Brief Answer:
Likely viral infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your query and understand your concerns.

Sounds like a viral infection that is causing your symptoms, especially if you experienced fever too.

It is necessary to monitor your fever for a couple of days, to take plenty of fluids.

Ibuprofen thrice/ daily but not more than 2-3 days, besides Tylenol could help improve body aches.

If the symptoms persist after few days (3-4 days) and the coughing becomes more intense, you should consult with your primary care Doctor and get evaluated about possible upper respiratory tract infection.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Greetings.
