Brief Answer:
Please upload the reports.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Healthcaremagic.

I have gone through your query but the information is not adequate to arrive at a diagnosis. ESR is a non-specific marker of illness and can also be increased simply with increase in age. I would need to know the blood counts, especially the WBC count and its distribution. It would clarify if the infection is viral, the most likely cause.

I would request you to please share/upload the blood counts reports at the reports section and I would guide you accordingly.
