hello Raymongarrison! Ι have been through your question.

Detailed Answer:
Related your concern I need more information(fever grade, and other pathology).Usually a viral situation last not more than 3-4 days and if this situation persist we should see for complications or other reasons.
What I suggest for my patient in this situation(18 days with fever) is getting hospitalized and have a detailed physical examination by an Infectious diseases specialist, full blood count, blood culture, culture stool,HIV test, lab test for liver and renal function, electrolytes level,abdominal echo and start a prompt adequate treatment. During this time you should take ibuprofen for fever and drink a lot of water, tea and tresol,and take probiotics.
