Virus: The original viral upper respiratory tract infection and probable bronchitis may have cleared and then another viral infection ensued. The subsequent symptoms are not characteristic of a sinus infection as the sore throat suggests a new viral infection. Rest,drink fluids,gargle,take a decongestant like Sudafed or use nasal spray like Afrin. Hold off on antibiotics at this time. See MD as needed.
