Customer Question

My son has had a fever now for 5 days. We ended up going to the ER, Thursday morning at 12:30, they told me he had strep throat, gave us antibiotics and sent us home. Now that he's been on antibiotics now for 24 hours, should his fevers have gone away by now? This morning it was 101.8 at 4:30, now it's 102.2. Ive given him Tylenol and Motrin for the fevers, Motrin seems to be working better for him but last night he ended up with a bloody nose on top of everything else

Greetings,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

Antibiotic can take some more time to have maximal effect.

It can take 2 days too.

You can wait a day more.

Bleeding nose can occur in upper respiratory infection.

You can pinch or squeeze the soft part of the nose between your thumb & index finger & hold it for 10 minutes.

It would help to stop bleeding.

If you can not stop bleeding by this process or if the bleeding continues for more than 20 minutes, you need to take him to doctor again.

I hope this information will be helpful.
