Laryngitis strep

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis strep

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.
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 have been feeling really bad lately(exhausted, chronic laryngitis for the past 12 weeks). I am a school teacher and I had a bunch of tests done. 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?
Brought her to Dr today. Sure enough she has strep.
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?
It all started a few weeks back with laryngitis and post nasal drip. 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.
So went to the doctor two days later, told them I thought I had laryngitis becasue I could not speak, was tired, had a runny nose, and it was very difficult for me to swallow, but no fever and no coughing. 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.
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!
She had a 152 IQ participated in numerous advanced programs and activities. Was a normal child. In Aug she had strep. In October she had laryngitis/strep. October 30 she started having what appeared to be extremely long seizures. After video EEG etc found out that they were not seizures. She has had drastic mental decline. OCD that subsided after antibiotics were given for PANDAS symptoms. Speech changes like baby talk or apraxia. Labs came back with severe Celiac.
5 weeks after this episode, a very sore throat with fatigue appeared and has persisted now for nearly a week. There has been no fever or other symptom of illness. 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.
Three weeks after, I had a panic attack and ended up at the emergency where the Dr, did a swap for Strep throat- which was negative. Then sent me to an ENT specialist. 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?
Once I was on my daily inhaler I noticed that I wasn't getting sick as often until about 3 weeks ago I started to get a cold that turned into what I thought was laryngitis pretty much right away. Now I have been without a voice for almost 3 weeks. It hurts to try and talk and my throat feels really swollen. It also feels like my neck is bruised on the left side. It is really sensitive to touch.
No one that has been around me has gotten a sore throat so it makes me feel like it is not strep throat. I want to go to the doctor if it's necessary but I keep waiting to ride it out and hope it goes away so I don't have to pay for a medical bill. Is it common to have a sore throat for so long without having something more seriously wrong?
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.
How long has this been going on? Have you been running fever? This could be a number of things such as laryngitis, pharyngitis, sinus drainage, tonsilitis or strep throat. If the problem persists or becomes worse, you should consult your physician.
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. While on the antibiotics I started losing my voice. I took the full course of meds and during which my sore throat and ear ache went away and my voice returned. The day I stopped taking the medication I noticed my throat was starting to hurt again.
whick brings me to another point.... I have had bronchitis, laryngitis, mono, and strep throat all within the past year. I really don't know what's going on with my body. I get bad verta vego attacks to. Im still getting rib and back pain. I'm constantly tired...I could sleep forever and still be tired. I seem to be losing my appitite as well. The doctor doesnt know whats wrong with me because my abdomin is painful on both sides and not just one.
1)majority of my symptoms seem to have started shortly after a bout with strep throat and laryngitis. Is it possible that this irritated my vagus nerve and had somehow precipitated my symptoms (including the PAT?). 2) If irritation of the vagus nerve can or is the main cause of my problems, what can be done to resolve it? 3) Can hypoglycemia cause the same symptoms that I've been having?
No spots on my throat or tonsils, so I don't think I have strep. My lymph nodes feel swollen also. Other than the fever and stiff neck I had a few days ago, no other symptoms. I should note that I had mono once when I was 17, but that was over 10 years ago and this really doesn't feel the same to me. Can anybody offer any insight? I don't have health insurance so I'm reluctant to go to the doctor if this is something I can clear up at home.

It's suppose to take a week to receive those results. He saw that my vocal chords are swollen which has caused what I thought was laryngitis but it had gone on far too long for that. He referred me to an ENT for the vocal chords. My problems actually started with a bout of strep throat. After a couple rounds of antibiotics, I developed oral thrush. Then it was pneumonia. I've had almost 4mo of pure H!!! I hope an expert will hop on here and help you out.
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.
Hey dude!! Ask yur doc if it is strep. Unlikely to be strep, but still ya need a trip to the doc. Drink two full cups of water when you wake up in the morning. At suppper, drink any thing without caffeine or sugar.Example: milk, water, applejuice, anything yummy to ya without the stuff above. The best place to get info is the doc, not i.
