Brief Answer: Please follow the suggestions below.... Detailed Answer: Hi, I read your medical history and could say that your symptoms show the beginning of a viral infection. I'd suggest to take acetaminophen, vitamin C, drink more fluids, do throat gargle with water and salt. I would like to know if you have traveled recently, to rule out endemic infection? Wishing you fast recovery Dr.Sonila

No travel but a lot of exposure to the public. I'm either very sweaty hot or cold to the bone. Smell is normal now

Brief Answer: Getting cold/flu is common when exposed to public Detailed Answer: Hi again, Thank you for following up. It is common to get cold or flu when being highly exposed to the public. It is also normal to have cold or hot feeling due to the changes in your body temperature while fighting against virus. Take more rest, have tea (I usually prescribe linden tea), take acetaminophen and vitamin C. If no improvement within a week or two or in case you see coughing or other symptoms are being aggravated, should consult your physician for further evaluation (complications). Wish you fast recovery! Dr.Sonila
