Doctor who'd fixed my dehydration issue a couple of weeks back wasn't in during the weekend; so met him yesterday. This time he seems to be treating for a proper viral infection - with something that seems to be an orally administered cousin of penicillin (I think, though he told me simply that it's an antibiotic).
Two doses so far, of 6 - next one is due 2 hrs from now. So far, the fever goes down so far as Paracetamol is in the system- 4-5 hours after medication; then it returns to its new normal - 101-103F. And appetite is down to zero; guess I'll lose a kilo or two more by the time I'm through.
There won't be another post till my temperature is under control. Sorry.
