Laryngitis and strep throat

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis and strep throat

laryngitis

Okay, since 1992 I have had lots of throat infections in 1995 I had my tonsils and adanoids removed to help however it never did. And still had aleast 7 throat infections and laryngitis a year but since January this year I have had 20suvere throat infections all with laryngitis.
I was then tested for allergies and supposedly they're pretty bad they want me to get shots. Anyway, both my husband and I have had strep throat this spring 3-4 times each. My question is, is it possible my laryngitis is caused from being a carrier of strep? Or, can allergies really cause this hoarseness? I do tend to notice a lot of phlegm in the back of my throat. I'm just so confused!!
Told work that I will be late and went to a walk-in clinic. I was diagnosed with Strep Throat (or a strep-like throat infection) and complete laryngitis. I was given Amoxicillian (tid) and a numbing mouthwash to gargle with (qid).
I was diagnosed with Strep Throat about 2 weeks ago. I went one week taking Amoxicillin 3 times a day. By the next Monday, I was worse. I called my doctor, who changed me to Azithromycin. My laryngitis is better. Most of the sore throat is gone. However, I still have sore swollen glands, and I still have a large white pocket in my throat (Next to my Faucial Pillars). Is this typical? How long should I give it for the white patch and gland stuff to go away?
Hello, It could be laryngitis, phyrangitis or tonsillitis, needs to be evaluated clinically. Meanwhile get a throat swab and sputum cultures done to find out the causative organism – bacteria, so that an appropriate antibiotic can be started. Rinse the mouth with luke warm water with anti septic solution added in it and have vitamin C supplements.
I would goto an ENT specialist and have you tonsils checked out, and checked for strep, mono and laryngitis. Keep in mind there is all sorts of **** that can get stuck in your tonsils that can cause this and only a doc and prescribe antibiotics.
I tried an antihistamine and didn't matter. I thought of strep but since she had no other indicators and is continuing extracurricular activities without complaint I figured wasn't strep. Not really sure.
I started to get my voice back and then I got a severe sore throat and it hurt to swallow and felt like my throat was swollen and it also felt like I had blisters on the back of my throat. My doctor told me to take regular mucinex to help with the pnd and to call back if it didn't get any better. After that was when my throat started hurting really bad. I've had a sore throat for almost 3 weeks now, and the severity fluxuates. And now my nose is very clogged and feels swollen.
By monday evening I had congestion and a cough with a sore throat. By Wednesday morning my sore throat had become so bad that couldn't sleep Tuesday night and decided to go to the doctor. At the doctor I mentioned my ear was hurting as well and associated it to the sore throat. She looked into my ears and told me she say red and bulging. Also she did a strep culture and sent to the lab. She treated me with a 10 day x2 a day 875mg dosage of Amoxicillin for an ear infection and strep.
I had a horrible fever, cold chills, back and neck ache, and a horrible sore throat. I couldn't swallow almost because it was so inflamed and painful. After a couple of days my fever and all the other symptoms went away, but the sore throat lingered. Yesterday it went away almost completely. I had just a touch of a sore throat, but it was almost gone to the point where I barely noticed.
I am still short on energy and have a lot of post nasal drip., headaches, laryngitis, very sore throat and get periods of shortness of breath. The doctor gave me a prescription for a cough suppressant. He said it's a virus. I do have white patches on the opening to my throat and the surrounding tissue is pale. I've tried a netti pot, ginger and honey tea, garlic, etc. I can't get relief!
I need to for me as it's all I think of. Tested positive for strep, took two rounds of azithromycin, throat better at times, but still not perfect. Taking Prilosec for acid reflux, better at first, but back again. Please share what you found out.

