Doctor can examine: Such new symptoms can be from strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), stomach or intestinal flu's, or from some other cause such as allergies. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the symptoms are bothersome, recurrent, or don't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep or other treatable infections).
