Brief Answer:
Could be a viral

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

This could be a viral. What is your age? What other symptoms do you have and since when? Do you have any other medical conditions.

Please post more details about your symptoms so that I am better able to help.

For an adult with a viral fever and fever more than 102, I usually prescribe Tab Paracetamol 500 mg every eight hours. Also drink more water.

Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Vaishalee
