Itchy throat swollen glands

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy throat swollen glands

itchy

- Swollen armpit glands (not individual nodes, but a general swollen feeling) for 4 weeks, starting 23 days post exposure. Is this the normal timeline for acture HIV symptoms, and is this a common one? - Could this be related to another STD anyones aware of? - Does the Oraquick (gum swab) test provide the 80-85% accuracy at 4 weeks some people seem to be claiming, or does this figure only apply to blood tests?
My neck sort of felt swollen and lumpy. I also had a very slight sore throat and occasional runny nose that came and went. I would feel as if I was getting a cold, then the sore throat would just go away. My period was also 2 weeks late, but I did get it. I had an acne breakout at the time. Irregular periods are not uncommon for me. The fever went away after the one week, and has not come back.
Since then this is two months I have had problem with swollen uvula in the throat, hoarsness and some wheezing on exhale, also swollen glands in the neck and burning pain in the neck area. I also have itchy forehead, with little rash. I am tired and worn out most of the time. Could this be some allergy or virus? I went to ENT today and he never said much, only that he wants me to have allergy tests done. It bothers me a lot lately!
I also have swollen glands most of the time which I relate to my Fibromyalgia. Sometimes my armpits get very sore and I'll notice the glands are swollen.
In January i got a sore throat and a swollen gland just under my ear lobe(about 1.5cm) about 3months later i got another sore throat and the gland below my earlobe was still there but they was a new one in my neck, just below my jaw. A few days later a skin infection came out around my lips(not itchy,peeled wen i didnt put cream on it and neva bled). It seemed like stuck on skin and when i put cream on it, the skin was coming off exposing my normal skin underneath it.
We are two days into the mystery rash syndrome. Today she is poorly - swollen glands and sore throat, very dehydrated. She had a headache last week but that has gone. She is a student - there has been a case of bacterial meninitis in her block recently but she is showing no sign of stiff neck or ongoing headache. She does not have a significantly raised temperature. Should I just keep closely monitoring or rush to bemused and off duty local GP?
Swollen lymph nodes may be aspirated (punctured with a needle and fluid drawn out to test). A significant middle ear infection could cause swollen glands in that area. Of course another process (dental, other infection, tumor, etc) may also exist. Lethargy is nonspecific and may accompany any condition being discussed and others. The response to antibiotics may indicate an infection existed. But why and where? Those are the questions needing answers to determine the problem is truly resolved.

ALSO, I NOW HAVE A HABIT OF PRESSING ON THE GLANDS, EVEN WHEN THEY ARE NOT SWOLLEN, WHICH ALSO CAUSES THE GLAND TO SWELL. IS THERE A SPECIALIST I CAN SEE FOR THIS PROBLEM OTHER THAN A PYSCHOLOGIST?
I have sore throat swollen glands, very itchy non stop and headaches. The itchiness ties in with Hep but do the gland swellings?
Discharge, itchy, red, red, eyes, etc. Headache too. I'm at a loss. It's the swollen glands on my right side that are concerning me. Thanks!
I have the same problem as this red swollen itchy eyelids. Don't have allergies like this. I do wear contacts--why would they cause this? I haven't been wearing the contacts for days now....
I had no fever and no other major symptoms of acute HIV. I just had some mild sore throat and slightly swollen lymph glands only when I had tonsillitis - just a few days!. Thank you.
I've had a sore throat and swollen glands on and off for about four weeks now. I just talked to a friend who went through the same thing in June. She went to the doctor...three times...and they kept trying different stuff to no avail. It seems that it might just be a stubborn virus that needs to run its course. At least that's what I'm hoping.
My lips swell first, then my fingers immediately..Then my entire face...I have some swollen tender glands on the right side of my neck also..I have bloodwork done every 3-6 months and the last couple of times my pottasium levels have either been too high or too low..I am scared because this happens so frequently..I usually end up in the ER to get a shot of benadryl...My esophagus is usually what sends me there..It swells and I can't stand the throat and chest pains I get..

