I think I am starting to get a sore throat. Should i get an antibiotic or is it likely a virus? My wife is pregnant and i don't want it to affect her.

I think I am starting to get a sore throat. Should i get an antibiotic or is it likely a virus? My wife is pregnant and i don't want it to affect her.

Nevertheless, if fever, chills or more symptoms occur see your doctor. Furthermore, it always is best to protect others from exposure if they have not had it yet and that is why we suggest flu shots for the flu. ...Read more

Im pregnant a little more than 2 months an i get hiccups a lot what is the cause and what could i take to get rid of them.? I get the hiccups daily

Hiccups : Hiccups are extremely common in pregnancy. The reasons are due to the increasing amount of air breathed in and out during pregnancy, thus making hiccups more likely to occur. Also acid reflux, common in pregnancy as well contributes as well. The fact that you have them daily could mean you have another issue going on on, possibly a throat or nasal issue (i.e. Post nasal drip). Therefore you should have your primary care provider examine you and further evaluate another possible cause of these daily hiccups other than pregnancy. Best of luck. ...Read more
