Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
Fever can be due to many causes. Please send me the investigations done. Get a mantoux test and mycodot for tuberculosis. Also send me your thyroid function test and CT scan for paranasal sinuses.
What medicines are you taking?
I can advise you further only if I know what tests have already been done.
Also tell me do you have any swelling in neck on Palpation? and any other symptoms you have other than fever.
Please send me some details so that I can suggest you better

my son had a mantoux test done early last week. on friday results were negative but on the weekend he came down with very high temp 39.9 which only lowered to 39 after panadol. On sunday we went to clinic presenting with temp, headache and cough. they said it was influenza and gave ibuprofen along with the panadol. Temp is regular most of the time but still has headache and cough. He is getting his wisdom teeth pulled today as surgeon said it would be ok. Is it just influenza or could it be from the mantoux test?
