Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
You can take theraflu.
It would not cause problem with cefdinir.
Please take plenty of fluid.
Have adequate rest.
You can do warm salt,water gargling.
1/2 tsf salt in 8 oz. of warm water would be good.
Please keep the room warm & humidified.
You can have one humidifier on.
I hope all these measures would give relief.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor again.
Inhaler or bronchodilator can be prescribed.
I hope this information will be helpful.

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.
