Patient :I went to Peru a little over a week ago and when I came back I had a fever of 101.5. It went down to about 99.6 after two days, but it's stayed elevated at 99.6 for the last seven days. My only other symptoms are a stuffy nose and a headache and that could just be allergies or a cold. Should I be concerned by the slightly raised tenperature? Thanks
