Brief Answer:
Could be Viral.

Detailed Answer:
Hi. Welcome to Healthcare Magic. I am Dr Anshul Varshney for your help.
You might be simply suffering from Viral fever and viral takes 5 days to improve.
Moreover widal test comes positive after 5-7 days for fever.
My recommendations in such cases to my patients is to wait for total 5 days. If fever persists then only I investigate.
I would suggest you to take Dolo 650 three times a day and repeat it if fever comes in between.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query please ask me.

The fever at 3:00pm is 103.7. Even my doctor is suggesting to bring the fever down Dolo is the only medicine he is also suggesting to take Flexon in the night dose as it will help reduce the fever.
I am just worried that is the persistent fever is issue or is normal in case of viral
