Suggest treatment for cough , fever , headache and chills

I've been really sick for 3 days, a terrible, hacky cough, sweaty and very hot, chills, headache, but when I check my temperature, I get 97.2, once 98.1 nothing above. I go to the doctor, they say no fever, nothing to worry about, but I never have a temperature above 97, but I know i have a fever. What is happening?

This sounds like you have a viral illness. Your temperature is no elevated but if ou feel hot then I would recommend you try taking acetaminophen or Tylenol. This will help reduce the feverish feeling and help reduce your chills. For the other symptoms I recommend mucinex which is a cough suppressant and will reduce the hacky cough you have been expereincing
