Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I have been experiencing a sore throat, cough, runny nose, sneezing, and a headache at the back of your head for over a month, despite taking antibiotics and using nose spray, with no improvement in your symptoms?

Thank you for reaching out to Dr.Galen. Please find the below response to your query


Consider Allergies:

1. Allergies can manifest as persistent respiratory symptoms.

2. Your healthcare provider may recommend allergy testing to identify potential triggers and guide appropriate management strategies.


Review Medication and Treatment Plan:

1. Discuss with your healthcare provider whether the current medications and treatment plan are the most appropriate for your condition.

2. They may need to make adjustments based on your response and any additional diagnostic information.


Reevaluate Diagnosis:

1. If antibiotics haven't provided relief, it's important to consider that the cause may be viral, allergic, or non-infectious.

2. Your healthcare provider may need to reassess your diagnosis and adjust the treatment plan accordingly.
