Resolved Question:

My girlfriend was upset and crying over a personal issue so i held her, kissed her forehead, her eyelids just trying comfort her and ended up swallowing some tears. She wears contact lenses and her eyes had been itching and red all that day... So we go to see her eye Doctor the next day and find out she has conjunctivitis. She gets some eye drops an we go home, Now I have a SERIOUS cough and sore throat. Whats wrong with me and will go away? Or do i need antibiotics? Please help me... R.

Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

I think you will be fine. Her conjunctivitis is most likely viral and, as such, no antibiotics are necessary.

Dr. Rick :

Your sore throat is just one of the small prices we pay in the name of Love. :-)

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?
