Hi there I understand your concern.... A fever isn't necessarily a cause for alarm. Fever seems to play a key role in fighting infection. Persistent fever can signal a hidden infection, which could be anything from a urinary tract infection to tuberculosis. In some cases, cancerous (malignant) conditions such as lymphomas cause prolonged or persistent fevers, as can some medications..Consult physician they will do the needful.

Hi there.. I can understand your worry.. fever for 3months should be evaluated properly.. she needs intravenous antibiotic injections as oral tablets not working.. she needs to get blood culture and sensitivity then depending on what organism and which antibiotics it's sensitive to, then we can give that antibiotic.. she can get widal test done to see whether she still has typhoid..
