Hello...... Viral fever subsides on it's own... Only symtomatic treatment is necessary.... ..influenza infection has high contagious ... So you must cover up while sneezing ...steam inhalation twice daily and antihistaminic drugs gives symtomatic relief... Don't take antibiotics ,fever subsides in week or so.
