Fever: Commence paracetamol - appropriate dosage every 6 to 8 hrs. Also use alternate methods of cooling like warm sponging and baths with less clothing. Ensure adequate hydration. Consult your GP if not settling in the next day or 2. Alternatively, you can do a virtual consultation with a Dr online, through the Discovery DrConnect app, where we can assess and send a script if necessary. TC. Dr Aylwin
