Do persistent fever, blood in phlegm and white spots at the back of the throat require an ER consultation?

Ive had a persistent fever around 101.5, muscle aches, headaches and just general malaise. I just coughed up a ball of yellowish phlegm from my nose that has blood in it and I can see white spots i the back of my throat. Should I be worried or go see a doctor?

Hello,

You may be suffering from pharyngitis and bronchitis.

If your symptoms not improved with medication means you have to consult your doctor immediately.

Till then use tablet paracetamol.

Salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Avoid cool drinks and freeze water avoid smoking and caffeine drinks.

If symptoms not improved please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
