In brief: Fluids, rest

Low grade fevers are seldom severe symptoms if unaccompanied by other illness.
Use of Aspirin or Acetaminophen (tylenol) can reduce fever if you are uncomfortable. On the other hand many docs feel that fever is beneficial in fighting infection and unless it creates further problems, leave it alone.
