Treat symptoms, nasal saline may be helpful in relieving nasal congestion. Treat fever with Tylenol and monitor breathing. If there are signs of distress, please seek medical attention. The cough may linger, and if present at three weeks, discuss a ches image and evaluation with your physician. The OTC cough medications have potential side effects but may be used judiciously.
