Hi,

Thanks for writing in. .

Your son seems to be suffering with an infective process which is either bacterial or viral. If it is associated with chills then diagnosis of malaria or typhoid need to be considered.

As he has a high grade fever that is persisting for 3 days, it is advisable to visit a board certified pediatrician for evaluation. Your son needs proper medical attention and antibiotics too.

In the interim you can give syrup or tables paracetamol 250 mg every 4 hours . Also wipe his body with XXXXXXX warm water to decrease body temperature.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further concern, please let me know.

But now this diclofenac sodium paracetamol tablet does not give much relief to severity of pain. How safe is this tablet taken on an average of 4 tablets per month and what are its side effects. Pl. suggest a better medicine.

Last year, i started having that pain in my tonsils, ears hurt and having a high fever that lasts up to two weeks. This happens almost every 3months up to now. I never consulted a Doctor. I'm 19 years old, female. I remembered the days when i swallowed my boyfriends semen, this is where it all started. I drink paracetamol and anti bacterial, lozenges and pineapple juice for relief. Will it be throat cancer when i get old? What is this?
