Hello dear,

The symptoms as mentioned in your post can be attributed to either viral fever or Respiratory tract infection.

Investigations like complete blood count, peripheral smear for malaria, Dengue check and X-ray of chest will be helpful in clinching the diagnosis.

As the cough is still persisting, management includes:
1. Steam inhalation.
2. Anti-tussive preparation for symptomatic control of cough.
3. Antibiotics depending upon culture & sensitivity reports.
4. Antihistamine preparations can also be used to provide symptomatic relief.
5. Maintain adequate hydration & a healthy balance diet.
6. Also make sure that you are well protected from cold, dust & other allergens.

Your symptoms will be relieved with this.
So, kindly consult your General Physician & start treatment as advised.
Wish you good health & a speedy recovery.
Take care.
