i am very much concerned about your sister. you should mention some details for a precise and accurate opinion.please specify her age, duration frequency and variability of fever each day. who and how have diagnosed her as malaria or tphoid fever. also detail the treatment taken, her daily intake and blood eports if any.

malaria and typhoid both are curable. complications delay the cure.
