Sick for two weeks, really sore throat and coughing up mucus. Dad looked at throat and said was red. Have chest pain. Mom thinks doctor visit is a no.
Minor but annoying throat infections will often self heal in about a week. Any illness that lasts longer than that - especially if not showing any signs of improvement - should be seen by an MD to determine the cause and possible treatment that might help. In teens with prolonged throat infection I often evaluate them for Mono.
