Virus: This suggests a viral upper respiratory tract infection which usually runs its course in a week. Allergies are unlikely in view of the presence of fever. Treatment consists of resting, drinking adequate fluids,taking acetaminophen for fever. If fever persists or if deep cough with discolored sputum develop, see your physician. Also persistence or worsening of symptoms over a week warrant an exam
