Hi, I had gone through your query and understood your concerns.
Sir, As you mentioned Fever is recurrent after the action of medicine subsides. As it is already 3 days, Better to get blood test done for Malarial parasite and Typhoid fever. If positive, Then treating them directly would be better choice. If they are negative then you can wait for two more days with paracetamol and cold sponging.
Hope this guides you. Wishing you good health. Dr Phanindra Dulipala.
