Throat itches/burns, and hurts to swallow, accompanied by a non-productive cough, body aches, fatigue. Temperature is only in the 99's?

Probable flu. Symptoms you describe appear to be viral. Cannot totally rule out a bacterial cause. Common cold usually does not cause extensive aches/pains. You might find that your temperature goes higher at night. The best thing to do is stay away from others to keep them well, gargle with regular Listerine, use Lozenge with benzocaine, take vitamin C and OTC cough medicine. Not improved in 2 days see MD.
