Throat hurts running nose dry cough do I have an infection?

Maybe... If your symptoms are due to infection, it is likely due to a viral cause so antibiotics will be ineffective. If it is due to a virus, it will run its course over a few days and treatment is aimed at symptom relief. Allergies can also lead to these types of symptoms but your symptoms will tend to last longer and you may notice symptom patterns that your doctor can use to limit the possibilities.
