Brief Answer:
Low grade fever, diet and hydration improvement

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for asking.
I am Dr. Prakash HM and I will be answering your query.
Based on your query, my opinion is as follows:

1. It appears you have might have low-grade fever - possibly a viral infection.
2. Hope there is no cold or nasal congestion. If present, steam inhalation twice daily should help.
3. For low grade fever and headache, paracetamol should help. It can be taken upto 3 times daily, as necessary.
4. However, more importantly, diet should be rich in protein and should be continued like other times. Hydration should be more as she will lose water due to sweating. Increase hydration to 5-6 liters per day or even more as necessary. Fresh fruit juices can also be used to improve hydration.

Need mild mobility and rest can be continued for a day or two. However, diet and hydration should be concentrated upon.

Hope it helps.
Any further queries, here to help again.
