Having a low grade fever and headache

I am 28 years old and have been sick since Friday. I have been running a low grade fever and feel like I am dying. I have no health insurance or money to go to the doctor. My snot is a yellowish brown color and has an awful odor and when I sniff the nastiness runs down the back of my throat. I also have a headache but can not get rid of the illness. Please help

Hello Dear
Thanks for your query
You seem to have upper respiratory tract infection and sinusitis as well.You need to visit a doctor rather than self medicate.
Take Paracetamol 500mg tablet twice daily for 5 days and there after sos . Tablet CoAmoxiclav 625mg thrice daily for 5 days. Tablet levocetrizine 5mg twice daily for a week. Tablet Vit C 500mg once daily for a week. Do warm saline gurgling four times daily for a week. Take steam inhalation four times daily for a week.

Hope this helps. But you should get checked up by a doctor.Dont neglect.

Take care.

You seem to be suffering from Respiratory tract infection, with the history that you have provided. It will require some Antibiotics and Antipyretics and then you should be fine in a couple of days. They are prescription based and shall require you to get from the Family Practitioner. We suggest you home care with Steam inhalations with Menthol, Eucalyptus oil and cut down smoking if you are a smoker. These are effective along with the antibiotics.
