Hi, 45 year old healthy female. Have been battling a cough (clear mucous and runny nose since last Sunday 6 days now). Fatigued for Monday - Wednesday where I could manage to drive my son to school and then had to lie down all morning. I could take my dog for a short walk but my chest felt very heavy. No fever those first few days. Now have a fever for the last three days but only in the afternoon and late night and it goes from 99.5-102.5. No sore throat at all. Cough has become drier. I am trying to figure if it's bacterial or viral bc I don't want to waste my time at the dr if they cannot give me anything for it. How long is it ok to wait out the fever. As I said it comes around 2:30 and ranges from 99-102.5 until bedtime. I wake up fever free.

Ears have felt closed but no pain and no pain in my sinuses. Just an annoying cough and it feels like there is constant mucous in the back of my throat, my BP is 120/70, my heart rate is 90 per minute.

Since no other symptoms, this is still likely viral.

Viruses are more aggressive this year for unknown reason.

Corona virus, adeno virus, even flu virus can cause protracted symptoms.

Dry cough can be due to the viral bronchitis.

IBuprofen can be use along with dextromethorphan.

If symptoms continue till early next week, then bacterial infection may be suspected.

Otherwise you can still treat this at home with rest, fluids, vitamin C, ecchinacea tea.

Ok thank you. Just entered the wonderful world of kids bringing home everything from school so was pretty sure it was viral since there is no pain anywhere. Just excessive congestion.
Doctor: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 2 years ago

Yes I second that :)

But nothing to worry about.

Best wishes

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
