Thank you for the quick reply.
The symptoms you have described of having bad sore throat,yellow phlegm,trouble swallowing,dry cough,hot and cold sweats along with headache since saturday is most likely due to upper respiratory tract infection caused by viral infection.Symptoms caused by a viral infection generally clears up on its own within 5-7 days with no complications.
Following is recommended for you:
- For symptomatic relief,take tab.NyQuil.It contains acetaminophen,dextromethorphan,doxylamine and pseudoephedrine that will provide you great relief from these symptoms.It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription.
- Keep a humidifier running in your room.
- Use an over-the-counter salt-water spray (inhaled through the nose) five or six times a day.This will provide you dramatic relief.
- To get relief from head aches,take tab. Ibuprofen 400 mg from the counter. It is available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.
All this will help you greatly to subside the symptoms of viral infection.
If still after this,the symptoms persists,then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatments.
