Hi, i do care for your concern.
your history suggest more of a viral fever.
i would suggest
to start on antibiotic to relieve sore throat and coughing, medicines such as amoxicillin along with antacid would help a lot.
need not panic as this condition would revert back to normal after taking medications.
