Dx viral pharyngitis prescription Mucinex (guaifenesin) & flonase. Draining today earache sore throat and 101.2 temp. Still have fever body aches. Advice? Baby has cold too
Urgent care: With a fever and "draining" (I'm assuming your ear?), I would recommend you see your doc or go to an urgent care clinic for a proper physical examination, including an examination of the ear, surrounding structures, and your nose and throat.

I just finished a ten day bottle of augmentem for flu/cold, today, the first day off I woke up with a sore throat & very rundown. I feel sick again!
Viral symptoms: Sounds like you have a viral infection. Not sure why you were given Augmentin for a cold or flu since these are caused by a virus and cannot be treated by an antibiotic. Symptomatic care with tylenol, (acetaminophen) rest, increased fluids and humidity are the usual treatment for a virus and getting the flu shot in the fall to prevent. If you have a fever that does not improve with this you should see a doctor. ...Read more

Right side of my throat hurts no flu or cold symptoms just sore throat its not scratchy its painful hurts to swollow what could I take?
Have it checked out.: It depends on the degree of the pain- does it compromise your ability to breath, or are you gagging or choking because of the pain? If so, it merits an evaluation. Are you able to consume fluids without issue? If so, good, but if not, then an evaluation is worth it. The reaason for my advice is that a one sided pain on swollowing suggests a potentially focal process that can be evaluated. ...Read more

Secondary infection: The common cold is a viral illness affecting the upper respiratory tract. It is possible to develop a secondary infection with a bacteria since your immune system is weakened from the cold and usually occurs shortly after the cold improves.

I had severe flu like symptoms, broke the fever, now I have a very sore throat. Cold air makes it worse. Lots of congestion. All started last thursday?
If this is true influenza, the most reliable treatment is about 50 grams of vit c given IV but few docs offer this. Sambucol, an elderberry extract, is proven to help. My favorite treatment is homeopathy- the right remedy can be magic! For help finding it see: http://www. Flusolution. Net/remedies. Htm

I have, sore throat, chills and fatigue which disable me from getting out of bed, but normal temp 36.8. Is this more likely to be flu or common cold?
Hard to guess: New throat pain can be strep throat (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antivirals may be 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 (to see if a prescription is needed). With chills and lots of fatigue, it's more likely a flu-like illness or strep throat. ...Read more
