hi thank you for posting on HCM after reading about your concern as its second week that your father is having such symptoms I will suggest you to first do blood culture. the reason for this is it will give a better clue for suspectible organism that causing such symtoms. Then next step will be suggesting a specific antibiotic according to bloodculture report.
thanks and take care.
