Hi,
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually, from your description, it sounds like that you may have developed sinusitis. This is inflammation of the sinuses which can lead to the develop[ment of the pressure in the face and the head and even the rise in temperature. Over time it can lead to stuffiness in the nose and even cough or post nasal drip. In the initial stages, you would only have pressure over the face etc. Sinusitis is a possibility because you have recently developed a strep throat along with the flu/cold. These upper respiratory tract infections can very easily cause the development of sinusitis. Now, this would be diagnosed quite easily on a clinical examination and then can be treated with simple OTC anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen at a dose of 400 mg thrice daily along with sinus lavages with OTC saline as well as decongestants. These three things are usually enough to control the problem. if they don't work then a sinus x-ray would be required followed by a course of potent antibiotics like azithromycin as well as steroids for a period of 5-7 days.

I would recommend that if the symptoms persist after the use of OTC products then contact your doctor again for the antibiotics and steroids.

Do you have any more questions?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
