Customer Question
I’m a 31 year old...
I’m a 31 year old female that developed cold symptoms 6 days ago.
3 days into it I felt a bit better but yesterday and today I feel worse and have developed a cough and throat itch and feel mentally not there. I can feel lots of mucous running down my throat. Mucous is yellow. No fever or diarrhoea.
Could this be something more serious than a cold as usually my colds only last 3 days and I’ve never felt worsening symptoms a week into it.
Should I go to the gp?

This is more than a simple cold

It sounds as though you have a sinus infection

Usually these are viral and run their course in a few days but in your case I think it's bacterial and that would require a course of oral antibiotics

So at this point you need to see your doctor.

Please let me know if you need any more information
