Hello, this is Dr. Stan, thank you for your question. I am U.S. trained,

Board Certified and I have 30 years of patient experience and I am here to help you today. Sorry, you are having congestion and body aches. You can add Saline Nasal Spray to help with the congestion. This will not cause any side effects and you can use it as often as needed. Continue to take Zyrtec and Ibuprofen, increased fluids and if possible some additional rest. This is most likely viral and should resolve within 4-5 days. Since you are sensitive to many medications, the fewer you take the better you will be. I wish I could suggest a "miracle" OTC that would take your symptoms totally away, but there is none. It will just take more time.

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned your 5 star rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you.

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.
