Coronavirus: Small children can get coronavirus. First self-isolate. If your daughter's symptoms get worse please go to a Doctor to find out what type of virus or infection you have and get the right kind of medication or call an ambulance to take you to the emergency room of the nearest hospital to get tested.

Evaluation: Prolonged cough should be evaluated. Please monitor temperature, provide fluids and schedule an appointment with your PCP. A chest image is indicated to rule out pneumonia, and nasal saline will help to reduce post nasal drip. She may have a sinus infection of a lower respiratory tract infection. Please follow up.

A 29-year-old male asked:

I have sore throat, headache, bodyache, mild fever. Is it a bacterial or viral infection? I had a flu shot last month.

Could be either: The symptoms you describe could indicate either a bacterial or viral infection; although statistically, viral infections are more common. An examination will be important. The fact that you had a flu shot is great but flu shots only protect against the 2-4 worst strains of influenza flu for that season; it doesn't protect against the thousands of other strains of flu. Best to see your doctor.

It burns when I pee, all STD test came back clean had a yeast infection but was told too use Monistat 7. Still have the burning pain ! ! ! !?

Many possibilities: If a yeast infection is causing the burning, Monistat cures many but not all yeast infections, another med may be needed. Urine culture can identify bladder infection. Spasm of muscles in the pelvis especially the tiny muscles around the urethra can cause burning. Skin infection other than yeast, including herpes can have subtle signs but cause significant burning.
