Brief Answer:
You got infection of the Gastrointestinal tract.

Detailed Answer:
As per your description, it looks like you are having infection of the Gastrointestinal tract.
I prescribe Antibiotic like Levofloxacin 250mg tablet twice daily for 5 days,Tablet Metronidazole 400mg twice daily for 5 days along with Pre and probiotic capsule twice daily for 5 days.
Please take Oral rehydration solution thrice daily.
Once the infection is controlled, fever will come down. I add Paracetamol 650mg thrice daily for 5 days if the fever doesn't come down after Antibiotic therapy.
Please consult your doctor, get examined clinically and get appropriate prescription.
Nothing to worry.
It will come down.
Hope I answered your query. If you have any questions, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
