Hi and thanks for the query,
It would be appropriate for a urinary tract infection
or bladder infection) to be excluded in this case. Doing a urinary dip stick, urine culture and sensitivity test could be very appropriate. However, a complete blood test
is important in searching for raised white blood cells which could be an indirect indicator of a bacterial infection. A clinical evaluation by your family physician could be very important in actually orienting the diagnosis, and elucidating the actual cause of the fever
. Other blood tests and even an abdominal ultrasound
could be helpful, depending on the findings of the physical examination.
Thanks and best regards,
