Hi

Greetings from Dr.Divakara. P
Thanks for posting your query.

Its due to infection that too a bacterial infection. You need to be started on Antibiotic therapy. Kindly ask your doctor for an Antibiotic prescription.

Also you need to undergo certain test to know what infection you have got. In that regard I would advise the following tests :

Complete Hemogram, IgM Typhi Dot, Smear for Malaria parasite, Urine routine, SGPT,SGOT.

Revert back to me with the reports.
