Dear customer

Thank you for replying back.

The symptoms you have described of having sore throat & mild headache since last 2 days seems most likely due to viral infection.

This does not seem to be due to strep infection.

Sore throat caused by a viral infection generally clears up on its own within one week with no complications.

· .For symptomatic relief,following is recommended for you:

  • Take tab.NyQuil.It contains acetaminophen,dextromethorphan,doxylamine and pseudoephedrine that will provide you great relief from this common cold 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.

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 treatment & doctor visit is less likely required.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

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.
