im having a minor cough and a minor sore throat. Some runny nose. No fever. But feel a bit nauceous. Also when I was coughing anything that I may have caughed up was still clear but thick and mucusy.
Thanks for the information.
Considering your symptoms, the red line would most probably a line of inflammation due to a throat infection. In absence of any pain, the infection seems more like a viral. You can try-
- taking steam
- oral anti-histaminics like benadryl/cetrezine
- anti-inflammatories like tylenol/motrin
- drink warm fluids
- do warm saline gargles.
