Dr. can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat).

First, : First, your abnormal pap smear wouldn't have anything to do with your dizziness. Your doctor should talk with you about what comes next to deal with this issue. Now, your dizziness could be caused by any number of problems. One way to tell if you're really dehydrated is to check the color of your urine. If you're emptying your bladder several times a day and your urine is pale yellow in color (not dark), you're not dehydrated, and some other explanation for your dizziness must be sought. Anxiety, viral illnesses, anemia, medications or recreational drugs, heart problems, metabolic disorders, and an array of other conditions can cause faintness. If your symptoms don't resolve soon, return to your doctor for reevaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

No. No. No.: Ingested vinegar (acetic acid 3%) does not protect against any illness. If your family is already manifesting signs of illness and you have been in close contact and this is a viral illness you are already very likely exposed and possibly infected. Strep is not really very contagious and does not look like a viral infection at all. Use good handwashing and common sense hygiene. ...Read more
