COVID concerns: Your symptoms from COVID 19 may be increasing. Rest, hydration, acetaminophen, decongestant, cough med & nasal saline irrigation may help mild symptoms. Make sure to quarantine. Get emergency care for difficulty breathing, blue lips or face, significant & persistent chest pain or new-onset of confusion.

COVID positive : Your symptoms are shared by others who have the virus. It is also important to know that you can have a sinus or ear infection that is a complication of the virus infection. It would mean antibiotic treatment would help. For that evaluation I would recommend a telemedicine or office visit to review with a provider.
