A sore throat, with swollen lymph nodes, is as likely to be a Strep throat as it is to be a viral infection. Whatever the infecting agent, it is likely to be causing your nasal redness and symptoms; this is very unlikely to be related to the nasal spray. On the other hand, given your daughter’s problem you too could have a staph infection and/or be a staph carrier. You should be checked for this.
Give this another couple of days to improve and if it doesn’t you should be reexamined and your nose and throat cultured for strep and staph.
Thank you for your response. I am not getting better and I think my lymph nodes are getting larger and they are starting to make my jaw and neck hurt and burn. My neck has been itchy too not sure what that is all about. I did use my daughters nasal cream for the staph infection for 7 days and I still have the nasal redness and a little white bump (looks like a pimple in my nostril). My eyes are burning also but that has only happened tonight. This usually happens when i have a fever but just checked my temp and I dont have one so maybe allergies? I dont know what to think of all this. My lymph nodes have been swollen slightly since I had bronchitis 4 months ago. I wonder if I am just getting sick over and over.
Anyways I am taking multi vitamins and drinking OJ every morning so hopefully I can get my immune system up!!!
