Doctor can evaluate: For minor illnesses like a cold virus, fever and aches go away by themselves. Most people use over-the-counter drugs like Tylenol (acetaminophen), Motrin, or Advil for relief of such symptoms. If a person has a strep throat infection or other bacterial infection, antibiotics are the treatment. A doctor can evaluate to look for a diagnosis, especially if a person has had 4 days of moderate fevers. ...Read more

Seeing a : Healthcare provider to properly examine and treat your pharyngitis would be the wisest thing to do. At this stage it is very likely a bacterial infection, with the night sweats possibly an indication for hospital visit due to higher probability of septicemia (bacterial infection of the blood). I would not wait, go to the ED to get proper care. ...Read more

Hope that helps. ...Read more

Viral syndrome: The summertime is a virus playground. There are many subtle viruses that present with low grade fever, malaise, headache and even some that can give a sore throat, that might limit his appetite. If his fever stays low grade, and just these subtle symptoms, it is safe to wait three days with acetaminophen, ibuprofen and a lot of extra fluid and let the body do its work to fight it. ...Read more

Are hiv symptoms possible just four days after possible exposure . And just last for just 1 day? Symptoms were vomiting , fever , diarrhoea. Thankyou
Not possible: Acute HIV symptoms cannot start sooner than 7-10 days after exposure and never would clear up in under 1-2 weeks. Sounds like you had a garden variety viral gastroenteritis like norovirus. If your partner 4 days earlier had it or was a carrier, you could have caught it from him or her. But for sure this isn't HIV or any other standard STD. ...Read more

The : The fact that you have a headache and stiff neck are worrisome. If a fever is present then it is really concerning.

If not, and you still have symptoms you should seek medical attention right away. ...Read more
Hi doctor. I am having mild fever for past four days that comes and goes with headaches and nausea.
Cannot diagnose: But this does not sound entirely benign and suggest that you see a doctor asap, particularly if you have fever, sensitivity to light, sound or have any other symptoms. With mitral valve prolapse you are at risk of having endocarditis (heart valve infection), and other possibilities may include meningitis (now chronic after 4 days). Please go and see somebody (use er if necessary) right away. ...Read more
