Hello and welcome to HCM

Viral infections are associated with fever, body aches, malaise, weakness and decreased appetite.
If you have got it confirmed from a doctor that the symtoms that you are experiencing are due to viral infection then you need to take some general measures as follows:
1. Take rest. Viral infections take around 7-10 days to clear.
2. If fever appears take paracetamol tablet 500mg.
3. Maintain good hydration by taking fluids, soups, juices, etc.
4. Take high calorie food at regular intervals.

If the symptoms do not decrease after a period of 7-10 days then visit your doctor.
You may be having some other problem.
Diagnosis can only be made after clinical examination and investigations.

Thanks and take care
