dear there is no need to worry.You seems to have upper respiratory infection which takes couple of days to settle.Any antibiotic started needs some time to build its level in blood to inhibit bacteria.so for first couple of days you may have fever,please tablets for fever as advised for fever,drink plenty of liquids,hot ones are better,take light diet.Do proper rest and you will fine,bye and take care.

My 18 month old daughter is running a slight fever @ 100degrees, is developing a sore throat, and her breathing is accompanied by a loud, low wheezing sound. A child in her class developed strep throat earlier in the week and we are wondering if this is strep or another condition and at what point we should take her to a doctor. Her cough is very loud, dry, and deep without mucus.

Last month (Early December) I was having ear pain, sore throat, cough, and mucus/runny nose. I also noticed a grouping of about 3 or 4 white spots(inflamed with puss-like characteristics). I had my tonsils removed about 8 years ago. My doctor said I had a regular infection it ll pass in 2 weeks, and the symptoms were gone. Yesterday I looked in my throat and those spots are identical and haven t resolved. When I was younger I had strep with the tonsil stones but this is not it. I snore. Have sore throats in the morning. Sacks or bumps in throat are not at all painful. My tongue is white at the very back of it. Doctor took a culture and it wasn t strep. Also I have put on about 12-20 lbs. since summer of 2010 and. H doctor is worried a out dibetes and cholesterol tests. Does anyone know what this is? Thank you.

I have been sick for about 3 days now. I have a sore throat and a stuffy nose, but no cough or runny nose. I also have a constant headache that gets worse if i turn my head fast or stand up too quickly. I have an earache in my left ear from it, too. I can hear, but everything just seems to be a little muffled. I have chills and a fever of over 100. I feel weak and tired all of the time, but laying down makes it worse, and I can barely sleep. And, finally, what I m really here about, is what I ve been coughing up. The first time, it was mucus with streaks of blood, but this morning, it was completely blood. It was slimy at first, but once it dried out, it looked (and felt) like tissue or flesh. I ve never had this happen before, but I don t think it s just coincidental. I d hope, that at the very least, the bloody tissue is related to my cold or flu, instead of being caused by something more serious. I d really appreciate the help. Thank you.

For the past month or so my right hand side nostril leaks 2-3 drops of clear fluid (no taste/smell) whenever I lower my head e.g. bend over, lie face down. No obvious inflamation/obstruction or recent cold, flu, or nasal/head/eye injury. I am male, mid 50's with no allergies, headaches, etc. and occassionally snore if lying on my right side (so I am told!) Septum has always been slightly 'curved' towards right hand side so nasal lining will touch sides during a cold. Non smoker. My partner cannot see any obvious nasal obstruction/swelling/lump but cannot see as far up the right nostril.

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.
