Raised glands on the side of face due to viral infection

Hi, I started having flu symptoms 6 days ago, problems with my glands in the right side of my face , foggy head, hot and have no energy in my legs. Need to Get back to work but don t have any energy. Had the flu about 3 months before. Went to the walk in centre and they told me my glands were raised and it was a virual Infection and couldn t give me anything so just been taking flu capsules. Should I Push myself back to work even though I have no Energy in my legs and feel weak or will it go if I continue to rest. Do I need to see a doctor?

Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.

Your symptoms suggest that you are suffering from sinusitis, that is infection of sinuses. Sinus infection may be caused by anything that interferes with airflow into the sinuses and the drainage of mucus out of the sinuses. Stagnated mucus provides an environment for bacteria, viruses.

Usually it is caused either by the allergy or by virus, for which , no antibiotic treatment is required. Frequently recommended treatments include pain and fever medications (such as acetaminophen [Tylenol]), decongestants and mucolytics.

Only when there is secondary bacterial infection then only antibiotics are required.

I advice you take the flu capsule which have been prescribed to you and also do salt water gargling and steam inhalation that will be helpful.

Yet again, I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
