Detailed Answer:
hello.
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your message.
I need more details.

First , you said temperature is 103.
which means the temperature is high.
Then you said skin is cold.
Please clarify since the two things cannot happen simultaneously.

Second , there is a history of passing out. please tell us more about this in detail.

Third, how was the uti diagnosed? have you met a doctor? what do they say? what's her BP?

Fourth, what are her comorbidities? Diabetes etc? Any regular medicines? Except asthma that you mentioned. Medications?

Fifth. Any reports?

As of now it sounds like sepsis with septic encephalopathy, due to uti. And she may need admission for iv antibiotics.

Please let us know the details.
Dr Mittal
