I have had diarrhea and fever that doctor said was viral. It has now been 7 days - is that abnormal?

In brief: Revisit

7 days of persistent and unchanging symptoms is too long.
You need to have cultures done to determine infective causes and other intestinal causes that produce your symptoms should be addressed as well particularly if cultures are negative. You should see a gastroenterologist. This is a intestinal specialist.
