There might be clues -such as if anyone else in the household was diagnosed with Strep? Certainly a virus is possible, but without a throat culture and proper evaluation, you're guessing. For now, hot drinks, rest, tylenol (acetaminophen) for symptoms. I make a hot honey-lemon drink with ginger ...Read more

All connected : If you get out an anatomy picture of your head you will see that your throat, nasal passages, and eye sockets are all connected. So when you have fluid in one of those spaces it not infrequently migrates to another. So sorry but that's our anatomy. The good thing is that "colds" are time limited infections. It will get better on its own. ...Read more

My throat has mucus running down the back and it hurts, I have a slight headache, what is wrong with me? What medicine should I take
Sore : Sore throat is a fairly common symptom associated with many illnesses. Most of the time it resolves on its own without any other issues. Occasionally it can be due to something more serious that needs treatment. Reasons to seek care are: - any fever - since it could be strep and you can't tell without an exam/testing - if it lasts longer than 3 or 4 days - any difficulty opening your mouth - unable to swallow - severe pain - bleeding in the throat - redness or swelling on the outside of the neck - any difficulty breathing or noisy breathing in the meantime, taking Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen for pain, drinking plenty of fluids such as hot tea/broth or cold liquids and a spoonful of honey can help. These have all been shown to be as effective (and safer!) than most over-the-counter medications. Our grandmas really did know best! ...Read more
