You need to take regular steam inhalations at least thrice daily for a week now. For the stuffy nose, you could try otrivin or Nasivion nasal drops that will clear the nose. Anti-histamines like Zyrtec will help too.

It is not frequently seen that someone has a temperature of 95.2, there seems to be an error in the thermometer. Please re-check it. You probably have a normal or increased body temperature.

Take adequate rest; drink plenty of fluids orally.

You might as well get the temperature recorded by the nurse for an accurate reading.

Get well soon.

I wish your family good health.

Take care.