My sinuses are constantly switching between swollen and open throughout the day. My throat and tongue will become very dry and feel swollen and it makes me very uncomfortable. I do not think that they are actually swollen, I do not have difficulty breathing (aside from the sinuses), I just do not have any better way to describe the feeling. I am usually fine in the morning and miserable by the end of the day.
Hi Everyone, I've been experiencing swollen ankles, my left one more swollen than my right one, even if I don't stand for a long time. They're even swollen after being in bed all night. I'm athletic, fit and not overweight. I have two questions: 1) is the edema a sign that HCV is progressing? and 2) can liver ultrasounds reveal mild fibrosis? My stats: 53, female, geno 1 VL 11 million infected 25 years/blood transf & frequently symptomatic (fever, swollen glands, fatigue, weak, etc.
Two and a half weeks ago, I had unprotected vaginal and oral sex with a new guy I'm dating. Two days after our encounter, I woke up with a red, itchy throat, swollen tonsils and a white coating on my tongue. I also had all of the symptoms of a yeast infection. I went to my doctor to have all of the STD tests run and am awaiting the results. I also was given treatment for oral thrush and vaginal yeast.
What condition could cause veins to show in the back of the throat? There is no white build up usually asociated with mono or strep or anything? Could it just be irritation? Story: Since August I've had swelling adenoids (left side) and Lymph nodes swelling in my throat on and off. I've taken two HIV tests well outside the window period. Going back to the ENT soon just wanted to see if anyone here had a heads up about something like that. It doesn't hurt at all. Thanks.
Could it be allergies? Everything I hear about allergies tho are itchy throat not sore throat - sometimes it hurts to bad I don't even want to swallow. It gets worse mid-afternoon and evening. I've gotten my air vents cleaned today to see if that will help for allergies and I picked up Zyrtec to try that as well..... Any suggestions on what it could be or should I just suck it up and go back to the clinic???!!!! Thanks!
I sense relief then the symptoms return. Most days I can hear but am constantly aware that my ears are itchy. The challenge is to not itch. If I itch, I usually get flaky stuff that I literally can lift off my inner ear.If I itch too much it becomes wet and begins draining a wet clear fluid. Then at night, whatever side I lay on clogs shut. In the morning there is thick crusty crud that again I try not to pick at. Im obviously in continual circle of symptoms here.
About 3 months ago I had my first episode with this. My hands got warm, itchy, and swollen. The swelling moved up to about 1 inch above my wrist. I went to the doc and he said it was angiodema. Gave me a shot of cortisone. One mone later my lower left lip started to swell and it move up the right side of my face. Went to doc and got another shot. Now about another month I got a episode on the left side of my face. Another shot.

I have been experiencing a cyst like sensation on the right side of the root of my tongue. It has been going on for almost a week. I have no sore throat, nor lymphoid glands swollen which might indicate that I have a throat infection. I am really worried as I can't even reach it myself to see and investigate as you do. Ideal thing would be to have it properly examined by an ENT, but in the UK NHS it is really a nightmare!
I've been doing that and it seems to not be getting any better, if anything it's getting worse. I still have red bumps on the back of my throat and my glands/lymph nodes are still a little swollen. What could this possibly be??!?! I'm concerned it's an early sign of an STD. I had unprotected sex about a month ago (2 weeks prior to getting the cold/prolonged sore throat). Thanks in advance for any help/advice.
hey i would just like to ask i have an itchy throat and sore throat for 1 year but i doesnt coz pain i have enlarge lympnodes my cbc are ok and normal my hiv test in one year is negative what is this?
I have had symptoms of fullness in the throat for about 11 years, which I think is swollen lymph nodes. Had a full body cat scan which shows no abnormal nodes but my armpits are really woleen now. I realize that this could be a precursor to lymphoma but I have not heard CFIDS mentioned in here at all. I think that many have CFIDS and because its a new "syndrome" and there is no real way to diagnose it, that many doctors will not recognize it as legitimate. www.cfids.
My boyfriend and i had sex last night and immediately after my vaginal lips became extremely swollen on the left side..i woke up this morning and they are still very swollen..My question is, is this normal?? And when do i expect the swelling to go away..and this was my first time having sex so can that play a factor in this or could it be that i might be allergic to the latex???
