Persistent fever

Well I started getting a common cold last Wednesday (9 days ago), and have had a steady fever that I haven't been able to shake ever since. I take lukewarm showers day and night to try and cool my body temperature and I'm taking Tylenol cold tablets. (Tried DayQuil and NyQuil also). I'm not able to go to a drugstore because of where I am for work.

Anybody have any suggestions on how I can make this fever break?

Hey,

It may not be a common cold it may be an infection of some type, common colds usually run thier course in 7-10 days. Perhaps check this out since we don't know what you have available. http://health.howstuffworks.com/well...for-fevers.htm

temp means infection. Your body is trying to kill something with heat. You need to go to a doc and get a scrip for antibiotics.

Go to a real doctor. A Tacoma forum is not the cure.

Quote:
If you've had a fever for more than three days, however, get checked by your doctor. Persistent fever can signal a hidden infection, which could be anything from a urinary tract infection to tuberculosis. In some cases, cancerous (malignant) conditions — such as lymphomas — cause prolonged or persistent fevers, as can some medications.

No I haven't and I don't have access to a real one either. I work in a remote location, closest doctor is 180 miles away.

The earliest I can get to see one is on the 16th...

Forget about any nyquil or other stuff that shuts your systems down, including your immune system. There is no cure for the common cold.

You need vitamins C and D (read for dosage amounts), LOTS of water, I mean more than 64oz's per day at least, and 1000MG of tylenol every 4 hours.
Thats how I normally get rid of fevers and flu type symptoms.

And I agree with the getting to the doctor part.
9 days is too long.

Nice edit...

How about you take your useless "know it all" arrogance elsewhere? Maybe someone has legitimate suggestions considering this is the "health" category...

I'm on orange juice overload, drinking tons of water and taking tylenol every 4 hours (when I'm awake).

You see arrogance, and I see ignorance. We can both make observations.

You didn't mention in your first post that you are unable to see a doctor.

I would do everything possible to see a doctor if I had a fever for over a week. Using common sense isn't trying to convey that I "know it all".

Persistent fevers and fevers of unknown origin are no joke.

Good luck with your fever.

Chick! Calm the F down. You are sick and you need to see a real doc. 180 miles? Better start off now because when you are sick you are sick and you need to seek help.

Might be tree pollen / plant allergy. Often such can run for several weeks, feels like a flu and does not have to have sneeze.
