Brief Answer:
Probably a viral infection, follow the advice below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms seem to be related to a viral infection.

I suggest using medication to relieve the symptoms.

I suggest using anti inflammatory medication for the fever such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day.

I also suggest using cough expectorants such as Mucinex.

I suggest to drink liquids and rest.

If the symptoms continue I recommend doing a complete blood count and a chest x ray to exclude a lung infection.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
