How to use the Doctor is IN

This new feature of TheFilipinoDoctor.com displays a switch panel on your log in page.
On the center of the switch panel, you will find the switches for IN and OUT.

To set your availability for the day, click or tap on either the IN or OUT panel on the switch that you find on your log in page.  This will automatically set all the switches corresponding to every schedule you have for the day.  To avoid misinformation, these settings are good only for the day. 

To set your availability for week, click or tap on the link under the panel that reads Set your availability for the week.  This will open your clinics and schedules on the lower part of the current page.  You can now individually set to IN or OUT each of your schedules for the entire week.  To avoid misinformation, these settings are good only for the current week. 

All settings for both day and week will reset to “blank” after the day or week is over.

Thank you!

Doctors to Consult
Overview

Fever is often a sign of infection, inflammation, or illness. It occurs when temperature rises above 37.7 degrees celsius. A "significant fever" is usually defined as an oral or ear temperature of 39 degrees celsius. Most cases of fever are self-limiting.

Doctors may recommend fever-reducing medicines only when the temperature is at 38.8 degrees celsius. Otherwise, supportive treatments are recommended. On the other hand, the underlying cause of the fever (for example, infection) should be treated. Antibiotics are given to eradicate the infection thus, lowering the fever.

Symptoms
  • Body temperature of 37.8 degrees celsius and above
  • Sweating; shivering
  • Headache; muscle aches
  • Poor appetite
  • General weakness
  • Uncontrollable crying (babies)
  • Shallow breathing
  • Flushed look; rashes
  • Very high fevers (39 degrees celsius- 41 degrees celsius) may cause hallucinations, confusion, irritability, and even convulsions.

Assessing a baby's fever

Under the following conditions, a child's fever should be considered serious and must be immediately brought to a doctor:

  • Age less than 2 months old
  • 40.5 degrees celsius on a rectal thermometer
  • Convulsions
  • Baby keeps on crying especially when touched or moved
  • Spots or rashes
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • History of chronic illness
  • Signs of dehydration: infrequent urination, dark yellow urine, scant tears and saliva, and dry lips, or sunken eyes and fontanel
  • A fever that does not subside despite medication
Risk Factors
  • Infections (colds, flu, sore throat, boils, etc) and other disease states
  • Dehydration, heat exhaustion, extreme sunburn
  • Certain medications (antibiotics, antihypertensive and anticonvulsants)
  • Certain types of tumors and cancers.
  • Skin problems such as injuries and cuts
  • Immunization
Commonly Prescribed Drugs
Treatment and Management
Home Remedies
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Get enough rest.
  • Wear comfortable, light clothing.
  • Bathe in lukewarm water.
  • Monitor temperature every 2 to 4 hours.
  • If the temperature exceeds 39 degrees celsius, a sponge bath may bring the temperature down. Check body temperature every 30 minutes.
  • To address the underlying cause of fever, see a doctor.
