Suffering from Upper Respiratory Tract Infection which is causing recurring fever. Please help.Last Updated - Fri, Mar 16 2018
My mother is 50 years old and is suffering from recurrent fever. It all started on 2nd May.
- It started with general throat problem
- We visited one doctor ENT specialist. He gave one medicine. She started having that medicine. She used to vomit most of the time after started this medicine. Even though, she took that medicine for 3 days.
- Then we visited one more doctor ENT specialist. He gave one more antibiotic. She started having that. She didn't face any problem with antibiotic but improvement was not significant. Earlier she used to have the swallowing problem but it improved a bit after having this medicine for 5 days.
Earlier she used to have a fever every 4 hours then it became once in a day. Her blood reports are bit fine except ESR 55 and nucleophile - 75% as well as TLC 11400.
Please help me out with this. Is there anything related to big disease?

Upper Respiratory Tract Infection
- Nasal Discharge
- Running nose
- Nasal Congestion
- Sore throat
- URTI are one of the most common reasons for doctor visits.
- They can happen at any time but are most common in the fall and winter.
- They are the most common illness resulting in missed work or school.
- The vast majority of upper respiratory infections are caused by viruses and are self-limited.
- Antibiotics are rarely needed for treatment and generally should be avoided unless the doctor suspects a bacterial infection. If required at all, the doctor might suggest antibiotics like norflox tz etc.
- Simple techniques, such as proper hand washing and covering face while coughing or sneezing, may reduce the spread of upper respiratory infections.
