When I take a deep breath my lungs burn at the top and when I cough it feels like fire at the top of my lungs. My ears itch and my cough is productive. My temp is only 98.8 with tylenol but I have been on antibiotics for 2 weeks and a prednisone pack for 6 days.

Hi, my 2 year old son fell in a pool for about 7 seconds last sunday. On monday he came down with a fever that lasted through wednesday. The highest temperature was 102.4. We gave him ibuprofen, took him to the pediatrician and she said it was a virus, just wait. On thursday his temperature was gone, he seemed like he was slowly going back to normal, but on saturday he started with a cough and runny nose. Tonight he woke up coughing and it sounded like there was phlegm (or liquid) and he had trouble breathing for a minute while he was coughing. Then he fell back asleep. My concern is: could he have water in his lungs even though the doctor didn t catch that 3 days ago? Is there any checkup I should be doing after he fell in the pool? Thank you

Hi- This morning I woke up with a sore throat and runny nose. I also had a swollen gland on the right side of my neck under my jaw. It s not sore, and feels hard to touch. Also during the day the swelling goes down occasionally (after a saline gargle etc.). Should I be worried about these symptoms? Or is this just a simple common cold?
