Dry Cough and sore throat?

I have a dry cough and mild discomfort sore throat.
I tend to cough more at night whilst laying down to sleep.
forthe past 7 days. My bp is also higher than normal.
I feel somewhat mildly feverish, hot-in-face, on and off.

Prior to this I was diagonized by a gp with bad throat infection,
difficult to swallow, tongue infected. I was put on a antibiotic
course (penissilin?) which cleared this condition.

However, 5 days after the course this present symptoms

Any idea what it is or cure, I prefer not to use antibiotic
again, since with the last course I had some unpleasant
after effects. My options?

It is possible that the infection has not cleared, especially if you are experiencing a fever and you therefore, might need an extended course of oral antibiotics. You will have to reconsult your doctor for blood tests and chest x-ray to have a proper diagnosis made. Treatment will depend on the diagnosis.
