Suffering from fever with temperature. Took some cold tablet

Dear Doctor , I am suffering from fever for last 4 days, 3 days back on the advice of doctor i started taking Sumocold tablet 2 times a day. Temperature fluctuates between 96-101 F, once i take medicine it gets down but daily again my temp gets increased to 99-100 F. I have already taken 6 tablets, should I go for more or wait to see whether temp increases in night or tomorrow s morning. Other symptoms are headache only.

hi

As the fever is since 4 days only nothing to worry.. it can be a viral fever which usually subsides by a week.. if not , the a clinical and blood investigation is required to rule out other reasons...
consult a physician.
