Hello - thanks for getting in touch. Can you please tell me if your friend has any other symptoms? How long has she been feeling unwell and experiencing an elevated body temperature? Does your friend take any other medications or have any allergies? Is she pregnant or breast-feeding? Thank you.

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
She has a runny nose along with it and has been given two broad spectrum anti bacterial shots one yesterday and one today morning.... no she does not take any other medication and is not pregnant or breast feeding

OK and I presume your mean 100.4 F, I'm sure she would be in serious trouble otherwise. Do you know how long she has been feeling unwell? When she saw the doctor yesterday or today, was she diagnosed with something in particular? Do you know what antibacterial medication was given to her and why tablets/capsules were not prescribed? Thanks.
