My asthma has been giving me fits for about three days. smhair
My class has been having lots of sniffles and coughing. I started sniffling a few days ago and my coughing has slowly gotten worse.
I don't have a fever, but I've been very wheezy and squeaky. I do feel a slight headache coming on.

I certainly hope that I am not getting a sinus infection. I'm allergic to too many antibiotics and it's very risky for me to try a new one. skull

Hot vapor helps open the airways. And use your medication. Also call your doctor, you might need a nebulizer treatment.

I've had very similar symptoms. My doc suggested allergra (it is now generic) for my eczema and just hope that it working. If the headache becomes severe, you should see the doctor.

Take care.  Oh I forgot the as much as you can and drink plenty of water.  Eat only very good food.

I've got my own nebulizer to use.
I take zyertec daily.
I've got some nasal steriods.
I bought some mucus relief meds. It seems to be helping some.
I sleep with a CPAP at night on high humidity.

Headache, low fever, deep coughing, slight wheezing, sniffles, runny nose, sore throat, itchy ears...

Oh, the misery....

I'm going to the doctor as soon as his office opens and get some decadron and predisone pack.

I hate my allergies! >:(
