Strep v mono: Have you had a swab of your throat for diagnosis? If not, and if you've never had mono before, it could be mono. That would make you fatigued. Your family doc could send you for the blood test. If you have strep, your body just may be fatigued from fighting the infection. Good luck. ...Read more

Depends....: If the bacteria causing the strep throat and bronchitis are sensitive to the azithromycin, then it will treat both. But, because of the bronchiectasis, you may have some lung bacteria that may not be sensitive to azithromycin. So, if the green sputum persists, or if your symptoms worsen, see your doctor again. You may need a sputum culture to find out what bacteria are causing the bronchitis! ...Read more

It is like an asthma exacerbation. You can have your doctor check you and prescribe an inhaler to help until the infection clears. You should also be checked for pneumonia. ...Read more

Acute HIV: Your symptoms are nonspecific and could simply suggest a viral syndrome. However, these are also symptoms of acute HIV seroconversion, and if you had a risk exposure (not sure what you mean by "low") then you should definitely get tested. ...Read more

Sore throat: is often called "strep throat" by patients, but the term strep throat actually refers to a bacterial infection in the throat. MOST sore throats are caused by viruses, however. You should consult with a doctor to discuss which you may have. In the meantime, you can try cough drops, throat lozenges, hot liquids with honey, zinc lozenges, and get lots of rest. ...Read more

Strep throat and just dry cough,no discharge. When lying and sleeping it's better.My doctor didn't hear anything when ascultating.Virus?

Probably: you do not have strep because the doctor did not see white pus pockets or redness. Unless a culture was done it still could be strep though there are many fall time virus which cause a pharyngitis and can irritate your throat causing a cough. If you get worse or higher fever or more symptoms go back to the provider for a re exam ...Read more

URI: Likely just an upper respiratory infection. They are usually caused by viral illness. The treatment is rest, NSAID or acetaminophen as needed for sore throat or fever, increase fluids and possibly salt water gargles/ throat lozenges as needed. If no better in 3-5 days, speak to your doc. Strep can be tested for in office with a swab. It usually has fever, stomach pain and headache as part of it. ...Read more
