Hayfever or flu
Hi Doc
I started with a sore throat (which was a little red), then sneezing, burning watery eyes, very runny nose, a little coughing and a mild headache. I feel quite fluy, and I have never suffered from hay fever before (so I have nothing to compare against). Could this be the flu or is it hay fever. And if it is hay fever, what can you recommend.

Dear topaz_za
I think it probably a viral infection. Try Sudafed and Mypaid for now.
