Hello friedhm, For an increase in temperature always take symptomatic relief as by paracetamol/acetaminophen. If the temperature does not decrease in couple of days or remains over 104 degree Fahrenheit then consider an examination near a physician and hospitalization for a proper diagnosis. If you have other symptoms like increase in respiratory rate or silent chest, respiratory problems with asthma you would also need to visit a hospital. Take care!
