Customer reply replied 9 months ago
No nausea, rash, head cold etc. Just the high temp and physical exhaustion. And constant headache.
Motrin, Tylenol, Advil, alcaselzer. Nothing brings relief.

Thank you very much for the useful information.

Honestly in the absence of any clinical symptoms, its difficult to diagnose an infection and it becomes imperative to have this evaluated by a physician in terms of a clinical examination aided by some basic tests like a CBC.

Most of the infections are self limiting as they are caused by viruses; but as per standard guidelines, any persistent fever beyond 48 hours, which is not even breaking its cycle (in your case); should be reported and evaluated by a physician.

Also, this becomes more important when you have headache associated with this; to rule out any serious infection which can involve brain.

Keep yourself adequately hydrated; and take Tylenol for control of fever.

I would have this evaluated by now; in terms of blood tests, cultures, urinalysis and chest xray initially

Good luck

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
