I've had a red and very sore throat and fatigue for 2 days. Occasional body aches. No fever, coughing, sneezing, or sinus congestion. What is this?

Pharyngitis. Can be caused by bacteria or virus. Most occurrences do not require antibiotic treatment. A quick swab by your doctor or at the urgent care center can determine if you need any treatment at all or if home remedies with common OTC analgesics and warm salt water gargle will surfice.
Sore throat. See your doctor to rule out a strep throat or infectious mono.

Hello. I'm a healthcare worker. Istarted with sinus congestion then a fever. Two day later a cough sore throat. Now productive with a rash.

Sinusitis. Greetings. What you are describing HC sounds like Sinusitis. The rash may be a dermatological manifestation. Otherwise, your descriptions are textbook. See your doctor for confirmation and treatment. Saline nasal wash via NeilMed and then Nasacort (triamcinolone) 2 Sprays each nostril every night can also help. I also recommend Motrin with food. 3-4 tabs 3x/day should help reduce inflammation and pain. Good Luck. Read more...

Dr. can check throat. New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not 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 (mainly to check for strep throat). A couple days of throat lozenges and tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain. Read more...
