Patient :My symptom started out about 6 days ago as if I was losing my voice but has now steadily developed into more of a persistent cough and a minor soar throat. I still have a lot of difficulty talking still. Any suggestions?
Symptoms: Lost voice, cough with discharge, sore throat and tremors but no fever
You want to make sure you don't have strep throat....that is the main thing we worry about...some symptoms of strep include:
- Sore and red swollowen throat
- fever and a headache
- upset stomach, vomitting
- white blisters or patches in back of throat
My suggestion is to monitor it for the day as it may just be a bad cough and try drinking lots of fluids, tea, lots of vitamin c etc. If it still is not on the mend after a day of rest, go see your doctor.
