Dr. can check throat. Throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease the pain. Read more...

Viral syndrome. It sounds like your symptoms are more than you can handle at home. You've tried taking over-the-counter therapies like Paracetamol? You should call your doc since you have dizziness and could be dehydrated. I recommend chicken soup, fluids, and REST until you can be seen.

Sounds like. You need to be seen. You could have a bad strep throat that requires antibiotics or even develop an abscess in the back of your throat. What's also really concerning is your reported stiff neck. As an infection of the head and neck can spread towards the brain(very rare) but a stiff neck isn't quite typical. You'd be best served by an inperson evaluation and sooner rather than later. Read more...

You have. an upper respiratory infection. By far, upper respiratory infections are cause by viruses and usually self limiting - less than one week.
