Thanks for writing to HCM.
Recurrent infections state a immunocompromised state.
Kindly visit a physician and get the following tests done:
1. Complete hemogram.
2. Urine analysis culture and sensitivity
3. HIV test
3. Blood sugar levels.
4. Chest Xray

Also , on long term steroid usage can lower immunity making the person more prone to infections.
For fever, paracetamol 500mg 6th hourly shall be helpful.
