  • People with diabetes are very prone to yeast overgrowth / candidiasis. If the infection enters the blood stream you might have a fever associated with this. Antibiotics don't kill a yeast infection.

    Web MD says: "Symptoms of an invasive yeast infection can be vague and depend on which part of the body is affected. Common symptoms include fever and chills that continue after you have taken antibiotics."
