  1. Good evening Amit. In viral fever no antibiotic is going to work.Moreover it is not desirable to take too much medicines in the first trimester.
    It is o.k for her to take Dolo.
    She should drink plenty of fluids in the form of juice , water ,tea with honey.
    She can take
    1.Tab.Limcee 500mgm B.D to suck x 1wk
    2.Cap.Becosule Z 1 cap daily after breakfast x 2wks.
    Do warm saline gurgle.
    Take rest.
    Best wishes.
