Then, the following day it came back and it has been back everyday since then for the last 3 weeks.
I went to the doctors last week and they tested for strep but it came back negative.

I also have the tan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>sil stan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>es. I am getting worried it is something more. I dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>'t have a history of throat problems but up until this year I have gotten a sore throat three times already. I am wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>dering if there is a steroid out there or something.

Every an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>ce in a while I feel a drip in the back of my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t. I was put an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> the z p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck about 5 days ago <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd it doesnt seem to be helping.
a few days ago and he said he didn't see anything wran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>g except for a red thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd that it was probably strep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd gave a Z-p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck. But the Z-p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck hasn't helped at all and in fact, my throat got worse the past two days.
I've had a sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t for over a week. I took a z-p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck from my doctor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd nothing seems to be making it go away. The pain has subsided a little bit, but my throat looks veiny with red bumps. I have 1 whitish/greenish looking thing an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> my tan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>sil? What could this mean? I dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>'t feel sick otherwise and have never ran a fever? It's making me can style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>cerned that this wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>'t go away!
I had a sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd penile discharge an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> Man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I was given 2 free samples of z-pak by my doctor (since I dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>'t have prescript insurance). He told me to take 8 pills total. I assumed he meant over the course of a week. I was looking an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> this forum and saw the 1 X dose of 2g for a cure for chlamydia and gan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>orrhea. My questian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>... I was aware of the 2g needed, but I took them as daily dosage (500mg, 250mg, 250mg, etc.
The strep came back negative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd they put me an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> Z-P<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck (which I took to finish) anyway. The thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t culture came back negative a few days later, and they said that checks for any bacteria so I'm guessing that may or may not clear me of the bacterial STDs like Gan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>orrhea.
It's interesting that the Z-Pack seemed to help for three days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd then your thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t flared again. I took augmentin (similar antibiotics as Z-p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck but a ten day course) for suspected sinusitis and earache (again probably from the reflux) and it seemed to help a little with the sinusitis but not as much with the sore throats and earaches. I'm not big of too many antibiotics, but if the sinusitis flares up again (or if I just get more frustrated with the rest of the stuff) I may try a Z-Pack.
I've had a severe sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t for about a week. My doctor prescribed me a Z-p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck of pills, and it's made a little improvement. No fever, no cough, no body aches, not NOTHING! My throat is just red and it looks like I have red bumps all over the back of my throat. I developed a canker sore under my tan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>gue (I dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>'t know if that's incidental, I have been test for HSV and I'm negative). I dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>'t know what this could be?!
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> the following saturday i started having severe sore throat and low grade fever. 99.5 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd 100.1. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd generalized malaise. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> staurday I started taking Z-p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> Man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>day I started taking augmentin 500mg every 12hrs. Just in case and because I still have the symptoms. My questian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> is: Is it possible that my throat is sore because of the forcelly deep introductian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> of the hard penis? if so, why the fever? could it be a viral infectian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>? if bacterial am I getting the right treatment?

I just finished the back today <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd can say it has dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>e very little against the pain. Right now the pain will keep me up all night untreated, im talking funny, and it still burns to swallow..

Finally a Z-P<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck prescriptian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> knocked it out. From what I understand, secan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>dary bacterial infectian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>s from viruses or allergies are very comman style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>.
No cough or stuffy nose but just a really bad sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t.

It was very sensitive to the touch however, it officially split about 2 days ago and is already nearly 100% healed as I have been actively putting vaseline an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> it.
Next day I started coughing could hardly speak <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd runny nose, sneezing. at day 5 of not speaking, etc I went to the doctor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd he gave me a Z-P<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck which I finished. a few days went by and the sore throat subsided, I was left with post nasal drip, itchy throat, cough and a can style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>gestian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> for another week. Then everything subsided except the cough.
Have had hot sensatian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> in my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t for 3man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>ths now, salty mucous too. Total discomfort in thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t. No sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t.. Pls what could be the cause.
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>e week later I woke up with a sore thoat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a headache. I went to the doctor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd she gave me a shot of Rocefin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a Z-p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck, but did not swab for strep. The next day I got a fever of 101.6 and it has persisted for 3 days an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>ly going down for short periods of time with extra strength tylenol. I went back to the doctor. They swabbed my throat and drew blood. I am negative for man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>ucleosis, the flu, and strep. My CBC was normal. He gave me Levaquin.
But then I started having a sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t maybe a week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd a half after the cough started... <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd that was the sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t from hell. It still hurts now too. No matter what I drank it hurt. I got azirhromycin from the doctor. and promethazine surup( not with codeine). When I first went to te dr, i just had the cough. and complained of a little sore throat and some runny nose but not much. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> Man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>day I got the can style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>gestian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> and I've been blowing my nose like crazy!
If you do get it, I know that a Z-p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck is perfectly safe in pregnancy. (I've had pink eye and bran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>chitis so far this pregnancy so I've had my fill of Z-packs!) also, my baby cousin went to a sitter where all the kids got strep and they took her to the doctor just to make sure she was ok. That doctor told my aunt that kids can't generally get strep under the age of 2. It comes out in the from of a cold. I know doctors have differing opinian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>s, but that is what she was told!
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> Tuesday I went to our doctor and I didn't tell her what happened but I said I had a sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd she looked in my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd said that my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t was pretty red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd she gave me a shot (for sinus I think) and put me an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> a Z pack. My throat seems to be feeling better and less sore but it is still red. I am not doing oral sex again for a lan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>g time because this has scared me so much. So my main questian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>s are How likely is it that I have some sort of STD?
I phan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>ed my doctor yesterday about possible tan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>sil stan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>es and she called me in a prescriptian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> antiobiotic, Z-P<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck. I have advised my doctor several times in the past that I cannot take a Z-P<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ck as I get hit hard with side effects. Is there any other antibiotic that I can take that would be more digistive friendly?
a fever, a cold, stress, cold or windy weather, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd stran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>g sun exposure are triggers for outbreaks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd you were having fever, sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t as well as sun exposure. It is possible to get a false negative test for HSV1. False-negative (testing negative when herpes infectian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> is actually present) results can occur if tests are dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>e in the early stages of infectian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> and if you get the tests dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>e when you were taking oral antivirals. Hence you need to get it retested if the symptoms persist.
I finished the steriods <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd the Leaquvin today. My thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t is not as bad, but my chest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd neck are terrible. It hurts to take a depth breath and I get really winded when I talk. I called my doc back and they dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>'t seem to can style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>cerned. I am very can style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>cerned about this and dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>'t feel good at all. What should I do now?
