Hello from JustAnswer.

What medicine were you given initially that was the wrong medicine?

Are you taking any chronic medicines?

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.

I had asked for some additional information and have not heard back.

There is no reason to be concerned about any kind of cancer in this situation.

It s vastly most likely that it is a type of inflammation or infection of the head, nose, sinuses, or ears. The most common germ to cause these symptoms would be a generic viral infection, but there are times when there can be a bacterial infection superimposed on the viral infection. I ask about which antibiotic was prescribed, as that would give a clue of what type of infection was thought to be present by that doctor. Since the second doctor said it needs to run its course, this doctor apparently thought that it was a viral infection.

There are a variety of over the counter antihistamine/decongestant medicines that may help ease symptoms. There are certain chronic medical conditions and chronic medicines that preclude the use of these medicines, such as high blood pressure, which is why I asked if you are taking any chronic medicines.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
