Viral fever

I would like to know if I have to undergo any types of blood test for my viral fever... I have a continuous headache, cough and cold. Normally I asked my doc if blood test was necessary.. But he said against it..what are the blood tests I have to undergo.

Well..from how many days are you having these symptoms.. If its more than 5 days then you can get cbc done and depending on that we can see if other tests are required... Drink loads of water,have food can take paracetamol for fever and any antihistamines like cetrizine for relief.. Also take steam atleast 3 times in a day
