Looks Viral fever.

Detailed Answer:
Hi. Welcome to Healthcare Magic. I am Dr Anshul Varshney for your help.

You seem to be suffering from Viral fever. Viral fever usually takes 5 days to get settled.

In my opinion you should take Tab Paracetamol 650 mg thrice daily for next 2 days and an anti allergic like Levocetrizine for cough.

Do warm saline gargles.

If your fever doesn't respond in next 2 days we shall go for the tests.

I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query please ask me.
