Fever with shivering may be due to malaria and urinary tract infection. If the malaria test is negative you can do investigation for urine infection. If we treat the urinary infection properly then the fever will stop. You can give paracetamol every 6th hourly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
