Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your query.
the majority of respiratory infetions are viral,especailly in the beginning of infection. Later it can become bacterial pharyngitis or pneumonia. If there is no productive cough, more than 39 fever or mouth odour it is likely to be virus so antibiotics arent needed. If you notice these symptoms or this persists more than 4-5 days you should visit doctor. Wish you good health.
