I have had a fever for three days. My temperature has ranged from 100-102. This morning my temperature was 98.6 but it is around 99.5 now. I returned to work and I am not sure if it is too soon to be back at work.
How long does it take for a fever to pass? I went to the doctor and he said I have an upper respiratory infection. The main symptom is stuffy nose.
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 5 years ago.
An upper respiratory tract infection (URI) can take 3-5 days to resolve completely. Since your temperature is proceeding towards normal and if your symptoms have completely resolved or are mild and you are feeling good, you may start work.
It is privilege assisting you.
