flu like symptons, no energy, loss of appetite, nasty hacking cough, body aches all over. been like this for 6 days now.
Thank you for your question.It sounds, most likely to be a viral infection.However, since your symptoms have not improved any over the last 6 days, I would recommend that you be seen to see if you require a course of an antibiotic, which would be required if there is a superadded bacterial infection.A viral infection in itself can take up to a couple of weeks to go away completely.Meanwhile I would recommend continuing doing what you are already doing.This session is open for any further questions that you may have. The only way I am credited here by the website and the money that you have deposited is released is when you rate me.Therefore, I would appreciate a rating when you are done asking.Kindest regards
