Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney.
I understand your concern.
These days in practice we are also seeing such high grade viral fever which are taking upto 15 days to resolve.
However I would advise you to get his Xray Chest and a repeat Hemogram and Ultrasound Abdomen done just to rule out any other focus of infection.
I would advise in such case to stop all the medicines and Give Tab Doxycycline 100 mg twice a day and Tab Paracetamol 650 mg thrice a day.
This fever should resolve in next 3-5 days if the above mentioned investigations are also negative.
If you have any further query please ask me.
