Laryngitis and virus

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis and virus

laryngitis

It is inflammation of the larynx (voice box). It is mainly caused by virus and treatment depends on type of virus affected. Even serological tests will help to identify the responsible pathogens. It can be treated with appropriate anti viral. But drinking lot of fluids, sucking lozenges, gargle with salt water, breathing moist air to soothe sore throat, refraining from taking decongestants (because they dry your throat), resting your larynx will help you.
11 days ago I had unprotected cunnilingis with a girl I met at a club, although there was no intercourse. I now have laryngitis. Could there be a connection and, if so, what do I do?I hear that tests can sometimes take a long time to come back. My wife will get suspicious if I refuse sex. Thanks for your help.
She has seen several doctors and all blood work came back normal. she started out with a virus, diahrrea, nausa, severe sore throat and no fever. we are now supposed to see a larynologist who will scope again and do a possible mri. does anyone have any suggestions?
For 9 months now I have had a recurrent dry cough leading to laryngitis. I have recently developed a lot of phlegm coming up in morning only and some post nasal drip. I have had PFT(normal), chest CTSCAN (normal), Gastroscopy (normal). I have been diagnosed with GERD, Tracheitis, virus. I am going out of my mind. These problems started when I inherited 2 cats, but blood test revealed no allergy to cats.
Are the worse symptoms due to noro or rota virus? I am a 65-year-old female. I have low IgG3 and lectin pathway of complement and chronic sinusitis, hypothyroidism, hyperparathyroidism etc.
Hello everyone. I'm 25 years old and last August I was diagnosed with a severe case of Epstein Barr. I was hospitalized for a period of time and have since then recovered for the most part. 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.
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.
However, a side effect of both medications is laryngitis. I recently had laryngitis for 6 weeks. It started as a virus and would not go a way. I decided it was my atrovent neb (an anticholinergic like Spiriva). My allergist thought it was my Dulera (inhaled combination med like Advair). I eliminated the atrovent and reduced my Dulera and the laryngitis healed. She needs to discus any changes in dosage with her doctor before making changes.
The 2012-2013 vaccine (for N. America) contains two type A influenza viruses (H3N2 and H1N1) and one type B influenza virus. The number of active cases for '12-'13 is presently at epidemic level. Thus far, specific testing in cases of confirmed influenza is showing: **Nearly 80% are caused by type A (H3N2) influenza, **About 20% are caused by type B influenza and **Very few are caused by type A (H1N1) influenza.
Omgosh I'm so glad to find something on itchy lungs, i just got this virus bug and i'm not sure what it is, my throat is no lnger sore but i still have congestion and a lil in my lungs and when i cough they itch...
sometimes children this age can have what they call intussusception where the bowel telescopes into itself causing the pain and the blood possibly caused by a virus...it can resolve on its own but with repeated telescoping it can get stuck (dangerous).....its usually diagnosed with a barium enema or air enema but usually only at the time its happening....i would check with your pediatrician to see if this is a possiblity and maybe next time it happens go to er and have the test done....
Another home remedy I have used for sore throats and laryngitis is mixing honey and lemon. It works well. Pineapple is also good for the throat. strator and snook- That is great work you are doing, truly noble. If you reach just 1 person, you have done more than most.
I had a cold or virus, including laryngitis, followed by being out of breath and having an aching chest when I try to read to my children at bed. I get a slight fever (under 100) every afternoon for several weeks now and cannot walk across the room without getting out of breath. I am a runner, never smoked at all, and normally very fit. At first they said it was allergies and put me on advair, then when I got worse, said it was bronchitis and gave me antibiotics and an albuterol inhaler.
I have Ulcerative Colitis and that day and the previous 2 days I was a bit feverish (37.5C) and frail. Question: what are the odds that I contracted HIV from the third BJ which lasted for 60-90 seconds since I already have an autoimmune disease and was sick that day? REason behind this question: after exactly 15 days I got acne on my back and insect-like pimples: 3 on my abdomen, 2 on my wrist, 1 on my foot, and 7 on my tricep (quite itchy) ...
I'm told that it's allergies, which in turn allow some current virus to enter your system and stay there. I was told to try Zrytec. I may do that, but I just can't get used to the notion that the root is allergies. I grew up with allergies, and they didn't EVER make me weak like this, weak and depressed, with interpersed parts of the day when I feel I'm almost totally better, only to have it come back. I suppose you can develop a totally new allergy as you get older.
I'm afraid that since I've had oral sex with my husband that I could have transferred the virus to my mouth, particularly my throat. I had laryngitis a few weeks ago and had a little bit of a cold. My throat was hurting and then went away. The soreness in my throat came back pretty quickly after my cold went away. I feel fine now, it's just my throat that hurts. Please help, any suggestions would be great.
