Fever past 3 days

I am suffering from fever for the past three days. Temp ranges from 98.6 to 102. I feel cold in the evening due to sweating and since I do not change the shirt at the right time, I believe I am developing fever coz of that. I do not have body pain, joint pain or muscle pain. My nose is a little runny, I have very slight pain in my throat.
