Any patient having high grade fever is at high risk.In pregnancy that risk increases.
Your wife's liver enzymes are raised.The cause for the deranged liver enzymes and fever needs to be found out.Get urea,creatinine, hepatitis A,B,C,E tested.
The liver dysfunction is causing the itching. Continue the UDILIV 300MG twice a day.
But the cause of the fever is important. also get a urine culture,total count,platelets.
The Monocef injection can be given.It will help controlling the infection.

I had Monocef tablets twice a day for five days for a throat infection along with Tossex cough syrup. During this time period, both my feet were swollen. On consulting the doctor, he advised me to take Avil tablet (morning and evening) for 2 days and the sweeling subsided. Please advise if feet swelling was due to allergic reaction of Monocef tablet or Tossex syrup.
