Denis, Denis - 01/14/2014

I am having a low grade fever last two mhnots after a sinus attack and the fever continued. Earlier it used to start from morning and now have every day only from evening till night and never temp above 99.2f. My CBC was ok with ESR of 22. This test was taken on the 20th day after my fevers started and now its past one and half month. I am undergoing homoeopathic treatment and some ayurveda also since did not want to take antibiotics due to some elevated levels of liver enzymes. My tongue also becomes reddish nowadays by evening along with redness in my eyes. I do not have any tiredness or feverish feeling other than by palms and body feeling hot. I am worried and could somebody share their views with me.
