Brief Answer: evaluation by a physician and investigation and Rx Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome to healthcare Magic! Your history and symptoms are suggestive of infection may be viral/bacterial. Water Bourne infections are common after using shared pools especially when eyes/ears are not protected. You need urgent medical attention because water Bourne infections may be very aggressive. Get examined and evaluated by a physician of your locality and ensure early treatment. Antipyretics and broad spectrum antibiotics are good initial choice till the results of investigations are available. I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you. Take Care!

Brief Answer: Get prescription by a local physician Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Welcome back, The feeling of cold in shoulder region on one side and other symptoms you are having may be indicative of infection called lower respiratory tract infection. You should get medicines prescribed by a local physician because online prescription is illegal. Augmentin and decongestant medicine in usual doses are good choice in such cases. I hope the advise will be helpful for you.
