Hi welcome to HCMForum. Fever below 100degrees is difficult to diagnise.
ct scan and other tests cant reveal. it may be due to burning of internal
layers of skin. or may be bedsore due to paraplegia. any how dont worry it
will be cleared in few days. besides i advise you some diet recomendations
as take more of green leafy vegetables pulses sprouts fruitstjuices and
plenty of water to build up resistance and general health. Wishing for a
quick recovery. thank you.

Hi welcome to HCMForum. Human body is a complicated machine.
There is a term idiopathic means un known cause. It is clearly
written in text books as the last cause of the disease. so now
the temperature may be idiopathic or there may be some resi-
-dual infection in deeper layers of tissues. Dehydration may be
other possibility. it may be corrected by its own in a short time.
Besides i advise you some diet recomendations as Give plenty of
water fruits and juices to recover from dehydration. Give more
of green leafy vegetables pulses sprouts to build general health.
wishing for a quick recovery. thank you.
