Fever with runny nose, how to manage?
Hello, I am 34 years old. I am suffering from high fever and runny nose. I can not go to my office also. I got infection from my neighbor. It is troubling very badly. Generalized weakness is also there. I am taking rest for entire day. But I have not gone to see any doctor. I am staying in a remote area. It is difficult to get a doctor nearby. Please suggest how to manage.
@dilnaj Prescription medicines, such as antibiotics are not needed to treat a runny nose, which usually gets better on its own. Sometimes, an over-the-counter decongestant medicine may help adults, but might not be appropriate if you have certain conditions or take other medications. Check with your healthcare provider to see what over-the-counter medicines are appropriate for you. Typically, the best treatment for a runny nose includes: Rest. Drink plenty of fluids, especially water.
Use a saline nasal spray to help relieve symptoms. Limit the use of decongestant nasal sprays to no longer than a few days, as instructed on package labels. A cool-mist humidifier at your bedside can combat congestion worsened by dry winter air. Unless recommended by your healthcare provider, don’t give over-the-counter cold medicines to a child under age four.
