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
