Question: Hi Dr XXXXXXX My family went to england for a wedding last week and we all caught some kind of crud. Its been a week with fever/chills, pain in the eyes, and lots of flem.

I was just trying to ride it out, but I just found out that three others on the trip were diagnosed with sinus infection and felt so much better after getting a prescription. Im thinking that may be the case for me and my two kids as well.

Hello! I have been through your question.
