Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Yes your doctor was right. Head trauma is not the cause of that fever.

It could be a viral fever. A physical examination will help in identifying other causes of fever like pharyngitis, respiratory infection etc

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
