Hi and thanks for the query.This seems like a viral infection. Now since this is getting better and most viral infections do in 3-4 days, you need not worry. Viral infections are self limiting.I would advise that you drink a lot of water and keep yourself hydrated. If the fever comes back two Tylenol every 6-8 hours will be sufficient. I also suggest that you take some chicken soup as it has proven effects on boosting the immune system.Hope this helps.
