Hello. I'm Dr Chip

Sorry to hear about this

What exactly is your question please?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I am wondering if I have some sort of throat infection that needs treatment as the cocodamol is not getting rid of the temperature and the pain
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 13 days ago.

If the sore throat is that painful it sounds like a strep throat problem

For now you can use oral probiotics, zinc lozenges, gargling with warm salt water and the cocomadol and plenty of juices

But you should see your doctor for a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

I thought I was registered with a GP but the practice say Hi am not a live member. I am not well enough to drive to nearest Walk in which is nearly 14miles as I think the temperature is disturbing my sight-like hallucinating

Do you prescribe oral antibiotics for strep throat
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 13 days ago.

I understand

But we don't offer prescriptions here since that would be both illegal and malpractice

For now try my suggestions and get plenty of rest

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
ok
