Dear Nev
You don't mention how long these symptoms have been going on?? If this is a sudden thing, then you dear Dad may have 'flu or another type of infection. If has been occurring for a long time, then he may suffer from a serious condition like TB or malaria. Please ask your Dad to consult a medical dr ASAP, because he may need medications to stop these fevers.
