Uri. You probably have an upper respiratory infection. Ibuprofen is usually helpful.
What do I have with the following symptoms-sore throat, bad cough, chest and back is hurting, low grade fever, and fatigue?
Flu season. You have a cold or the flu, but now with a secondary strep throat or pneumonia. You should contact your family physician.
Work nurse said wife has a sinus infection. She had been taken biaxion and throat lounges. She has sinus drip, fever comes and goes. Sore throat. Any ideas?
She needs to see. Her physician or ear, nose, throat specialist. Might not be the right antibiotic since fever is recurring. The sore throat and postnatal drips are from her allergies. She needs to take any decongestant histamines with topical nasal sprays. Fever control for now till she sees md.
I have had a sore throat for a week now along with a cough it gets worse when I smoke and I coughed up green mucus. Sinus infection or throatt cancer?
Stop smoking. One week of throat pain is not an indication that you have throat cancer. But if you continue to smoke, it is possible that some day that may occur. You are only 18 and the symptoms are more consistent with an upper respiratory tract infection, which can be made worse by smoking. Smoking at your age is bound to cause increased infections and decreased immunity. Try to stop.
Two parts. Part one: Go to your local, regular MD and discuss the symptoms and see if they can help you. It is statistically most likely an infection of some sort. Part two: Clearly you are worried about cancer and admit in your question you are smoking. It might be reasonable to guess you know you should quit. It is hard to quit. Try to get help from the doc too. Having that support really helps success.

Suggest consultation. If you wish to chat privately with one of the HealthTap physicians, please request a consultation form your patient support or HealthTap support and you will be connected for a visit.
Be seen. For a good exam and a diagnosis with appropriate treatment. All the best.
Probably viral so... This is almost certainly a viral infection. Most doctors won't be able to offer anything besides symptomatic relief. I advise Umcka, available at any health food store and some pharmacies, an herbal medicine proven to help sinus infections. Also try Andrographis, Astragalus, Vitamin C, Zinc lozenges., rest and fluids. Best to not try to lower the fever. If not better in a week then see a dcotor.
