Do you have any other symptoms with fever?
Fever that does not respond to antipyretics could be a sign of a problem that needs further evaluation ..
How old are you? M/f?
Any medical history?

Hi
All medications won’t work unless you reach 100.4 with ice , ice packs + cold water in the tub will do the trick, once you drop below 100.4 you can take your antipyretic
Good Luck

hi
this seems to be a viral fever.
Malaria,dengue and other viral infections need to be ruled out.
get Complete blood count with platelets and WBCs checked.
thanks

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

It can be very.much a viral Infection but if fever is not resolving then a blood test should be done to rule out the cause of the problem and treatment can be done accordingly..

As of now you should continue taking a combination of Tylenol and ibuprofen..
Do cool compresses over the forehead and extremities..

Hope this helps.
