Virus: These symptoms are consistent with influenza or a flu like virus and there is no worthwhile specific treatment except rest, good fluid intake and Tylenol (acetaminophen) as needed. If symptoms worsen instead of showing gradual improvement, consult your physician for evaluation and a throat culture.
