8 dys ago had minor sore throat & since then mucus, stuffy/runny nose, little cough with mucus fm chest. Fatigue but No fever. Is it cold or sinus infctn?
My little girl has nasal drainage and a cough for last few days with no fever, she had sore throat. I think it's just viral? Sore throat gone.
URI. She may have an upper respiratory infection caused by a virus. Us salt water nose drops and a vaporizer as well as pishing fluids.
Probably right. Many viruses affecting people at this time of year. Some are short lived and others have symptoms lasting for weeks. Probably is viral. If daughter gets worse and has trouble breathing should contact pediatrician. Sometimes viral processes can be complicated by bacterial infections.
How to treat horrible dry sore throat, but no fever, cough, or sneezing and mild mucus drainage in the back of throat. I can barely swallow saliva.?
Dry throat. Many things can cause a dry throat. First look at any meds or supplements. Next look at humidity - you are in a cold area in the winter. Heating systems take moisture out of the air. Get a humidifier. Finally, your state of anxiety/stress can cause a dry mouth - as well as your state of hydration. Drink plenty of water and use tartness (lemon juice, lemon drops) to stimulate your salivary.
Pharyngitis. Try salt water gargles, antihistamines, sore throat sprays. If no improvement see your doctor there are some oral infections that may cause such symptoms.
See your doctor. It could be that you need a humidifier and that gargling with warm salty water (once in the morning and a night) might help with the soreness. But, if you are having a difficult time swallowing, it is likely a good time to visit your doctor so that she or he can look directly at your throat to make sure that there is nothing serious interfering with you ability to swallow.
I've got a dry cough and sore throat. Woke up today with eye discharge. No fever. Any ideas. I just got over a cold 2 weeks ago?
Sore Throat. 90% of sore throats are caused by a virus and are not strep throat. If you are a smoker, do not smoke. Sore throat can be helped with some soothing beverages like orange tea, salt water gargles, use Aleve (naproxen) for pain control, and try some zinc lozenges. You can use a humidifier if you have one. If pain persists, or you get a fever, see a doctor. Stay hydrated as well. Good luck.
My son has has the flu for 6 days should I take tamiflu (oseltamivir) or is it too late for me?? I started symptoms 2 days ago cough and sore throat no fever yet.
Tamiflu (oseltamivir) Tamiflu (oseltamivir) is used to treat influenza A and/or B in people who have had flu symptoms for 2 days or less. It can also be used as prophylaxis (prevention) for people who have a close contact who is positive for the flu but have not yet developed symptoms.
My son hasthe flu for 6 days should I take tamiflu (oseltamivir)? I started symptoms 2 days ago cough sore throat no fever yet. I did have the tummy flu a few day
No. You have probably missed the window for Tamiflu (oseltamivir). It works best if taken within 48hrs of the first symptoms of the flu.
