 Contact the doctor

During initial visit the doctor can assess the fever, coexisting signs and symptoms and status of other chronic long term illnesses. It is not unusual for hypertension to deteriorate or blood sugar to go out of control in a patient of high blood pressure or diabetes during fever. The initial assessment can help in forming a tentative diagnosis in mind of physician.

  1. When patient develops any new significant symptoms, like rashes, intestinal bleeds, chest pain etc. contact the doctor for review.

  2. If the fever is not coming under control or getting worse, contact the doctor, more so after 6 days of fever. He may recommend you certain tests for confirmatory diagnosis.

  3. Contact at once if any major event such as seizures, bleeding, delirium develops.

  4. Contact in case of any drug allergy or reactions prescribed for fever.
