Dust allergy,chest infection,breathing problem,fever.

I am alergic to dust. I had breathing problems since Nov.2011 after replacing a old cotton bed and did some wall painting. I was under treatment with a chest specialist for alergy and chest infection, and the breathing problem reduced but due to over dose of tablets although i do not have much of a breathing problem I have developed internal fever which is less than 100 F which comes down with paracetamol but is persisting for the past two weeks. I have visited another doctor who has given me antibiotics which I have taken for the past 5 days with no positive results. He says I have to do a PFT and cardiac test. What should I do? Please help. I feel very exhausted with to much of medication.

You have taken treatment for allergic breathing problem, and later developed fever.But fever can not be due to side effect of any tablet usually given for allergic breathing problems.
I would suggest you to record temperature pattern and then consult doctor. There are many conditions like TB/Malaria where particular temperature rise pattern will be present.
Get lung function test [PFT] and imaging too ,to rule out infective foci.
As fever is there means , there is infective foci in body.
So consult doctor for thorough clinical examination.
Take care.

Dr. Neelam.
