Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The infection and the inflammation takes a week to two weeks to settle completely.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Until it is completely settled you may get symptoms that you are having.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should, however, keep monitoring your temperature.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If your temperature is coming down with treatment, well and good.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If its not coming down, is the same or is rising then you may require a change in antibiotic.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Give the antibiotic at least two to three days to start working.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that presently, if your temperature is better without paracetamol, you should continue the same treatment as prescribed.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have more questions.
