Common Questions and Answers about What does a throat infection look like


Avatar m tn Approx 7 days after I started getting flu like symptoms. This developed into a fever, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> and headaches. The original blisters have since started to heal, but the area has spread. Freaking out that this is herpes. Location is base of the scrotum, near base of penis http://s2.postimg.org/5rx5vh29l/MG_2535.
Avatar m tn you go and be seen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> you would for any other sore throat. while your doctor is feeling your neck and stuff, just casually say -do you think this could be an oral std ? I've given unprotected oral sex recently and can't help but wonder about it. - that's a good way to start the discussion :) you have every right to ask to be alone with your doctor. if they have med students, you can refuse them too. it's all part of your rights as a patient.
623944 tn?1244039090 I hate to dx someone over the internet, but it really sounds a whole lot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>what</span> I have gone through with lupus. You said all your labs are normal except the ANA, MPV and Monocytes. Did you mean MCV? If so, that means your hematocrit is off. It reflects the size of the red blood cells. Increased values may indicate macrocytic anemia or vit B or folic acid deficiency and decreased values may indicate microcytic anemia possibly caused by iron deficiency.
Avatar m tn A week later, I contracted a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> for a few days with a sinus head cold. One day that week - I looked into my mouth to my tonsils (something I never really did before) and noticed a little half-soybean size white pimple above my left tonsil. It is situated in the arch right above the tonsil (not on the tonsil itself - I think..). I have kept an eye on it for all this time, and it hasnt changed in size or bothered that area. My tonsils never appear swollen or inflamed.
Avatar f tn it started before he got the antibiotic though, and before the MRSA <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> was diagnosed. And this all started with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>what</span> I thought was a virus. Do you think he should get a sputum culture, and is that even possible when he's not coughing? Thanks again for all your advice, you've been very helpful, which is very much appreciated.. it makes this a lot harder that he's in another country and I can't talk to the doctors there.
Avatar f tn My 8 year old daughter has a reoccuring <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> that requires antibiotics. She took 7 or 8 rounds of it last year and again this year seems to be getting it again. I do not want her to build up antibodies or become allergic to it. I know antibiotics are good here and there, but too much isn't good for you and if I can find a way to help her avoid her throat infections, I'd like to eliminate the need for antibiotics.
Avatar f tn my wisdom tooth has been bothering me for two days, this pain has lead to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> and into my ear as well as caused a headache. i went to the dentist and he's told me that i have a infection although the problem is that I'm deathly allergic to penicillin and all five of them that fall under the category of penicillin. So in the end I'm screwed for antibiotics and so far have no way to kill the infection.
1138565 tn?1297107912 I am not suggesting you have MS, I am not a doctor, nor do I know a whole lot about it. I'm just learning now but it seems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> we share quite a few symptoms to a greater or lesser degree. Perhaps research your symptoms, ask people you trust, continue to search and keep your chin up! Good luck.
Avatar m tn The only way to know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>what</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> blister s are is by having them swabbed and a pcr test performed. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> this answer your question?
Avatar n tn I keep taking him to the doctor and they keep treating him with antibiotics saying he has allergies that have caused an sinus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. We recently went to a Rheumotolgist who ordered a lot of blood workup and told him that he had a swollen thyroid. The lab work came back to say that his thyroid levels were fine. He dose have a low Vitamin D level because he is a police officer that works strickly nights. They put him on large doses of Vitamin D.
Avatar f tn I decided to get a flashlight and take a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>look</span> for myself. And <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>what</span> I saw was not a pretty sight. Should I be worried especially since my throat is hurting.
Avatar n tn Hi there I got two white marks on both my tonsils and thats it they aren't really red or soar I haven't had any fever or soar body parts or anything I get soar throats at least once a year so I know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>what</span> the pus and lines <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>look</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> from other soar throats and know my symptoms and this isn't like that. Today I was sick but I think that was cause I took two birth control pills cause my doc told me to for other health reasons.
Avatar m tn i went to get checked and my they told me it was just my subaceus glands, but i had never had that many before.i've been having a burning pain in my penis, and a soar <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> on and off.of couse i am going to get tested. i just wanted to know if this sounded like herpes, im afraid that's what is is.
