Hi... for the past few days I've had a cough, my throat hurts when I swallow (probably due to the coughing) and theres some drainage, although my nose feels fine. I've also had a fever of 100-101. Does anybody know what's going on? My mom wants to take me to the doctor for antibiotics, but I don't think I need them..
thanks a bunch,

  • Sounds like the flu. If it is, the docs won't give you antibiotics. They'll tell you to stay home. But, since no one online can look in your throat or ears or listen to your lungs. It's impossible for someone to tell this way. Why not go ahead and go to the docs and let them tell you for sure. If you are willing to trust perfect strangers who don't have a medical degree, why not see a doctor?
