Hello!

I'm sorry to hear that you are feeling bad ...

I think that you need medical evaluation tomorrow if not feeling much better though ..

It is not clear at all from your history as to what the SOURCE of your illness is...

You may be having onset of gastroenteris or UTI or other ...

Physical exam and supportive testing is needed to help define your illness and guide treatment ...

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD

Ok so could the amoxicilin cuase a fever as it is used for a bacteria infection and not viral so what happened when you take amoxicilin for viral instead of bacterial
Expert:  Anthony Bray, MD replied 10 months ago.

Hello again,

No the amoxicillin should not cause a fever ..

Not knowing the SOURCE of your illness I can't tell you that amoxicillin is going to be helpful or not ...

If viral then it would not alter the course of the illness either positive or negative ..

I hope that this is helpful for you

Let me know if you have further questions or discussion

Best regards,

Anthony Bray MD
