Normally, a fever is not a bad thing unless it has 100.4F: 38.0 degrees. Fever is simply the result of an immune response by your body to a foreign functioning either caused by bacteria or fungi or even as a side effect of other medicines and one is mostly advised to take paracetamol to ease the discomfort, if symptoms persist though it's best to see a doctor.

Paracetamol reduces the body’s ability to manufacture, which is responsible for raised temperature Also it doesn't have anticoagulant action compared to other nsaids like ibuprofen or aspirin and doesn't increase chances of bleeding or gastric ulcers, and hence is the safest drug to treat minor cases of feverDo not use more of this medication than is recommended. An overdose of paracetamol can cause serious harm. The maximum amount of paracetamol for adults is 1 gram (1000 mg) per dose and 4 grams (4000 mg) per day. Taking more paracetamol could cause damage to your liver. If you drink more than three Alcoholic Beverages per day, talk to your doctor before taking paracetamol and never use more than 2 grams (2000 mg) per day.Aspirin and paracetamol are common over the counter medicines and used to treat common cold , fever and headache etc. Paracetamol is antipyretic (fever reliever) and analgesic (pain reliever) while Aspirin is analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory. chemxpert.in/
