Re: how long can virus infection last
I currently have an upper respiratory infection that I've had now for the past week and a half.
I was prescribed Amoxicillan (which didn't help), Allegra-D (which helped my congestion), cough syrup (which helped relieve my dry cough to some extent) and cough drops (which helped soothe my sore throat).
I'm just now able to start tasting and smelling food again. My sneezing has also improved and I no longer have many of the same symptoms I did before (fever, vomiting, a very bad headache, violent/forceful/repetitive sneezing and extreme sound sensitivity).
Now all I'm left with is a dry cough which I've been told can linger for an extra month.
Hope you feel better soon.
