About fevers...: For minor illnesses like a cold, fevers go away by themselves. Most people use over-the-counter drugs like Tylenol (acetaminophen), Motrin, or Advil for relief of such symptoms. If a person has had prior infections more than usual, or is looking sickly, she can recheck with her doctor. Each case is individually decided upon regarding the need for exams and lab tests. Hard to predict one's future.
