How can fever with a cough and sore throat be treated?

My 14 year old had a high fever 102-103 for 5 days. He also developed a severe cough which is causing him a sore throat. We ve already been to the doctor and he said he thinks it is a virus, but gave us antibiotics just in case and cough syrup. What can I do to help him?

Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to an upper respiratory tract infection. I suggest to continue the medications as prescribed by your doctor. I also recommend to drink liquids and rest.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
