Thanks for writing to health care magic.

A throat swab is required in such a scenario to identify the bacteria that is causing the infection. Culture and sensitivity will give the right antibiotic to be used in such a scenario.

Tepid sponging is required to bring down the high fever. Paracetamol given in right doses is very useful

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
