High fever and bodyache

I am having high fever (~104 °F) , runny nose, bodyache and shivering since Monday. I have taken 6 doses of Paracetamol 650 mg till now. The fever reduces to 99 and then rises again. Doctor recommended me to take antibiotic for runny nose. I have taken 2 doses (500 mg each) after 24 hrs. Now, I don't have any fever but have severe throat pain. Due to throat pain, I am unable to swallow anything. Please suggest some remedy for relief to me.
