Fever and throat pain
Hello, I've been running a fever with throat pain and bodyache for the last 2/3 days. I take some Crocin & the temperature comes down & the bodyache improves considerably. Once the Crocin wears off, the whole problem starts again. What could the problem be and what else could or should I do to fix it?
