Avatar_n_tn Chronic Sore throat / Mood Virus I got a constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> stuffy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> from a respiratory virus.

Avatar_f_tn These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> certain medications. Exposure to allergens causes a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> with a resultant post nasal drip where secretions from the nose go backward into the throat and irritate causing cough. Cough is a protective mechanism by the body as it helps to prevent infections. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.
Avatar_n_tn I've had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> cough for two months, along with a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> on (more on than off). No congestion. No sinus pain. No ear problems. Continuous symptoms, not a day in two months without. It started with a bad cold I had caught, and these particular symptoms never went away. Spring/summer is in full swing now, and my first guess would be that it's allergies, but I've never had this problem before. itchy eyes and throat, yes, but not this.
Avatar_f_tn She keeps having to clear her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. She does not have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>, does not have a cough, no symptoms of being sick at all. Her doctor said nothing in her throat and to encourage fluids. I have tried Benedryl, Children's Cleratin, cough meds, even just simple honey with warm water. Nothing seems to keep those constant clearing of throat at ease. Doc says maybe she has formed a habit. which to some extent seems true as when I keep reminding her, she would stop for a few minutes.
Avatar_n_tn A few days afterwards, I started to get flu-like symptoms (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> pain, white mucus discharge from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, joint pain, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a low grade fever - about 37 degrees celcius). This lasted for about three weeks, however, the symptoms that I had never really went away.. I still had mucus in my nose and there was a large presence of phlegm in my throat which forced me to clear it very often.
Avatar_m_tn it is a dry cough for the most part with a little bit of phlegm, but I am also having on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> off cold symptoms (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> with clear mucus, sneezing). some of the coughing fits have gotten so bad that I have not been able to breathe and almost thrown up. it doesn't seem to be getting better with time and I am getting tired of coughing. what could this be?
Avatar_f_tn Should I be concerned or does it just sound like a common cold. Haven't had one in along time! Oh amd somewhat of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> bleed last night <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have a crappy cough.
Avatar_m_tn But each summer for the last two summers, my eyes, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> lungs burn - especially I think when the AC goes on. No runny nose or sneezing or itchy eyes. It just burns. Like the AC lubricant or freon or radon or something else? No one else in the family feels it either! Oh and my lymph nodes swell up, too. Last winter though, it went away and I was fine for months. Then it started to get warm and it came back just as strong. I can hardly stand to be in the house.
392548_tn?1216614379 hey.. i have asthma too <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i get an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>... i use qvarr <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> albuterol every morning before school so i wont get asthma during pe..... also u said you do water polo i know this is off topic but im about to start when i go to highschool and do you have any tips for me? im a complete beginner...
Avatar_m_tn i have performed oral sex on my girlfriend and now i'm wondering if that may cause some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> infection i feel like i'm currently having. at first it was just an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> with coughs but now it seems just like the flu, complete with runny & stuffy nose. so at first i was worried it might be the oral but now i'm wondering if i was just worrying a bit too much. is there any way an infection from oral sex would present flu-like symptoms?
Avatar_m_tn The primary symptom of rhinitis is a runny nose along with sneezing, watering of the eyes, congestion of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, eyes, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> ears. You are right in saying that steam inhalation is beneficial in rhinitis. Along with steam inhalation, you can take nonsedating antihistamines like cetirizine (Zyrtec) or loratadine (Claritin).Moreover decongestants and topical decongestants may help in reducing congestion of the nose.
Avatar_f_tn But it has other associated signs and symptoms such as cough, runny nose, inflamed eyes, sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, fever <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a red, blotchy skin rash. Hives or urticaria causes red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sometimes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> rash on the body such as face, neck, trunk, arms, and legs and perhaps anywhere on the body. They are usually allergic (food, medication and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found.
1672514_tn?1304516514 My face and neck have been itchy and burning for a week now, usually this only happens when I pet a cat and then touch my face, I am not sure if it has to do with my use of Proactiv, I have used proactiv for years, I thought maybe the acid and living in Florida doesnt mix well, I also have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it feels like my nasal passage is swollen... any one know what I can do to get rid of this?? Its very annoying to constantly be itching all day and night!!
Avatar_m_tn I developed cold symptoms about 2 weeks ago, starting with a sore throat, then a stuffy nose, and then a slight "itchy" cough. The cough subsided within 4 days, and the stuffy nose practically subsided, but I STILL have a sore throat. It seems to act up at night the most, and during the day it almost goes away to the point where I feel perfectly fine.
Avatar_f_tn Im a male in my early 20s and I've always had hayfever but this year it's been worse than normal, apparently due to higher pollen levels this year. I mainly get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> eyes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sneeze alot. With this, I've had a dry ticklish/sore throat with a feeling of mucus there for about a month. When i looked, i had multiple round red bumps, what looked like granular pharyngitis, in the back of my throat.
