Exam: Without detailed physical exam and lab work it is impossible to determine the cause of your fever. See infectious disease physician.

Well, that's a tough: One. You have a fever of uncertain origin, maybe. It seems as though you are checking it a lot though. I would stick with oral temp only. Do you feel bad? Chills, night sweats? Did u get chest x-ray? If not feeling bad and oral temps normal, i would try to get on with it. Cont abx but go just with oral, if normal consider that no fever if having no illness. Keep seeing doc though.
