I woke up with crusty red eyes. Had a fever of 101 3 days ago. Also are stuffy and have a cough and sore throat. What is it?

Several possibles: You could have just a really nasty viral respiratory tract infection to the starts of a sinus infection to strep throat to influenza (although latter is fairly uncommon this time of year). It also sounds like you have conjunctivitis on top of it (the eye symptoms). If viral, these things will run their course in 5-7 days, and you do supportive care of symptoms. If strep or sinus, need antibiotics.

Viral URI: The mucus lining of the eye and of the nose and throat can be simultaneously infected by a virus at the same time. The usual treatments you might take for a cold are in order here. Keep the eyes clean with warm moist cloths but unless the vision is significantly disturbed or the eyes start to become painful, you can probably let this run its course.

Red eyes, croupy noise on inhale, sore throat, irritable. No fever. Does this sound like something to treat at home or to see the doc about on Monday?

Red eyes, croupy noise on inhale, sore throat, irritable. No fever. Does this sound like something to treat at home or to see the doc about on Monday?

Depends: If you were talking about an adult I would say that it sounds viral and just treat it at home and it should resolve in a week. If not see a doctor. However in a 3 year old there are a few other things to consider. If the child is not eating normally or not playing normally then they should probably be seen by a doctor. Any fever or trouble breathing should also prompt a doctor visit right away

Red eye: Most likely allergies, but even if it is " pink eye" your family doctor can evaluate and treat and refer you to an eye doctor if it is something worse. If you have fever over 101 degrees, short of breath, or unable to swallow you need to be checked out.

My 6 year old has a red bloodshot eye gunk in it and dry nasty cough sore throat been like this all day what could I give him what could it be pleas?

Rhinoconjuctivitis: Different causes could lead to this problem. The 1st step is to clean his eyes with regular tap water and have him rinse his nose to clear away mucous. IF symptoms have been present for more that 4-5 days and he's also complained of ear discomfort, you should take him to the doctor because in some cases he may also have an ear infection and need an antibiotic eye drop and even an oral antibiotic.

4 days ago had a sore throat. Lost voice for a day. Coughing. Now, 5 days later both eyes are red and watery. No other symptoms. Could it be Zika?

4 days ago had a sore throat. Lost voice for a day. Coughing. Now, 5 days later both eyes are red and watery. No other symptoms. Could it be Zika?

Zika: Zika is usually mild with symptoms lasting for several days to a week. People usually don’t get sick enough to go to MD and very rarely die of Zika. Thus many don't realize they have been infected. Sx: Fever, Rash, Joint pain, Conjunctivitis (red eyes), Muscle pain, Headache. Pain behind the eyes, Vomiting. Likely you have a virus but see MD.

One of my eyes has discharged to redness or itchy. Is this allergies? I have sore throat and congested.

One of my eyes has discharged to redness or itchy. Is this allergies? I have sore throat and congested.

Possibly: Allergic conjunctivitis causes redness, watering and itching. The conjunctiva (inside of your eyelid) can have a cobblestone appearance. Sinus congestion is also common. If symptoms get better with an antihistamine (benadryl/dihpenhydramine) or Zyrtec/cetirizine) then it's allergies. However, allergies do not usually give a sore throat. Viral URI causes sore throat, congestion, conjunctivitis

Infection: You have a throat infection for 3 days and now the eye is swollen and tearing. It sound like a viral infection and there might be that is not necessary any treatment and will resolve spontaneously.

I have real red eyes, my ears hurt, and really pain full soar throat?

Otitis-Conjunctiviti: Ototis-conjunctiviits syndrome is relatively common and are generally self limited viral infections. However, there are other treatable bacterial causes which can only be diagnosed by a physician. In some cases a culture either of the conjunctiva or throat is appropriate. Either a primary care physician or ophthalmologist would be equipped to evaluate.

I have a really bad sore throat. I also have red crusty eyes. What is it?

I have a really bad sore throat. I also have red crusty eyes. What is it?

Viral infection: The combination of sore throat and crusty eyes is highly suggestive of a viral infection (pharyngitis plus conjunctivitis) for which there is no known treatment that will cure it. Standard advice is to stay well hydrated (drink plenty of fluids), take Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for the pain, and apply hot/wet compresses to your eyes. Then just add a tincture of time.

Just getting over a sore throat and cold. It's pretty much gone. Now both of my eyes are VERY red. No itching or discharge. Very little pain. Any idea?

Just getting over a sore throat and cold. It's pretty much gone. Now both of my eyes are VERY red. No itching or discharge. Very little pain. Any idea?

Red eyes: Are you getting any discharge from your eyes? Could be allergic or viral conjunctivitis. I would try over the counter antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Allegra. Should see your Doctor if it does not improve.