Avatar_n_tn who told me there is a nerve in the roof of my mouth, or maybe the throat I can't remember, that for some people gets stimulated when one eats or drinks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> can trigger a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> or even post nasal drip. If that is true then the more it drips, the more I swallow hard, the more it drips. I have tried eating painfully slow, chewing my food for a long time and taking smaller bites and it does seem to lessen the effect, but it still drips.
Avatar_f_tn She keeps having to clear her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. She does not have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>, does not have a cough, no symptoms of being sick at all. Her doctor said nothing in her throat and to encourage fluids. I have tried Benedryl, Children's Cleratin, cough meds, even just simple honey with warm water. Nothing seems to keep those constant clearing of throat at ease. Doc says maybe she has formed a habit. which to some extent seems true as when I keep reminding her, she would stop for a few minutes.
Avatar_n_tn Today it has spread to the right side of my face, chin eye <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> inside of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. The inside of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> also burns now. It is really beginning to be uncomfortable. My face and nose feels cold to the touch, but from the inside is on fire!
675923_tn?1296241611 I have dry itchy eyes, runny <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>, headache <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sometimes a scratchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. This year I am experiencing a burning sensation in my lungs and throat along with shortness of breath. Has anyone else had this experience? I am thinking that this is a new symptom of allergies OR asthma. I have never been diagnosed with asthma. I quit smoking three months ago but did not experience these symptoms even while smoking. Thank you in advance for your comments.
1083321_tn?1256275912 One possible cause is an allergic reaction to a birth control pill I started taking on Sunday (10/18/09), but it's been about five days since then and I haven't felt anything else unusual. The symptoms of the cold I have are mild sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>, cough, fatigue, and mild upset stomach. I took an antihistamine and used lotion on my skin an hour ago, and neither have had much effect. I am 17 years old and female. Thanks for any feedback!
Avatar_f_tn My last doctor sent me to an allergy specialist/immunologist and it turned out I'm pretty much allergic to every environmental substances (which usually cause the typical sneezing, watery/itchy eyes, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>). I've tried taking Clariton, Allegra, Reactine but they do not work for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> swelling. I also tried Cortisone inhalers and nasal sprays and had no luck. I'm sick of going to the doctors and having them look at me like I'm crazy or just giving me more antibiotics.
Avatar_f_tn Over 30 times popped. I feel delusional at times <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> to yuck! now, my neck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> shoulders are killing me. Dust is MAYBE, one of many probs,smoke bbq smoke worst!! HELP ME. AMOX DIDNT FIX 5mnths ago, im sick
Avatar_n_tn Consulted ENT again he stopped antibiotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> prescribed some pottasium/sodium tablets, diarrhea, neck/back pain, severe fatigue & sore throat, spoungy nose. Day 23: Had very itching & pricking red bump on stomach, continous diarrhea, fatigue, sore throat & spoungy nose.
Avatar_f_tn It is not painful what so ever. It's red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> inflamed back in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> there are obvious red spots on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. Sometimes white builds ups on there. Sometimes I will get a rash that comes up for a few minutes then go away. Those are the only symptoms I can think of. The doctor tested for strep and it was negative. I do have seasonal allergies and was wondering why I have a sore throat for so long. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar_f_tn A couple of weeks ago I had a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> that later turned into a cough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>. I lost my voice for s few days. Throughout the course of these symptoms I developed dry red patches on my stomach area that later became itchy. After a few days the patches spread to my side and arms. I never felt bad like I had a cold but still had the cough and runny nose as well as these rashes.
Avatar_f_tn I did have a cold a couple days ago (sneezing, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>, sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>). I have had joint pains but I had them for many years now. The last time I was HIV tested (in March) it came back negative. UPDATE: I have formed 2 more bumps on my buttocks, one is big and painful like a pimple with no puss.
Avatar_f_tn Also I always used to have a naturally <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> blocked sinuses <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> now it just feels scarily clear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> there seems to be very little mucous production. I looked in my nostrils at the beginning of the week and noticed how red and raw the membrane over the septum area is. I rushed to my doctor who sent me to an ent. The ent says there is no septal perforation and that the membranes look really inflamed.
Avatar_n_tn I don't seem to have any other connected symptoms, no watery itchy eyes or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>runny</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span>. It does seem my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nose</span> gets dry in the morning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sometimes can't breath through my nose because it is so blocked, but it isn't runny. As a young child I used to get many ear infections (not sure if that is relavant). I'm thinking it is either a food allergy (milk suspected) or post nasal drip? What things can I try to narrow it down?
