I have a question about possible cold like symptoms. Is it possible to be symptoms of an std?

Probably not: Of course, "cold symptoms" can mean many things. Typical sx of cough and runny nose are NOT sx of STI. Most STI symptoms are "local" (genital) and include rash, itching, discharge, or pain. That said, it is possible that an isolated "sore throat" could be a symptoms of something more serious like gonorrhea, but unlikely. ...Read more

Can you please tell me about the actual symptoms of the flu and how do they differ from those of a common cold?

Sicker with flu: With true influenza, in addition to the runny/stuffy nose and congestion, you also get a much worse cough, chest tightness, fever is much higher and much more of headaches and body aches with influenza. While a cold is irritating and you feel under the weather, influenza makes you feel like you have been hit by a truck and run over again! ...Read more

I am sick with cold like symptoms. I noticed a bump under the skin in my groin area. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Get it checked out: Feeling sick with lump in groin is concerning for HIV or bacterial infection with klebsiella granulomatis is possible, often starts as small, painless nodules appearing after 10–40 days following contact with the bacteria. Later the nodules burst, creating open, fleshy, oozing, and infection continues to destroy the tissue until treated. Not to scare u, but should consult doc for eval. Good luck. ...Read more

Is there anything that can cause a 3 year old to have cold like symptoms for 2 1/2 months?

Allergies: If it is really 2 1/2 months straight without any break in the symptoms at all, it's not likely that it was "colds" but rather allergies. These could be to foods or environmental exposures. A good history and exam by her pediatrician or family physician can differentiate the two, and then appropriate treatment can be initiated. ...Read more

I have cold like symptoms and I feel nauseous and have a slight fever and have body aches. Could it be the flu?

Possible: It is flu season, and your symptoms are consistent. Even if it is, don't worry. The flu is usually not dangerous unless you are an infant or someone over 90. There is no treatment, and no cure. Just rest and drink lots of fluids, and you should recover just fine. Hope this helps! ...Read more

What causes me to have cold like symptoms everyday? Everyday I am sneezing and blowing my nose constantly whether I am at home or at work.

Allergies.: That sounds like allergies. Nasal congestion, runny nose, cough, headache, facial pains and earache can be triggered by fragrances, dust mites (sweeping the floor), grass, trees, pets, environmental molds and such. There are outdoor and indoor allergens. OTC nasal steroid and nasal saline are worth a try. If this doesn't help, visit your doctor to make sure you're not infected. ...Read more

The roof of my mouth is hurting and I have cold like symptoms, bus this has just started today and have been progressively getting worse.?

2 separate problems: 1. Seasonal Flu- usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. 2. Mouth sores (aphthous ulcers) are painful sores inside the mouth. The sore may be painful for three or four days, but complete healing usually takes ten to fifteen days. Canker sores may recur many times each year. No cure is available. If concerned see your PCP after a few days. ...Read more

Do I have pneumonia? I have been sick since the third of february. I have cold like symptoms, chills, sweating, pain on the right side of my chest, for 3 days my body ached very badly (is no longer aching), shortness of breath, haven't really been coughin

Do I have pneumonia? I have been sick since the third of february. I have cold like symptoms, chills, sweating, pain on the right side of my chest, for 3 days my body ached very badly (is no longer aching), shortness of breath, haven't really been coughin

Symptoms: Symptoms of pneumonia can include shortness of breath (especially when expending energy) and coughing. The cough could bring up sputum that is mixed with blood or sputum that is brown, green or yellow. Sweating with clammy skin, fatigue, fever and chills, exhaustion and vomiting can also occur. Since you are still ill after ten days, you should see your doctor. It can be hard to distinguish the flu from pneumonia but your doctor can listen to your lungs, get a good history and possibly take a chest x-ray to help with the assessment. If you only had the flu, would have expected it to have resolved already. ...Read more

yes: Paracetamol is a Motrin like drug. It helps with aches and fever.Theres nothing magical about Motrin, vitamin c, tea or even soups (they are warm liquids that serve as an effective expectorant)the cold otherwise will take its course.
