Hi I have high fever around 103 to 104 every day since 1 month and my doctor asked me to take amoxixillin 500mg 2wice a day. But im still not cured?

FUO? There are too many causes to even guess, especially since you don't say what other symptoms you have. Fever of unknown origin (FUO) to103-104 could be very serious, and whatever the cause, it clearly is not responding to amoxicillin. Don't stop taking it unless your doctor advises it -- but for sure return ASAP for further evaluation. Or ask for referral to an infectious diseases specialist. Read more...

The bad news is that many viral illnesses will have fever as part of their natural course & meds may not alter the fever. The fever is not destructive, it is a sign the body recognizes illness & speeds up it's metabolism to fight it. I would concentrate more on assuring good fluid intake to avoid dehydration.
