Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

For the temperature you can take over-the-counter paracetamol (acetaminophen) 500 mg two tablets every eight hourly.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

For the cough you can take benadryl cough suspension which contains an antihistamine. This will cause a bit of sleepiness so you should not drive after taking this.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Symptoms usually do settle in a few days time as it seems most likely to be a viral infection.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

let me know if you have any more questions

what do i do now? I have been charged for your answer and it doesn't help because I prefer homoeopathic remedies. I thoughtb you were a homoepathic doctor and as much as I appreciate your answer it is not the route I wish to go down

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 years ago.
You have not been charged as yet.
You should wait for an hour or two and if you have not received an answer from a homeopath till then, then I will request your money to be refunded.

Hello

 

Sorry for the delays I am a board certified physician and a classical homeopath.

 

Is the tickle in the throat and the post nasal drip the main symptom?

 

Have you craved any food or drink specifically?

 

Tell me details about the cough

 

Can you tell me about your personality in general?
