Brief Answer:
Most likely viral fever, take paracetamol 650 mg thrice a day.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mr XXXX,

From your description, I thing you are having the onset of a viral fever, so do not worry too much, relax and take bed rest for 3 days.

You can take Paracetamol (Dolo) 650 mg three times a day for 3 days for the headache and fever.

Watch out for any vomiting, giddiness, blurring of vision, or cough and sputum, if you develop any of these, then please consult a local doctor immediately, otherwise, wait and see for 4-5 days, the fever and headache will come down.

If there is no improvement even after 5 days, then you will need to consult your doctor and get some blood tests, urine tests done and take appropriate antibiotics.


Hope you will get well soon
