Strep throat is still possible given the persistence of fever.
other bacterial infection is also possible.
So it's probably time for an antibiotic, huh?
Viral illness related fever can last sometimes this long in case of epstein barr virus.
I will suggest so.
A strep throat test and throat swab culture should be repeated.
OK - in between the fevers I've occassionally had night sweats too.
that is also part of infection.
do you feel any lymph nodes around the neck?
To be honest, i don't know how to check if they're swollen
do you see any difference in front of the mirror?
not that I can tell
I do have a tendency to get sinus infections, but my sinuses feel clear
that is also possible from untreated infections.
OK - thank you
It is also better to check out a blood count with differential to make sure your blood cells are normal.
OK -- will head to the doc today
