4 days ago I was in bed with fever for

4 days ago I was in bed with fever for a day. Now I have a sinus infection with thick globs of yellow mucus. (No runny nose, no sore throat) Also coughing up thick mucus globs. How do I determine if it is bacterial and would responds to antibiotic, or viral?
I also have a gum infection (no pain if I don't chew), but my upper molar (close to my sinuses) is loose and bleeds when I brush, there is swelling around the root. This flared up at the same time. Can these two infections feed each other?
I am not in my home state so I can not go to urgent care or doctor, but I am concerned about flying home in this condition.

goodevening...i suffered from chicken pox exactly 3 weeks ago and since then i have kept a check on my fever. my problem since then is that my fever keeps coming back every evening around 5-6 and stays till around 11:30. at the other times of the day my temperature is normal. even at night my temperature is normal. also my chicken pox spots went away in the normal period of 7 days and did not give me much of a trouble. i have been taking multivitamins since 5 days now but still no help. i do not have any other symptoms but only this fever which keeps coming back in the evenings.also my fever does not exceed 99F. it only fluctuates between 37.1 and 37.2.also i just feel a little weak but that really is not a big problem which affects me. i feel it could be my recovery from the viral. basically fever is my main problem. i am really worried abt this now. please can you help me with some answer?

I was diagnosed with Pericarditis almost two months ago and have been using NAIDS (Ibuprofen) and have been in bed rest most of the time. I m still experiencing lassitude, low level fever, sweating at night. Some days I feel back to normal only to have another wave and a repeat. How long can I expect this to go on for? Is there anything more I can do to assist in the healing of this condition? Is this condition dangerous or life threatening?
