Hi , I have a sore throat with hoarseness for the last 3 days. It is red with white spots and pain up into my jaw. I have swollen glands and a slight fever. I have a cough that is not real persisted but very raspy and hurts down into my chest. Shall I have it checked?

Ive had a cold for almost a week I am pretty sure, runny and or stuffy nose, I had a sore throat but it doesn t hurt anymore, it just gets dry all the time now and its hard to swallow, also coughing, I usually cough up a little bit of mucus, usually only in the mornings then I only cough a little bit during the rest of the day, but my major issue is my hoarse voice that I ve had for three days now. It feels like something is stuck in my throat and I sound all raspy and sometimes I squeak with every word I say and sometimes I can only get out a whisper. I feel horrible in the mornings but I do pretty fine the rest of the day other than my throat feeling clogged. I sound creepy and it makes it difficult to do my job and talk with customers and I dont want to ask questions at school because I am afraid I will squeak with my creepy manly voice. Anyway, is there a quick solution to get rid of my hoarse voice? If so, what is it? pleaaaaase help me.

hello. i have no idea if i have a cold or flu or what. i was looking online but they say a cold you would have a runny nose. i do not but my nose is a little plugged [i can still breathe..and i thinks its been like this before..i dont think its allergies because i am not sneezing] i was coughing (it's getting a little better). i do not have a headache or puffy eyes. i started feeling bad (sore throat- it hurt to talk and swollow) maybe on the 19th or 18th [every so often coughing really bad as well] and i have been taking plenty of Airborne. Today my throat does not hurt when i speak (it doesnt hurt when i swollow..it just feels odd) and i have not been coughing as much (maybe 1/2 or 1/4 of what i was coughing like]. Is this a cold or flu or what? and is it contagious [still? how would i know if it was] ? i do not want to get my family sick and i would like to haang out with a friend this weekend.
