Gudcef is cefpodoxime which is an antibiotic from the cephalosporin group .

It has no role for the malaria prophylaxis and treatment, I do not think so your husband is suffering from malaria as malaria has very high fever and mostly is intermittent.

I think he is having viral infection, complete blood count is advisable.