Avatar m tn About 2 days after the intercourse, I would feel nearly consistent burning and tingling at my glans. This sometimes felt a bit more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> a shooting/stabbing pain. This continued for about 4 days. It does not burn when I urinate. No fever, sore throat, swollen glands or anything of the sort. I saw a urologist today who looked at it for 3 seconds and says it's "definitely an STD', he thinks HSV2.
Avatar m tn ( I was tested negative the 1st time I was tested) after i noticed redness which <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>look</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> bruising which I have had before due to very rough sex. I havent shaved in over a year either but I did this time and cut myself and one of the blister has a hair coming out it. But the other blister is on my lybias and on is growing larger. I have a really bad sore throat with a white bump on my left tonsil and it sore extremely bad to swallow. I also have lymoh node swelling on my left in the grion area.
Avatar m tn regular MDs usually use a test that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not accurately confirm a Lyme <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>, but Lyme specialists usually use a test that IS accurate in confirming a Lyme infection.
Avatar m tn Thyroid-Fine Diabetes-Negative (Although blood sugar slightly out of range) General blood testing- Ok (neutrophils that fight bacteria 2 points out of range at last blood test), overall white blood count within range CT head scan-Normal Food allergy testing shows no allergies Doctor has tried (Metronidazole)Makes symptoms 10x worse Nystatin and diflucan make symptoms feel 10x worse GP a while ago said i had a sinus infection.
Avatar m tn I would also be worried if you have a different <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>--encephalitis or meningitis. I think <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> will probably show up on a lumbar puncture. Had your doctor talked to you about getting an LP? There are other causes of these symptoms, too, besides MS there's TIA (mini-stroke), vitamin B12 deficiency, pinched nerve autoimmune disorders (lupus, Sjogrens, etc.), migraines, and even an underactive thyroid. I hope that your neuro will get to the bottom of this.
Avatar n tn At first the bleeding was light then kind of dark then back light. I had some clots but i don't know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>what</span> to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>look</span> for as a sign of a micarriage. I've heard that they are mostly painful and there is one big clot/block of blood, but I just don't know. This is my first pregnancy and i am just worrying b/c I want erverything to be alright. Please, Please help me!
Avatar n tn My questions are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> this sound <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> a cold sore at all? It hasn't formed a scab or crust but also keep in mind this is because it is inside my lip where a scab is unable to develop due to the moisture.
1243799 tn?1270804607 when i carry things i feel like i'm going to fall over. i have a hard time focusing... i feel <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> i'm in my own world sometimes when people are talking to me... and i slur my words or say them in the wrong order. i used to be such an energetic person... i ran 40 miles a week and was always on the go... now i'm worn out simply from going to the grocery store. i haven't been able to work in 2 years!
Avatar n tn sounds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> it to me in my humble opinion.....I'm sure not a doctor, only a fellow MSer. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> it take a few years to get a clinical diagnosis of MS...YUP! took me 3 yrs to get mine! Now after sooo many years of struggling with this disease with no Cure; I began to read and do research on the similarities between MS and Lyme and so many others Fibro, Lupus, ALS etc etc... found out I got lesions from the lyme disease! found out lots more too.....
Avatar n tn after continuous days with a feeling like there's something stuck in my throat (painless) just turned to painful, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> a sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> started to sting whenever i swallow. after a day and a half my nostrils started to hurt. it stings whenever i breathe in and out. and then my throat completely stopped hurting for a few hours but my nostrils still stings. after the stinging sensation stopped, i could feel the same "something stuck in my throat"!
Avatar n tn She prescribed a z pak and i'm only on the 2nd day pill but from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>what</span> it looks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> is still red. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>what</span> could this be? How long does it usually take for the medication to work? I'm very concerned it's something more than a sore/red throat.
Avatar n tn Curiously though, I have never had a sore throat, lymph nodes were never swollen. Also...a few weeks ago, I drank two beers. It felt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>like</span> my kidneys had shut down. I drank a lot of water after and didn't have to urinate for six hours despite the beer. I believe I am having trouble fighting off mono because my lymphocyte count is down. My doctor has not suggested any further testing and doesn't know what could be wrong. 1) what could be wrong with my kidneys?
