Hi XXXXXXX

Thank you for your query.

Upper respiratory tract infection can be associated with high fever. Whenever the fever rises fast one can shiver till the fever stabilizes. You can give your daughter acetaminophen syp. 5 ml. 4-6 hourly if the temperature is above 37.3C. If cough is persisting then some decongestant syrup can be given.

Another cause of fever can be urine routine examination.

I hope I have responded to your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you need any clarifications or would like to give more facts.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.

Regards,

RKK

Hi Doc

I am a male, 68yo, widower, Chinese (not from China). I lead an active sex life.....I have sex at least twice a week sometimes with different women (not prostitute). For the last 1 month, 5 out of 10 times that I have sex...I couldn't ejaculate although the sensation of ejaculation were there. I have Type 1 Diabetes..I inject 52mg of insulin everyday plus captoril and simvastatin. I also consume 80mg of Aspirin everyday for the last 20 years.



My question is.....Is there any kind of medication\drug that I can take so that I can ejaculate each time I have sex.



Thank you.

I am 67, 6 foot 4 inches, approx 230 lbs. Numerous symptoms: Upper spinal pain at the base of my skull; Lower spinal pain in the Lumbar region; frequent urination; diarrhea; occasional dizziness and tired a lot. I have a military history involving multiple head injuries, and personal assaults. I have been in three major auto accidents; in one, struck from my left side severely by a vehicle moving very fast. Pronounced dead at scene (Obvious error). March of 08, had tumor (Macro adenoma) removed from my pituitary. The frequent urination is about every one to two and a half hours. The longer part is not unusual for me, but for about four days, I have had frequent diarrhea and intense low back pain as well. I am on several meds, Hydrocodone, Simvastatin, Omeprazole, Levothyroxine, and Doxazosin Mesylate. I drink very very seldom (Alcoholic beverages) and only use the drugs prescribed, aside from occasional aspirin. I am also taking some vitamin supplements.
