Hi Laura,

This is a new expert

As you don,t have any fever or sore throat so streptococcal infection is unlikely

A possibility of fungal infection or candidiasis needs to be ruled out

For cough you can take benadryl but if it is an oral candidiasis you will need anti-fungal therapy

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you,and that I have earned my 5-stars rating today.

Please remember to rate my service by selecting 5-stars at the top of the screen(rating me now does not close your question)

We can continue further till you are satisfied and you simply use the reply box to let me know

Thank you and regards

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
