Hi, thank you for posting.

The symptoms you refer shows us an inflammation initially with flu status, although he is sick shows us an bacterial inflammation and it needs an antibiotic treatment. Elevated SGPT shows an acute(of a disease or its symptoms, severe but of short duration) liver disease. This requires a control of liver by sonography and by repeating blood test. Also both medicaments that are used are known as injurious of liver, and this treatment should not continue for too long. I think that fever is caused by bacteria and the treatment should contain antibiotic for some days.

Take Care of him.
