Suggest medication for fever and chillness

Hi, I ve had a fever that goes up to 101.8 and then decreases down to the average. My body is always shivering all the time, with chills covering my body but i sometimes sweat when it happens. On top of all that, my body aches all over especially my back and legs. I feel super weak and can barely make it just taking a shower

Hi,
It seems that you might be having viral fever giving rise fever with generalized body-ache, chills and fatigue.
This will remain for 3-4 days.
Take ibuprofen or paracetamol as needed.
Take plenty of water and liquids and keep well hydrated.
Take rest and take light diet.
If problem persisted then go for complete blood checking like TC, DC, Malarial paracite etc.
Ok and take care.
Ok and take care.

My son has very high fever. He is 4 years old and has been having fever for the past two days..last night was bad as his fever went upto 103.6f . I gave P125 which didnt work. so gave a towel bath and gave ibugesic plus 8 ml(he weighs 13.4kgs). Now he is fine. but not sure how long and frequently i can give ibugesic. He also had shaking chills last night . We have been giving him an antibiotic that the doctor prescribed for the past 2 days...to be given for 3 more days.. Why did he get shivering chills..why is the fever not responding to normal paracetemal. how much more should i give this ibugesic, is it safe for a 4 year old kid?

My 4 year old has a fever, chills, swollen glands and cold hands and feet and headache from time to time. Have given her calpol and ibuprofen, temp reduces then for a few hours but glands still making neck hurt. This has started since Friday afternoon. She seems fine in herself after medicine has taken effect but feels bad again when temp starts to rise.
