Tess, your father’s symptoms may fit in with almost any infectious disease. It is not uncommon for people to test negative for malaria if the person doing the test isn’t aware that the patient might have a different form of malaria than falciparum malaria.
Anthrax will have typical skin lesions and a history of contact with infected animals or their products is usually present. The best would be to take him to an infectious diseases specialist and let him sort t out for you. Good luck.