It can also cause heart burn, barrets esophagus, where food gets stuck in throat, and eventually throat cancer, if left untreated. If your dr mentions this again, suggest getting a second opionion, from a Gastro doctor. It took me a year to finally get a right dianoses. Good Luck, and let me say the meds have been a lifesaver for me!
I went to the doctor yesterday and the nurse practicioner told me I don't have strep... she thinks I have laryngitis and pretty much told me to just rest it, which I've done to no avail. It seems to be worsening by the hour. I'm starting to wonder if her diagnosis is correct... or should I go see an ENT? I'm wondering if the coughing/choking fits are related to whatever is going on now? Thanks so much for reading.
I have to go see an infectious disease doctor in two weeks because my results showed heavy growth of beta hematolyic strep in my throat. It is NOT group a, c, or g. What is it?? Also, I have low B12 and my bilirubin is raised to 1.7. Any docs out there know what causes this? is it autoimmune?
I have been going through quite a stressfull time and been quite emotional and at times there seems like theres something stuck in my throat.. i have had a throat swab done and there is no infection and i also have no pain. it is starting to get me down.. i try to bring up phelgm but nothing really comes up but clear stuff. Can anyone help?
My doctor said it was a virus, she ruled out strep with my negative results, and she gave me some cough syrup so that it would soothe my throat and be able to swallow, and said to come back on Monday if I lost my voice completely. Well, the weekend came, I slept all of Saturday, drank more hot tea than ever before, drank apple juice, laid low for a while.
I am 35 year old male.Let me start from beginning.Back in May went to Clinic because of pain in my testicle.After speaking to doctor and telling him I had unprotected Anal sex with girl I started feeling pains.He tested me and said I must of got bacteria thru my eurethra.Tested for Chlam. & Gonorrrea and Strep throat and was cleared.I believed he said it was Urethritis.He gave me Zythromax and Cipro.Everything seemed to be fine after that.
You seem to have acute laryngitis and pharyngitis.The sore throat indicates infection and there can be associated lesion on vocal chords and larynx. Allergic manifestations may be associated with breathing difficulty and skin manifestations. Acute laryngitis is self limiting condition and vocal cord lesions needs voice rest. Along with it general measures like salt water gargling, fluid intake etc. Throat swab will help to identify responsible pathogen and need to take appropriate antibiotics.
About a week after finishing the 21 day round of Anitbotics, he was retested for strep and was negative around his anus but show barely positive orally(very very faint blue line). He was prescribed another round of antibiotic (double dose of Zithromax). Before we began giving him the Zithromax, he began have more severe stomach cramping, diaherra, & alot more blood in his stool.
Any ideas what this may be. Being that there is no pain I ruled out tonsilitis and strep, but I'm no doctor so I could be wrong. I was also considering oral thrush, but it's just localized on my tonsil. Could this just be plaque build up or is this in fact something worse?
He said that there's nothing in my throat. But there was a little phlegm in there and I had a small case of laryngitis. I also have bad sinuses and a recent sinus surgery. So it could be post-nasal drip but the throat thing comes and goes at weird times. He says it could also be silent reflux. But why would it start now? It doesn't seem to appear after certain foods. Cough drops can help the problem for a little bit. Also, I feel that it gets a little better after eating.
I have been sleeping soooo much trying to beat this laryngitis and I pretty much have. Ya, you and me are in similar situations. Part of me says no way, if it were really herpes, it would be on my fingers and in my eyes, etc. as I have looked when I have the tears and swelling, wondering what the hell it is. Then part of me says dryness, yes and like you, has been much worse lately too. Are you even close to my age?
I frequently get strep throat, tonsillitis, laryngitis, at least once a year, and none of the familiar symptoms other than sore throat and immense fatigue have surfaced. Saw the doctor today and explained that oral sex was performed prior to the sore throat and was given a urine test for gonorrhea and chlamydia. Doctor said he did not think it was strep, but did see red spots in the throat. Also gave me a full STD blood panel and swabbed my throat for strep.
The only problem is that I keep coming down with either strep throat, pharyngitis, laryngitis or the h flu every other month. I just recently came down with strep throat again and I'm wondering if there is anything that I can to to prevent getting sick. It as if I get it as soon as someone with as much as a cold walks by! Help! I'm tired of being sick and I know that being on antibiotics this much is not good!
Who stated I have acute laryngitis. I have had a sore throat now going on 4 weeks... So paranoid checked and saw that laryngitis is a symptom of HIV? So I ended up in the emergency again. I have no other symptoms asides from this.., Can you please help and let me know what are the chances of my test turning positive? Can the 3rd generation test at six weeks be reliable?
This is not the type of soreness you might have with strep for GERD- it feels more like the pain which might occur if you are struggling to choke back tears. I have also lost a lot of vocal range and my throat/voice feel sore and exhausted after just minutes of talking. (Fortunately I am a stay at home mom and am not required to talk a whole lot.) The Lymph nodes under my jaw are also always swollen and readily palpable- though they vary in size throughout the day.
constant sore throat,constant throat clearing trouble swallowing and right side of neck is swollen below ear and losing my voice sometimes
Her asthma inhaler was useless since it's upper airway. She was at the Dr on Thurs for sinusitis and negative strep so now we know why it wasn't strep. Will call her Ped today to get a script for Prednisone. Been years since she's been on that and hope for a better night -- this came out of the blue and they say the 2nd night can be the worst of 3. 17 .... she used to get croup as a toddler/child all the time but it's been years. All I've read here says it's rare in an adult.
