Hello.

Thank you for asking at HCM.

I went through your history and would like to make you following suggestions:

1. Viral fever does not need antibiotics.

2. Cough can persist a few days (sometimes a few weeks) after viral fever. I usually treat such cough with a cough syrup.

3. I would also suggest you to take plenty of warm fluids and have good rest.

Hope above suggestions will be helpful to you.

Wish you a quick recovery and the best of the health.

Thank you & regards.
