Patient : I have 100 F degree fever and a sore throat as well as infrequent coughing. I have planned for two weeks to go skiing today. Skiing can be viewed as a milder type of exercise. Can I still go or do I have to sit this one out? If I go, is it recommended that I take ibuprofen and bring my temperature monitor with me? I also have a lot of mucus coming out of my throat.
