My wife is allergic
ibuprofen reduces fevers. That might be why you're asking this question. While reducing the fever or aches, ibuprofen doesn't kill any bacteria.
Antibiotics work by killing bacteria like strep throat, ear infections, and so forth, which does cause a fever to stop after the infection is dead. Always take all of your antibiotic. Many people begin to feel good after taking a few pills, and stop taking the antibiotic. The bacteria is not dead and comes back worse and is harder to kill.
I hope that this helps and good luck.
