I am a 60 year old male who is overweight. Other than being overweight, I am in relatively good health. I am getting regular health checkup for every six months. Currently, I am taking Triamterene and HCTZ and Simvastatin 20 mg. Recently, I had cold, some respiratory discomfort, chest congestion, sneezing, sore throat, little if any fever and lots of coughing. Congestion is gone as is sneezing. Sore throat lingers. There is an irritated spot on back of tongue. It could be from sucking on too many cough drops. Tonsils and entire throat area is red and swollen. Ibuprofen relieves pain temporarily. Please give some thoughts or any suggestion. Initial symptoms of chest congestion appeared seven days ago. Please guide.
