Fever, red spots on chest, cold. What I may have at this point?

I m over the fever stage of my flu and i went back to work and at one point was exposed to cold weather for a period of 45 minutes to an hour. I sweated a lot under warm clothing but my chest became chilled through the wet undershirt. Now I have red spots on my chest. Still coughing as I was prior to working, but the coughs aren t as productive. It feels like the congestion is deeper than before. (Before it was in my chest and sinus s.) Appetite is good, no fever, although I still sweat easily with any type of physical exertion. I have more energy than before when I had the full-blown flu symptoms , but I m not 100%. I m concerned about this cold moving into my lungs. Any suggestions on what I may have at this point?

Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding persistent chest infection with small erruptions on chest and fever.

After analysing the symptoms and co-relating them with history of your illness it appears as you are suffering from resplratory tract infection involving nose, sinuses, throat and lungs. You are already taking treatment but infection is still persisting this indicates that your respiratory tract should be examined thoroughly and these investigations should be adviced-

(1)- X-Ray chest.

(2)- Culture & sensitivity of throat swab.

(3)- Blood- CBC, ESR, widal test, Blood sugar (F & PP), SGPT.

(4)- Urine -R & M.

After this much work one may get clue for final diagnosis which may be accordingly manage.
