Is sore throat a pregnancy symptom? I have had an aching throat for about a week.

Not usually. It is far more likely to be a symptom of either allergies, or a viral or bacterial throat infection. Try an over the counter antihistamine, and if you develop high fever or inability to swallow, call your doctor. If you have missed a period and believe you could be pregnant, take a pregnancy test. hope this helps! Read more...

I've been having symptoms of coughing sore throat body aches for 5 days and dayquil is not working. What OTC should I take to get rid of it?

Nothing. This sounds like the flu. No over the counter medications will get rid of the flu, cold, or a bacterial sinus/throat/lung infection. They do help with easing the symptoms though. Any of them are good for that. Chloraseptic spray is good for the throat. And you're too late for tamiflu (oseltamivir) which can shorten the duration a little. Generally, you just have to deal with it. Flu lasts 10-14 days usually. Read more...
