Hello,

I will suggest you to monitor your temperature and compare it to initial ones. If it is remitting slowly you should continue the same antibiotics and wait. If there is no change in your temperature, you should get a relatively stronger antibiotic, along with that you need to do gargles, bed rest and have plenty of fluids. If still things doesn't settle, go for complete blood picture, liver function tests and blood sugars.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammad Faisal Bacha, Internal Medicine Specialist
