Fever That Never Heals?
Hello my name is Irfan, I have almost 2 weeks of fever which always recurs and also often nausea. After checking the blood to the doctor everything is safe the results are negative types the doctor just said exposed to the virus, I guess why?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to make sure in advance, do you really have to measure body temperature objectively using a thermometer? You can be said to have a fever if your body temperature rises above 37.5 degrees Celsius.
If indeed you have a fever and your fever has gone up and down for 2 weeks, then some possible diagnoses include:
infections such as tuberculosis, malaria, typhoid, HIV, hepatitis, or more rarely, can also be caused by certain fungal or parasitic autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, vasculitis, etc. certain malignancies or cancers If indeed after 2 weeks your fever does not improve , it helps you check yourself to the doctor of internal medicine so that further evaluation can be done. Make sure you tell your doctor if you have a history of traveling to malaria endemic areas (or you currently live in malaria endemic areas), and also if you have risk factors for sexually transmitted infections (such as a history of unsafe sexual intercourse) ).
For now, you can relieve your fever by taking fever medicines like paracetamol. To find out the most appropriate therapy to deal with your illness, the source of the fever must be known in advance.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
