, usually it will take 48 to 72 hours to see an improvement in the symptoms of the child.

Continue the medication as advised by your Pediatrician and if the fever persists beyond 3 to 4 days of antibiotic consult again for re examination.

Hope I have answered your query.
