Brief Answer:
Need diagnosis, may need antibiotic

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
I am sorry that you are having these problems. You may need an antibiotic. It sounds like you could have an ear infection, sinusitis or bronchitis. The important thing is to see a doctor and get a good exam to determine what the problem is and what antibiotic or other treatment might be best to treat your infection. A fever for two weeks is concerning so please see a doctor as soon as possible.
Thanks for consulting HCM.
