Hi...... If a fever has been caused by a cold, which is caused by a viral infection, NSAID's may be used to relieve uncomfortable symptoms. Antibiotics have no effect against viruses, but may sometimes be prescribed to prevent secondary infections. Fluid intake - the patient with a fever should consume plenty of fluids (liquids) to prevent dehydration....
