URI symptoms: A head cold with sneezing for 3 days is usually from a viral upper respiratory infection. The definition of fever is a body temperature elevated to 101.5 F or greater, or early on the temp may be over 100.5 and rising. Your head may feel hot, but without the temperature elevation, it's not called a fever. If no fever, it is okay to wait and watch for 2 weeks while using OTC cold remedies.
