Common Questions and Answers about Why is my throat sore red

sore

I dont know very much about stds, but i found only one red bump right on my vagina and my throat is really sore. I havent had any sexual contact with anyone. I dont know whats going on! HELP!
My throat has been sore for almost a month now. There has not been much discomfort expect for the few odd days. It just looks a fairly red and sore. There are no bumps or puss associated with this. Though on the side of my cheek (inside my mouth) on the left side I can see a small circle where the top layer is skin is gone, but again no real signs of bumps, sores etc so I don't know if it's related. Overall, I have thought this could be a viral form of tonsillitus.
stomach pain seems to have subsided and bowel movements seem fine (I looked up side effects of Pseudoephedrine and stomach cramps and diarrhea were listed, so that may have been a contributing factor to that small episode). However, my throat is still sore, once again got worse at night. Pseudoephedrine pills seem to be doing absolutely nothing. I've been continually drinking water and monitoring my temperature (which remains to be at or below 98.6).
I was a little tired and achey but also out walking in the rain. 9/27 my throat is no longer sore. Tongue coloring is still off but not painful. Top and tip of my tongue is tingling a little still colored. 9/28 Top and tip of my tongue is tingling a little still colored. Bottom inside lip feels a little numb and maybe a bit swollen. I had four 330 miligram pills of clindamycin (sp) which I took 9/26 and 9/27 (three and then one). My question is what if anything is this?
I am feeling fatigued. What is chance that the red bumps are HSV-2 in my mouth? I don't have any HSV-2 symptoms on my genitals (it's been about 36 hours since the possible exposure).
i also saw some grey/silver patch at the back of my throat.. i went to see a doctor and he says my throat's red, but not sure why it's not resolved after such long time, so he just prescribed some antibiotics for now.. it's now on the 4th days of my 6-days antibiotic treatment, but i still have sore throat... i am non-smoker and rarely drink.. so i duno what's wrong with my persistent sore throat, help..
It's been 6 months and my throat is still hurting and tonsils also. It goes away for a day or so then comes back. I had my HIV tests at 10-11 weeks come back negative and I have been tested for everything but herpes and it also came back negative, this was back in April. My armpits gets itchy and sometimes hurt there are no swollen nodes though but sometimes my groin nodes get bigger but dont hurt. I also noticed I started to get like a rash with a few tiny red sores on my shaft.
i took a hiv test 10-12 weeks after any possible exposure but am stvll very worried..is this red mild sore throat that wont clear up a sign to be worried about? Thanks every1.
I've also noticed a slight ear ache radiating from my throat, and the back of my neck is somewhat sore and tight. So finally went to a doctor 3 days ago and explained the above symptoms. Doc took a strep test, and I was given amoxicyllin prescription just in case. The intial test came back negative, and just found out the culture results were also negative. However, was recommended, regardless of results, if not feeling better by today to start taking presciption and see what happens.
2. Is this sore throat a sign of the herpes? It's day two with the sore throat, no fever, no cold, no runny nose.
Does this sound like ars (bad sore throat for 5 days, fever, but no other symptoms? 2. My normal temp is about 97; therefore, is 98-99 a potential ars fever in my case? 3. Is it a concern that the my penis was limp and the condom was baggy and not covering my whole penis when she withdrew my penis? 3. should i get tested for hiv now? Thanks so much.
Then i tested hiv 1/2 rapid test it came negative on 16th april that is 4 weeks .. But my throat changed through out the month some times it tenders a bit and sometimea a little pain in throat and the swollen right tonsil and white spot was still there.. Now on 28 th april 6 weeks i took the same test and was negative.. But i also had rash around 25 all over my body they were red and small ....
The saliva glands under my tongue were also sore. A few days into the sore throat I developed a small rash on my right arm on the inside of the elbow. Approximately a dozen small pimples, light pink to red. They didn't itch, but scratching or squeezing caused them to get a dark center. One week later the sore throat is mostly gone and the rash is beginning to fade. I am terrified now, though I did not start that way.
i got sore throats a lot too - so much that one of my doctors couldnt figure out why my throat was constantly so red and i didnt have tonsilitis! (he used to scream every time he looked in my throat hahaha - well not so funny i guess coz it was from thyroid) i started treatment (on synthroid) 9 months ago and have only been sick a few times (other than from the treatment - my dosage was way too high - am still trying to find the right level/drugs). the sore throats have gone away.
and is it always accompanied with fever?? My exposure is described below.... pls help me out of it.. !! I went to a Massage parlour in India.. The woman took me to a cabin which had a chair and a towel on top of it...(on the seating position). I opened my shirt and pants and she gave me a hand job....i did not have any cuts on my penis... but my balls(testicles).......had a small scratch etc (due to excessive itching).... well the woman asked me if i wanted her to apply cream or powder..
I'm not saying that it would be unlikely to have a sore throat, then a rash after the sore throat went away, but it is unlikely to be related at all to ARS. People get sore throats then rashes all the time. It doesn't mean anything.
I also noticed that I have small red dots on my soft palate and my throat is really hurting me. I dont't have a cough or anything like that, but before I had this sore throat I cried a lot, so I gathered a lot of mucus for the last two days. I read that when you gather a lot of mucus that it could be a reason why you could have a sore throat. The day that I felt my throat barely hurting I had a fever.
my child has fifth disease, and now has a very bad sore throat. They tested him for strep but that came out negative. Can fifth disease cause a sore throat, bad breath, and swollen tonsils? He has also developed a rash on his ears.
also I have problems in my nose that I breath from my mouth. Please help me and tell me if that Hiv and why do I have this chronic sore throat????
I looked in a mirror at my throat and I have red bumps along the very back of my throat and my tonsils are very swollen and have a weird white-ish mucus on them. I tried to swab it away with a q-tip, and when I pulled it out there was blood on the q-tip. Could this be the result of some sort of STD? Maybe herpes? Would it be able to show up that fast, or does it take longer for something like that to come about?
27/F-limited sex partners, protected. 2 months ago started dating a new guy. NO vaginal sex, just him fingering me/me performing UNPROTECTED oral on him. He has HSV-1. Asked if he is clean otherwise, he replied that he has been tested, & doesn't knowingly have anything. After the 1st time I performed oral I got a sore throat a day later. The oral sex lasted 4 quite awhile, & he has a large penis. He ejaculated into my mouth.

and clinition said my throat is a bit red... probably post nasal drip... Nothing over the counter has helped it though. Any thoughts?
I still have a drip in the back of my throat which is driving me crazy. I called the doctor today and his nurse called me and said he never heard of such a thing, but they will get back with me. I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not, but I do have a fingernail that is white and coming off the nailbed, which I would think is a fungus. I am also wondering if it has anything to do with the liver?
The left side of my throat(back of my mouth) on the side are 3 ulcers that look like canker sores and even farther back to the opening of my throat the area is swollen and red and whitish.. the other side of my thraot in the back of my mouth is wihte and looks like some parts are bleeding but are actually inflammed capillaries.. my doctor told me it was a virus and that it had nothing to do with me previous infection.

i'm sorry it wasn't awful looking but clearly some redness streaking and irritated. I know it was the cause of my sore throat at that time. My other sore throats really didn't look that bad in comparison.

I didnt think nothing of it because my kids (I am married) had colds. Well...it is now 3/9 and my throat is red and achey and so are my eustacian tubes (they tingle). Of course I very worried. I did have a hiv and gonorhea test about 19 days after the contact...both came back negative. I have read similar posts here on your board....but no one ever said what they had or what caused the sore throat, what cured it and how long. I plan on visiting a ENT (ear nose and throat specialist)....
