Thank for asking to HCM
To find out the cause of fiver the complete blood count and blood culture would be needed as you have completed the course of antibiotic so taking antibiotic again is not advisable, complete urine examination with culture sensitivity test would be helpful too, you can discus this with your doctor, hope this information helps you have a nice day.
