I am not a happy camper with antibiotic use, however in some cases this is necessary. On the other hand the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> may be vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l and not due to bacteria. Unfortunately, many viral infections end up with a bacterial infection piggybacking. Lung infections can result min death. When you cough up the sputem examine it to determine the color. If it is yellowish or greenish the liklihood is the problem is bacterial.
It's probably an infection, painful glands are one of the symptoms. It could be viral or bacterial. I've had pain alternating from one side to the other too.
Loss of voice along with sore throat can be due to laryngitis (inflammation of the voice box), acidity with GERD causing inflammation of the voice box, vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> or bacterial one. Hence it is important to find the cause. Consult an ENT. Meanwhile do warm saline gargles, drink warm lemonade, herbal tea and clear soups.

I am still trying to recover from vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. I thought that it was sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. I was given allegra but havent used it yet. Instead, I am using a nasal spray and just trying to do old fashioned remedies: humidifier, running hot showers to losen phlem. I have been sick for 6+ weeks now. Still feel terrible.
SHe also takes Orapred when her symptons are bad and we are fighting to get them under control (usually when a vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> comes along or just a sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> or drainage in generl) LOVELY.
about the third week of august I came down with a mild sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t. Lasted through the morning and passed. Next day felt fine enough, but the following day had a headache and fatigue. Three days after my first symptoms appeared my wife followed suit. Since then we have both had a full range of coming and going symptoms that mimic each other a day or two apart.
thanks for your response. it could very well be strep as i have spent all day online researching the posibilities visa vie the symptoms .. but in truth, seems like it could be 3-4 other things based on my recent activies. one thing about the body aches .. i havent had the flu lately .. in fact in more than half a year .. so its highly doubtful that the body aches are being caused by that .. but its also possible that the body aches are being caused by something altogether different.
Sounds like you have congestion from either a vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l or bacterial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> or from an allergy. The mucus is dripping at the back from the nose. I suffer from chronic post nasal drip with the symptoms you describe, drives me insane too. The doctor prescribed me with a nasal spray to dry up the mucus. You can also try steam inhalations, take antihistamines in the event it may be a allergic reaction to dust or cigarette smoke or perfumes etc.
If the doctor hasn't taken any swabs (especially after 2 rounds of antibiotics) I would suggest one to them/see another doctor. Who knows, maybe you have a vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> instead of bacterial; maybe the bacteria you are infected with is antibiotic resistant. Either way, hard to tell, and those are the only things I can suggest.. Maybe you should investigate some natural health remedies if you are worn out from medical doctors.
My question is if 1. if the test result shows strep thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t but I have no symptoms and no sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t any longer, do I still need to take the antibiotics? 2. if the test result shows something viral or bacterial or fungal (but as I say, the red dots have almost completely disappeared), do I still need to take the antibiotics? Can such an infection get healed in any other way? Please an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>helpan>. Thank you.

But first I had the swine flu, followed by an ear inefection, then a sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>, and then the strep thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t. This was over the course of two months, without a rest between any illness. I was prescribed antibiotics for each issue, but now I have a recurring sore throat. I was blaming my stress from school on my illness, but I am now on vacay and I am still getting sick. I am good for a day, then I crash.
I am 10 W pregnant! started with sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t 2 weeks back, was even admitted in the hosp as oral meds werent staying in with vommitting due to infection had cased serious dehyderation. now the infection is gone but its been 5 days and i havent slept as having baaaaaaaad dry cough and pain in the ball of the throat.cant swallow even warm water. and thus bad headache.my doc nw refuses to give any oral meds( allopathy) as she is scared for the baby....
also, I've seen some studies online that said a lot of sinus infections were fungal, which is why antibiotics don't an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>helpan>. I know my doctor says this is vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l, but if it was vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l it wouldn't have lasted 7 months!
Hi Welcome to the Medan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>helpan> forum! You appear to have caught a vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l or a bacterial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> in the thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t from tongue piercing. It can also be a gastric reflux that is causing this feeling. Drink plenty of warm fluids like clear soups, herbal tea and warm lemonade. add a pinch of salt to warm water and gargle with it. Take Vitamin C. Take any OTC anti-inflammatory and decongestant medicine.
I've been suffering from the same problem my doctor has no clue but i have suspicions mold in my apartment and my mattress might be the problem along with a bad infection in my teeth i tried colloidal silver and hydrogen peroxide 3% solution and slept 6 hours without waking but after 2 nights it was back with a vengeance it is part vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l and deep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> and doctors don't look for these.
a vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> doesn't improve with antibiotics as these infections do. a virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread. a bacteria is its own living cell and multiplies and spreads on its own and is easier to destroy in that process. Speaking of outbreaks, influenza is finally reaching Palo alto right around now.
It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
I've just been diagnosed with staph, and though the infection was really bad a year ago, I'm not suffering much now -- the sores have simply persisted on my skin. after reading all of the above, I'm glad I resisted my doctor's suggestion to go on antibiotics for a month; I'm trying several home remedies now (vitamin C + antibacterial soap + daily shower + diluted alcohol on skin + probiotics) while I wait for the test results to come in.
Oil pulling is a new technique i'm trying but it seems to cut down on the swollen lymph nodes and amount of vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> build up. I recommened everyone suffering from sinus problems to try these 2 things. They aren't a cure but they an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>willan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>helpan> alot and keep you off antibiotics.
Because this illness seems to be a first for you it sounds more like some kind of a sinus infection or other respiratory <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. Possibly vir<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>l since the antibotics don't seem to want to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>helpan>. I'm 29 and I've had many similar infections, allergies seem to contribute to my illnesses starting. I've found that one of the best natural antibiotics is vitamin C. You can safely take large quantities, until you feel better.
epigastric pain/pressure/fullness, the sensation of food or something being stuck in the esophagus/thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t, belching, the sensation of being squeezed tightly by a rope or belt beneath the ribs/diaphragm, the inability at times to obtain a full breath, coughing. This has been going on for nearly 2-3 months and they are worsening. These are nearly the same symptoms I experienced while having gallbladder problems, except now there is no gallbladder! I do have an appt.
anyways, about 2 days ago I woke up with a horrible sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t. I only slept for 3 hours, and to the best of my knowledge I had no sore thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t proir to going to bed. I had smoked earlier in the night using a vaporizer (something i rarely do) as well as a spliff. I examined my throat in the mirror (something I've never really done before) and noticed that the back of my throat had various sized fleshy bumps (by fleshy I mean the same color as a healthy throat).
carisa- since you posted your EBV numbers are those numbers an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>whatan> you have all the time or was that during an active <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>? How could you tell (besides the way you felt) if the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> was active or not? Was there a difference in your EBV numbers during those times? I'm thinking I'll have my doctor run all my EBV tests again every few months to see where I stand.
My nose feels open, my thro<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>t feels open, my stomach stops feeling nauseated, my muscles stop feeling tight and achy, and I stop feeling that CONSTaNT string/ball in the back of my throat. Does anybody else here vomit this slimy, clear, ropey garbage?? I take allegra, I do nasal washes, I used Nasarel steroid spray.
I check my temp when I get these episodes and its perfectly normal. I do not have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> or am not sick. Im not even in a cold environment.
