Patient : I AM STAYING WITH MY DAUGHTER AND HER CHILDREN. ONE DAUGHTER WAS DIAGNOSED WITH STREP THROAT. SEVERAL DAYS LATER, I HAD A SEVERE HEADACHE, NAUSEA, AND HIGH TEMP(103.7). I AM 60 YEARS OLD. I MISSED 2 DAYS WORK AND RETURNED TO MY JOB. I NOW HAVE SWOLLEN GLANDS, MY FACE IS SWOLLEN, MY NOSE IS SO SWOLLEN THAT IT LOOKS BROKEN. I HAVE A RASH AROUND MY WAISTBAND AND ON THE INNER PARTS OF MY ELBOW. I HAVE NO MEDICAL INSURANCE. I WORK IN A NURSING HOME FACILITY IN THE DIETARY DEPARTMENT. I CAN HARDLY SEE OUT OF MY RIGHT EYE DUE TO SWELLING. WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS SITUATION?
