  • It is possible. I would probably go see a doctor to make sure. It could be something that needs to be treated. Gl momma.

  • If it's not a flu, which it doesn't sound like, then the fever is most likely due to some kind of infection. Definitely, go see your doctor ASAP! Take care of yourself momma!

  • If you have been running a temp for that many days you need to go to the doc. You could be dehydraded and it sound like to me that that cold could be one of either or both. For the cough go in to the bath room and turn off the hot water for about 20 min. Or it helps to go into the cold night air. but while inside do not put a lot of covers on. Only hold the heat of the temp in. Make a doctor's app asap.
