Precautions

However mild the fever may be, always consult a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Never try to experiment by taking same medication as prescribed earlier, as each episode of fever has to be treated on its merit. Same medication may have deleterious effect due to different diagnosis of cause of fever.

Certain fevers like meningitis require urgent management, otherwise they can prove to be fatal and may also cause long term complications, even if patient survives.

Quack therapy in form of pain killers and haphazard treatment will not only delay diagnosis and treatment but will itself cause complications.

Once correct diagnosis is made, take medicines in correct dosage and as per schedule prescribed by doctor. Never try to prematurely stop treatment against medical advise, even if fever has subsided. This is especially true with anti biotic course.

Report all symptoms as they develop, no matter how insignificant they may seem to you, especially rashes, vomiting, pain abdomen, intestinal bleeds.

Report side effects, if any, due to medication prescribed. Never hesitate to call the doctor on phone for instant advise.
