Brief Answer: Needs blood tests if no improvement Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to health care magic. As you have already given a course of antibiotics , you can wait for one more day to see if fever settles with paracetamol. Continue paracetamol every 4 hours. If fever persists you need to get some blood tests like complete blood count crp done. Wishing your kid speedy recovery. Regards Dr XXXXXXX

I have been having alot of stress lately and also trying to get over this kill cold. I have been taking tylenol allergy and sinus each day, the liquid, but haven't gone over the directed amount. Now I am having a slightly irregular heart beat, like, 1, 2, 345, 6, 7, 8, 91011, 12, 13. Something like that. It's kind of scary but isn't producing any symptoms like tired, dizzy, nothing. Should I worry? The heartbeat thing has been going on for about a day, the cold is almost gone now so I stopped with the meds. Thanks, Matthew
