Thanks for the query.
There are many causes of fever like viral,bacterial or other systemic diseases.

So it is not possible to tell one single cause for fever without testing for blood or radiological investigations.

Get blood tested for malaria and dengue.Also get a chest x-ray,ESR and HB,CBC and urine test.

This will help to come to a provisional diagnosis.

Hope this helps you.

Thank you.
