Hello. Thanks for writing to HCM
There can be many causes of high grade fever
, in case of your nephew there is a clue in the form of presence of sore throat
. Now sometimes the organisms causing this can be resistant to common antibiotic or they could be viral, which are non-responsive to antibiotics. The best way to approach these is to ask for a culture and antibiotic sensitivity. Your doctors are absolutely correct in asking for scans and relavant blood tests. so, please cope with them and do as suggested. Remember, this is a passing phase and will get over with proper medication.
