Our expert says:
These are symptoms of a viral infection. You should get a lot of bedrest and drink a lot of fluids to stay hydrated. You can use Panado or Ibuprofen to alleviate your pain and fever. I do however, suggest that you consult your doctor for an examination and a throat swab, to determine if you have a viral or bacterial infection. If you have a bacterial infection, you will have to get a script of antibiotics.
