Viral: These symptoms are consistent with influenza or a flu like viral upper respiratory tract infection. At this time I recommend resting, good fluid intake and the use of Tylenol. If not gradually improving or if higher fever, deep productive cough, shortness of breath or wheezing see a physician.
