Hi, My son was diagnosed with strep throat Monday (after he had fever since Saturday night). He was prescribed amoxicillin. He already had 4 doses of the antibiotic. Is it ok that his fever is still going up? I measured 101.2 a few minutes ago. Or sh

If "strep throat" was confirmed by "rapid-strep" or throat culture, fever should abate after 48 hours on Amoxicillin, 6 doses if given 3x/day, but he needs to his full course of antibiotics to prevent Rheumatic Fever, a result of partially-treated pharyngitis from certain strains of streptococcus. If not, he may have a viral pharyngitis, even "mono", but finish the course unless his doctor tells you not to. .
