In brief: Depends.

If you still have fever after 72 hours of antibiotics call the prescribing doctor now.
No antibiotic kills all germs. You may need a different antibiotic. If you cannot reach your doc, consider a reasonably priced virtual Consult with a doc on Healthtap Prime today (available 24/7).
