Thank you for your medical query at
I understand your concern.
The fever seems to be due to an infection that you picked up from Fiji.
Do you have any sore throat/ runny nose/ coughing/ phlegm?
It is important to localise the infection first, before prescribing the medicines.
Do you have any alternate sweating and chills phase? Malaria is common around that area. Were you exposed to a lot of mosquito bites?
Please reply and I will get back to you,

Patient replied :

I did have alot of mosquito bites. Yes I have alternating chills and the sweats. But no cough, no runny nose, no phlegm or sore throat.
