Thank you for posting your medical query to DoctorSpring.com
In order to help you fully, I would appreciate further details regarding your condition:
1. What are your current symptoms? How long have you had them? (Nasal congestion or discharge / headache / body ache / fever as measured by a thermometer / cough )
2. Have you taken the flu vaccine this year?
3. Do you have any pre-existing medical conditions? For example high blood pressure? Migraines? These could be explainations for the exploding sensation in your head.
4. Do you currently take any medications?
I look forward to your reply
Patient replied :
I feel All the symtoms, Nasal congestion and discharge / headache / body ache / cough/ eyes tear all the time. I am not sure if I have fever or not! The pressure I feel in my head comes and goes
it starts mild then becomes unbearable then mild again, it disappears then it starts all over again. All the symtoms started 3 days ago but the head pressure started this morning.
2- I did not take the flu vaccine.
3 no pre-existing medical conditions
I started taking the following medications yesterday:
azithromycin tablets, USP unit of 6 tablets x 250 mg
Contact cold+ flu maximum strength
dristan 12-hr nasal spray
Thank you for using Doctor spring
You are suffering from cold and cough with bodyache and headache for two days, so you have URI (upper respiratory tract infection)
Amoxicillin is first line antibiotic for URI, But azithromycin is also effective.
as you have started continue azithromycin 500mg once dialy (two tablet of 250 mg at a time).
Contac cold with flu maximum contains acetaminophen, chlorpheniramine maleate and phenylephrine hydrochloride. This is also a good combination, you shold start getting symptomatic releif now. So you continue same and if not improving then only you require investigations.
Hope this helps
