Avatar f tn I have been sick for the past four days now and nothing I am doing is helping me get better!

Strength for fever. I'm 36 weeks and I don't feel like feeling like complete crap my last few weeks of pregnancy. Please someone help! What can I take??
1874592 tn?1320384756 The common cold, caused by a viral infection, usually presents with sore throat, runny nose, and nasal congestion, cough, muscle aches, and even headaches. This is usually self-limiting and resolves after a few days with rest and drinking plenty of fluids. Not all medications are safe to take at this time of pregnancy. Saline nasal drops and paracetamol may help with the congestion and headache. However, if it persists, check with your doctor for proper evaluation and management.
Avatar n tn Your persistent symptoms of sore throat, ear pain and lymph node swelling could be due to a throat infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain.

Avatar m tn I went to my PCP who said it was a sinus infection but this sore throat happened the day after oral so I think it's from that. He insists it's not & gave me some medicine for the sinus infection. I have been taking the medicine (Flonase) for a month now but still have a sore throat on and off. He never swabbed my throat either. What could this be? The sore throat is there one day and the next day it's gone. The back of my throat is really red and looks swollen.
