Infection...: You most likely have an infection and, most of the time, these infections are viral and they will run their course and resolve on their own within 7-10 days. But, if your symptoms are getting worse, then you need to see a doctor because if a bacterial infection is present, you may need antibiotics. Is there another family member who can take you to a doctor, if necessary? How old are you?
