A:   Thank you for your question. It is possible that you may have contracted an upper respiratory tract infection. It does not seem that you are in any life threatening emergency so we believe you will be best served by going to your PCP to be evaluated. It is possible you may be prescribed oral antibiotics to clear the bacteria causing your infection.
