Cold and Fever

My wife has not been feeling well. She had 105 temp for few days and had some medicine but she is very weak and her blood count has decreased to 10. I am worried about her health. She is in Mumbai. Her eyes seems to be rolled up at times and has bad cough and cold. Seems synus and the Dr. says she doesnt have cold but...I need her to be cured once and for all as we are planning a family and would not like to take chance with her health. Please suggest.

Hyperthermia or increased body temperature above 104° F is dangerous and may be life threatening. While waiting to transfer her to a hospital, if waiting for an ambulance, you may give her Crocin (Paracetamol) and do tepid sponging (wipe with a wet towel) with lukewarm water her entire exposed body surface leaving time for the water to evaporate. This should bring down her body temperature quickly.

Your wife requires URGENT Admission to an Institutional Hospital. Call an ambulance if you have to immediately!
