Well lets see…
- My symptoms came on suddenly
- I feel feverish
- I don’t have a runny nose
- I have a slight sore throat
- I have a dry unproductiveÂ cough
- I feel very tired and fatigued
- I have bad body aches
According to this flu or cold symptoms chart, it looks like I’m having the flu. Baby had it first, then my girl, now me. Aarrgh! I hate this merry go round of sickness. Happens all the time. Next time someone gets sick in the house, I must quarantine them. 😛
All the articles I read say that you don’t need antibiotics for a cold or flu and yet everytime I see the docÂ when I have a cold or a flu, the doc would prescribe antibiotics. Hmmm…. so how? To take or not to take?
I try not to take antibiotics if I can help it. Here the drs don’t give antibiotics unless very sick.
Here the doctors prescribe it all the time.
