Suggest medication for low grade fever

I have run a low grade fever for the past 3 days; 100.8-101.7. I don t have a cough or any symptoms of that sort. It starts about 4:00 and is elevated until I take a couple of Extra Strength Tylenol, back to normal in a couple of hours. I do have joint aches and some chills; I m sitting with a blanket right now. I m more worried about being contagious and giving something to my family. I think it s time to make a doctor s appointment, what do you think? I just saw the cost; I ll call my doctor on Monday. Thank you

Welcome to HCM
Thanks for posting your query in HCM.I understand your concerns.As you have only low grade fever which is not associated with sore throat and chills,most probably its of viral origin.
Tab.crocin or Tab.dolo-650 mg for three times daily will help you to suffice your symptoms.
Also have plenty of hot water.If you sweat a lot,fever will come down.Take good amount of semisolid foods.

Hope you are happy with the answer.

Thank you
