Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Dr. Hasan and I'll try to help you. I am reviewing your question and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Do you have symptoms like nasal obstruction, nasal discharge , headache specially on bending forward, fever etc ? What have you tried so far? Regards
Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concerns but later you can ask anything you want. As per your description yes this sounds like a flu attack and mostly they are viral. However they can soon get super added by a bacterial infection. Ideally speaking for earliest recovery you should go to A&E as getting steroids can help you a lot but I understand that you are here because you can't access your health services so I do have suggestions for you;
1. Otrivin nasal spray 2 puffs thrice daily for 5 days
2. Mucinex twice daily for 7 days
3. Steam inhalation with menthol drops twice daily
4. Use hot drinks.
5. Tablet advil thrice daily
Everything that I have mentioned is available over the counter from pharmacy without prescription. If symptoms persist, see your doctor but I am hopeful that you will feel better soon. I wish you good luck and that you get well soon. My goal is to provide you excellent service but if you have received anything less, please ask anything you want. Your excellent feedback is requested and will be appreciated. Regards
Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry but we can't provide any sick leave or certificate online. Moreover I would like to share a home remedy. Take 250 ml of honey, add one table spoon each of ginger extract and black pepper. Make a solution and take one teaspoon twice daily. It will help you. Your excellent feedback is requested and will be appreciated. Regards
