I have had a sore throat for nearly two weeks. I went to the Dr nearly a week ago and a throat culture was done. It was negative for strep throat. I was then told I have a viral infection and I couldn't be prescribed any antibiotics. It's been a week and my sore throat is worse

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? Do you have a fever?

No fever. I had a mild fever 2 days after I had got a sore throat but nothing since. I feel worse now.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

And this past Monday, I woke up with pink eye in my right eye. Went to the eye Dr and it was a bacterial infection. I was then prescribed some eye drops and I am feeling better when it comes to my eye.
