Answered by Dr. Ivo Ditah 15 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Probably a viral infection. Take tylenol 1000mg every 6-8hours!

Detailed Answer:
HI and thanks for this query.

You probably have a viral infection responsible for these symptoms. Best way forward is to get some rest, drink much fluids and take tylenol 1000mg every 6-8hours for effective fever control. Resolution would be complete within 7-10days.

There is no need for a doctor's visit at this time. Also, stop Aleve and go with tylenol-for safety reasons.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Keep me updated in 48hours on how you are doing.

Brief Answer:
Yes, you can return to work!

Detailed Answer:

You are not contagious from a distant and you do not need to be kept away from the public. Keep personal hygiene at best and avoid excessive interactions with others. That will be okay.

I wish you well.
