She is taking amoxicillin for the sinus infection and 2 500mg of Tylenol and 3 x 200mg ibuprofen.
No chest pain during cough or deep breathing. Just her throat feels like it's closing up and very scratchy.
could send you a pic of it if you like?
She is getting post nasal drip.
The fever has only been an hr, but she was so hot when she woke up she was a bit disoriented.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I can't get back into this app after creating an acct and adding my visa info and it's not sending an email with a temp pwd to me even though it's the correct address. Just took her temp again after 30m and it's gone down from 10.2 to 98.4.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I don't know if this is strep or from the post nasal drip, or a virus due to the body aches.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
She is overdue for taking Sudafed, should she take some?
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,her line of treatment is going good.

And it may take 48 hours to 72 hours for antibiotic to treat her infection.

She should hydrate herself with warm liquids and Gatorade.

Also do steam inhalation and saline gargles.

Oral betadine rinse can be tried.

She should start a multivitamin supplement and vitamin C lozenges to boost her immunity.

Her disorientation can be associated with eustachian tube blockage.

She should use a humidifier in room.

Also take nasal saline spray and OTC Nasonex spray rather than Sudafed which causes rebound congestion.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

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.
