I'm suffering from severe cold and mild fever 99.2f including headache and ear pain for past 4days.consult 2 doctors but still im not recovered.

Colds are caused by viruses, and there is no cure. Your immune system has to get over the infection on its own. Medicines can be helpful for symptoms, but they will not make the illness resolve any faster. Get plenty of rest, stay hydrated, feel better! ...Read more
