Tylenol: Do not take this even if you have a fever, which you actually do not. Fever is either a temp over 100F or which does not fall to 98.6F or less within 24 hrs. Even you had a fever there is no need to suppress it unless you are very uncomfortable or it begins to exceed 104F. Have a great baby. ...Read more

I have had a low grade fever 99.5 and i'm on antibiotics and taking tylenol and morton? Why isn't my fever going down?
Fever: You do not necessarily have a fever. A temp of 99.5 f is normal late in the day. If you reach 100 f or fail to get as low as 98.6 f during a 24 hour period you are considered febrile (having fever), but even then it may not be clinically relevant. The question is why are you on antibiotics and what was the diagnosis? If this is viral you certainly don't need these. Hope you are better soon. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. Boyfriend feels warm, donâ€™t have a thermometer to determine temperature, has no symptoms other than hip discomfort and has a history of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. 1. Buying a thermometer is a first step. It is much less expensive than a trip to the er. 2. If temperature is 103 f or greater, he should call his doctor. 3. If he has a temperature of 104 f or greater, recommend that at minimum, he talk to his doctor who can let him know if needs to be evaluated by him or an acute care clinic. If he becomes confused, or has a stiff neck with a high fever, he should definitely be seen at the emergency room. 4. A temperature below 100.4 is usually not considered medically significant. A fever for seven days or more should prompt a call to the doctor. I do not know how his history of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy plays into this. What is good, is the fact that he seems to be feeling pretty good â€” maybe his fever is only low grade. Invest in a thermometer today take care. P.S. You sound like you are a very nurturing girlfriend. ...Read more

I have a swollen gland at the right upper right/groin. Mild, low grade fever 100.5, controlled by tylenol. Only been less than 24 hours. Infection?
Cannot diagnose: Without a full history and exam it is impossible to tell for certain, but it sounds like an infection. Have you been exposed to stds or have you had prostate issues or other known problems? If this persists and you are concerned, go and see your pcp. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
