Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Since all the symptoms from mono cleared up, it does not seem like the symptoms are related to your past infection.
You probably developed an upper respiratory tract infection ( URTI ). This will need an antibiotic therapy besides saline or betadine gargling 2-3 times daily. The saline water gargling will reduce the inflammation in the throat, thereby reducing the throat pain.

I will suggest Cap. Augmentin 625 mg twice daily for 7-10 days, depending on the severity of your symptoms. Thick saliva indicates a bacterial infection. Most such infections start as a viral, but quickly progresses to a superadded bacterial infection. I will also advise an antihistaminic Tab. Levocetirizine to be taken once daily at bedtime for 3 days to reduce the wheezing and the nasal congestion.

Please consult your Physician and confirm the diagnosis before starting any arbitrary treatment.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
