You should: probably call off. Fever is often a sign of a contagious infection and I am certain your boss and workmates would prefer not to be exposed. If the fever continues for more than 36 hours you should seek evaluation by a health care professional. You can alternate Tylenol with Advil every four hours but read the bottle label to avoid exceeding the maximal dose.