I was the top and my condom tore. When I noticed this, we stopped and I went and voided my bladder and took a shower. I went to the city clinic 21 days ( Nov 18th) post exposure and had a rapid elisa test, which came back negative, and they drew blood for a hiv RNA PCR test. Two weeks later (Nov 30th) I found out my HIV RNA PCR test came back negative. Of course, I was very happy about this at the time. I was told the RNA PCR test is sensitive enough to detect hiv virus at 12 days.
I have wresteled with a chronic parotid gland puffiness and irritation for years. It used to come and go before my tx'es, and then after tx, became more of a low key, chronic thing without the major swelling and without the return to complete normal either. The glands always seem slightly protruding, and sometimes feel a little stiff, or even tender....but most of the time feel painless.
Anyways, this week however I have come down with a bout of terrible laryngitis. My throat doesn't hurt though it is a little itchy and I can even speak. No fever or fatigue or loose stool, I just can't speak. This has caused my anxiety to ratchet back up 1000 times with my irrational little voice saying "it must be HIV, what else could it be." I was always planning on getting a test at the 3 month mark to put my fears to rest completely but any professional opinion would be great.
I have the constant Post Nasal Drip and throat clearing as a result of it. This has bothered me for about eighteen years and just keeps getting worse. Being a stand up comedian, this really hampers my profession. On December 8,2005 I was doing a show in Virgina and saw a local doctor there. She gave me Tussionex and within the hour of the first dosage the drainage stopped. The next week was wonderful as I was even able to cough up stuff for the first time in a long time.
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!
Days later, I was leveled when my voice totally disappeared. The laryngitis lasted for 10 days and reduced me to barely an audible whisper. After seeing a doctor and being treated with a Z pack antibiotic and cough syrup, my sinus infection improved, but I still have an unproductive cough. My voice has slowly come back, but is impaired and gets worse during the day and evening.
The virus that caused your chest infection could have effected your nose and sinuses also. An infection can cause inflammation of your nose and sinuses as well as your chest. Even after the infection has cleared, it is possible for the inflammation to linger. Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the mucous membranes that line the sinus cavities. Inflammation of the sinuses could be due to an allergy, an infection, or ongoing exposure to an irritant, such as pollution or smoke.
I currently have had a lingering scratchy (not really sore) throat, and have laryngitis that sort of comes and goes. Is this a sign of oral HPV? Is it possible I could have picked that up from the little amount of vaginal fluid on the lollipop? Could that in any way be related to why I had those flat warts on my hairline, or would that have likely been contracted elsewhere by direct skin-to-skin contact? Thanks.
In November-2nd week (after 11 weeks of the massage) I had a sore-throat for a few days followed by laryngitis. My doc said it was not bacterial but was some virus moving around and I could be contagious. I had 99 degrees fever and some mucous in my nose, throat. 1. My question is how risky is fingering for quarter-inch for 3 seconds? 2. Also are any of my symptoms consistent with ARS? Does ARS show itself with different symptoms weeks apart? 3. Should I get a HIV test?
Deep French kissing Her vaginal area was clean (no noticeable warts or lesions) and didn't emit any odors. Exactly 10 days after this encounter I got laryngitis and even though my throat is not hurting much, a lot of green mucous discharge does appear. 3 days later laryngitis is getting better but now I got a small fever. My usual daily temperature is between 97.9 and 98.6 (with average being 98.2-98.4) On the 13th day my temperature is somewhere between 99.2 and 99.
Full endocrinology screening, EKG, brain MRI, VNG test (inner ear test basically), and neuro exams all normal. I realize none of these tests would detect hyper-POTS, but surely a TTT would reveal something? Thanks!
I've been taking Mucinex D for the last few days and now just completely lost my voice. I've never had laryngitis in my life. I'm going to the ENT but have read there is a link to laryngitis and HSV-1....... Also, to add I got back blood work done for HSV-1/HSV-2 and they were both neg. Blood work done on the third week of Dec. I was happy about this. I'm in the GYN's office and she asks my after if she can take a look at everything externally yesterday and I say ok.
It started out as a scratchy/sore throat, then turned into me almost losing my voice (laryngitis), then back to a sore throat, and now it's a hacking cough with mucus in my throat and a little sinus congestion. Would you recommend I see a doctor? It's showing no signs of letting up and I am unable to hear out of my left ear from the congestion.
They never identified the virus. I thought about the sun idea but my hair is styled in such a way that my temples and forehead are covered. Also, my upper chest has no wxposure to sun or wind. I had been tested for autoimmune diseases but was a little concerned that maybe the "post viral syndeome" is turning into something like Lupus. I had been on Clonazepem but off for 3 weeks. Doctor has me on Zoloft to "settle" the nervous system . Does this ever happen?
