Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call.

Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.

Though it can be covid, it can be just a common cold virus causing all this.

I would suggest taking Tylenol CF, do saltwater gargles and take chicken stock and soups and see how it evolves.

Most likely it will improve in the next 2 to 3 days if not then get the COVID test.

No worries.

Ok Doctor thank you. I read in the papers that a girl aged 16 was perfectly healthy and died after having trouble to breathe. This is why I am getting scared. I get migraines and would request a face to face meeting. Coudl you tell me how much it will cost ?

I do not know about the cost.

You can contact customer services for that.

And that girl would be 1 in 10,0000 people with other issues most likely.

Dear Doctor Uzair
Following the result of my Covid Test as positive, I wish to do everything possible to recover soonest.
Firstly I obviously will be complying with the obligatory self-isolation period – 10 days after the first day of the symptoms; ie until this Sunday 25.10.2020.
Could you advise me on the best way I can gain strength and fortify my body; other than eating well and drinking water, etc?
For example, would you advise a 2-3 week vitamin treatment? If yes, please send me the name of the vitamin supplement. Is Vitamin C or another combination of vitamins recommended? Thank you for your advice
For your information, I already have a Vitamin D one 2ML uni-dose with me to take mid-end November. (CHOLECALCIFEROL 100 000 U.I)
I also have a prescription to have a flu shot from my family doctor in Paris but I am not sure if this French prescription is recognized as a valid prescription in the UK?
If not, could you send me a prescription for the flu shot as I am now in the category of patients who require this?
How and when may I do the flu shot?
Thanking you for your advice and concern,
Sincerely,
William Schulz

Just take multivitamins which ever you like.

Eat healthily and take lots of chicken stock.

Ginger tea.

we do not give prescriptions here.

See a doctor in person for that.

I hope you will get better soon.

Open a new thread if you have further questions.

Thank you.
