Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

Chills can occur as a response to fever. Often when a person has chills, the initial response is to bundle up but he needs to reduce his temperature. This would be achieved by the use of anti pyretics such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. In addition he should consider cool clothing, cool liquids and tepid sponging.

He can continue using the medication.

I hope this helps
