Mild sore throat, yellow greenish mucus through eyes, cold chills, lightheadedness. Cold or something severe?

Hey, I woke up yesterday with a mild sore throat . I didn t sweat it and kept my day going around sunset, my eyes started getting pink and irritated, then I noticed some yellowish greenish looking mucus was coming out of my eyes, I went to bed and I had cold chills, a fever of 101-102 the whole night, my head is very lightheaded my eyes keep getting stuck together as I sleep and I can t even swallow .. Also My nose is plugged and I can t breathe out of my nose. Do you think it is just a cold or something severe? I have not ever had mucus come out of my eyes with a cold Then again I just moved to Illinois from Arizona and the winter is harsh so it might just be severe allergies. Also what medications should I take?

Thanks for posting your query.
You are most likely suffering from Acute Viral pharyngitis with conjunctivitis along secondary bacterial infection.
Presence of yellow colored mucus with sticky eyes suggest the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ ophthalmologist simultaneously.
You should take complete antibiotic course along with decongestants and antiinflammtory medicines.
You should also put antibiotic eye drops for faster recovery.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Hi Dave,
Thanks for writing yor query.

From the symptoms you have mentiond, it seems that you are having Upper Respiratopry Tract Infection.
Taking antiallergy like Fenofexadine 120 mg once a day along with nasal decongestant like Pseudoephedrine or Phenylepherine will help. Take Paracetamol 500 mg for fever.
You can put Ciprofloxacin eye drops in your eyes.
Do gargle with antiseptic solution like Betadine Gargle solution.
You should take medicines under medical supervision only.
Avoid spicy or cold foods or drinks.
I hope this is helpful to you.
