Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

welcome!!

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that with the symptoms that he is having i.e. shaking and slightly delirious, unstable on his feet you should take him to the emergency.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that he should be admitted to a hospital and will require proper investigation.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Most likely this infection is in the bloodstream which is causing all this to happen and will require intravenous antibiotics if this is an infection.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So the bot***** *****ne is that you should take him to the emergency and get him admitted.

Dr. Shahzad MD :
