Hi XXXXXXX
Please give some more information about your fever ,whether there are chills,cough,cold body pain,abdominal pain,etc so that the cause can be localized.
Have they tested for dengue,malaria etc?
If your fever continues you should be tested for above diseases and typhoid.
High citric acid does not mean infection alone and urine culture result should be seen. What was the urine culture result?
You are on antibiotics.
May be it is simple viral fever also.
How high is the fever?

Take paracetamol ( like crocin or fepanil)500mg two tablets every 6 hrs and then if fever goes up in between take meftal.
(After food.)

Good luck
Dr Uma

Hi, I think I may have a paracetamol allergy. I have a rash around my mouth and chin. I took one Dolo 650 day before yesterday in the afternoon. Yesterday morning, I woke up with the rash. It has not subsided but it has not got worse either. It is very itchy. What doctor should I consult? Should I go to a skin specialist for immediate relief? Also how to determine for sure if it is an allergic reaction? I may have had a viral infection too as my children had viral fever at that time
