High grade fever with chest congestion, Pneumonia be it bacterial or viral can be considered apart from malaria which now a days does not show classical signs and can present even with chest congestion, so as Dr.Arif suggested, get your husband fully evaluated so that proper treatment can be initiated as soon as possible.I hope he takes things seriously,as people do land up in ICU's with malaria and pneumonia too.

hi stephanie;
your husband may be having viral fever as per your description;here you have not mentioned since how many days he has this fever.If it is since one day then some thing like Tab-CROCIN every 6 hourly can help him;but still i would suggest that you show him to a doctor close to your residence.
