doctor1 MD

Hi, welcome to HCM.
Viral fever usually lasts for 3 to 4 days. Since, your child has fever for 10 days, a possibility of typhoid fever is very much likely.
In my opinion, you should do some blood tests like CBC, typhidot Igm for diagnosis of typhoid.
If I was your treating doctor, i would have...

My daughter is 3 years old. We are from Nepal but have been living in Australia for last one year. She has been getting high fever which gets up to 40 C every 15 to 21 days. It was more severe in winter months here, she has had lots of check ups but nothing has been diagnosed. Many times she has had tonisilitis during fever. Now she is in fever but this time her tonsils are not swollen. Fever started from Wednesday 12 January and it is still high. I took her to GP yesterday and was told to wait before medication is given. She has been on penicillian for treating tonsilitis for last every fever. This may be viral fever so we are waiting. How long viral fever can be and what should be done if fever gets very high?
