Brief Answer:
How high is your fever? Are Tylenol will help!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this fever. It would be important to report any other possible symptoms you may be having like headaches, cough, breathing difficulties, abdominal pain, urinary changes, et. This will help us narrow down what the possible causes could be and from there propose a treatment plan. It will also help me in deciding whether this can wit till your doctor returns or requires immediate attention. Finally, report the temperature value to me for further insightsFor now, tylenol 1g at most every 6hours would address the fever. But then, we need to identify the cause and treat to be sure we are on the right path.

I hope this helps I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
