Low grade fever with cold, headache, burning nose and throat. Fever not going with medication. Reason?

I have a cold . It started Thursday with a headache and then Friday the burning nose and throat and low grade fever started. Sinuses were awful. My temp only gets to about 99.4. Well it s been 5 days now and this low grade fever won t go away. It goes from 97.4 (my norm is around there) to 98.8 and occasionally 99.4. Up and down all day regardless of medicine. I can usually break the fever by day three. Why won t it go away? Plus why have I been foggy headed and my valance has been off since last night? I have a trip planned this weekend I must go on and I need this fever gone. Please help! Thanks!
