Hello There. I can understand your concern. You can give him tab. dolo650 thrice a dat after food. if it still persists, then you will have to consult a general physician in person near you. Do tepid ponging and ask him to drink lots of water. avoid oily and spicy foods. you may need some tests as well because dengue and typhoid fevers are on a rise. Best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain.

High fever of 103°F is not a advisable state to get self treated. Consult your nearest physician. You can get down temperature by tepid sponging and iv paracetamol.. but major issue is there will lot of invisible losses of fluids due to high temperature. Blood pressure may get down and since dengue is rampant in this season,may lead to dengue shock syndrome and multi organ failure.
Kindly, check complete blood picture for wbc and platelet count,dengue serology..

Give lot of fluids in form of coconut water,fresh fruit juices,ors.. large amount of plane water may cause electrolyte inbalance.. if not taking orally plan for iv fluids at 7 to 10ml/kg/hr and continue according to your physician advise.

Hello there...I can understand your concern. Since the fever is running very high and is continuous, it is better he is given intravenous infusion of paracetamol. He might need broad spectrum antibiotics also. Given him plently of fluids and make sure he is hydrated properly. Give only home cooked meals. Consult a general physician at any hospital for further evaluation. Dengue fever is very common in this season. So he might need to get dengue serology also.
