Fever on antibiotics: Would consult with doctor. 3 days usually sees significant decrease to actual cessation of fever, if it is the appropriate antibiotic. may be viral( mononucleosis- ( lymph nodes big? ) the wrong antibiotic i.e. may need a drug that covers atypical bacterial like azithromycin , rarely may be fungal or may be autoimmune - consider Kawasaki s disease or very rarely malignancy. Would call doctor
