Customer Question

Hi! I'm a 36 year old female. I have been sick for 6day with what feels like the flu. The body aches and fever have subsided. Yesterday I has a stuffy nose and felt like death . Today my nose is now running clear and I'm coughing up yellow gunk. When I
cough it burns . My throat burns constantly unless im drinking cold liquids. I feel like the rest of my body is on the mend, but this burning throat is almost unbearable. Ive has strep before and this feels nothing like that not difficult to swallow just burns.
Any ideas:-)

sounds like a severe sinus infection that is making the throat raw

I would go to urgent care and get some viscous lidocaine and antibiotics
