Dear Angel,

All these symptoms indicate that you might be having Upper Respiratory tract infection.

Management includes:
1. Gargle with warm salt water to relieve throat pain.
2. Analgesics like paracetamol to take care of the fever & headache
3. Antibiotics depending upon culture & sensitivity reports to remove the causative organism.
4. Antihistamine preparations can also be used to provide symptomatic relief.

If symptoms still persist, it will be better to consult an ENT specialist.
Meanwhile...avoid taking cold food & drinks, maintain adequate hydration & take soft, non-spicy foods.

Wish you good health & a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.

Hi there, thanks for asking. You should go to the doctor to see what it is. In some cases the infections which last more than one week could be really important. It could be a simple viral disease or it could be a sign for another medical problem. Best wishes.
