Avatar m tn There could also be an allergic component. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Consult your primary care physician who will do blood tests and take a throat swab to determine the cause and prescribe appropriate medications Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I am uncertain what you mean by “throat allergies”. It might be wise for you to have your throat examined by a specialist in diseases of the throat (ENT specialist) before you take any further medication. Anti-histamines and other anti-allergy meds may not be dangerous for your baby, especially now as you approach the 3rd trimester of pregnancy, but if the use of these drugs can be avoided, it should be.
Avatar n tn When this happens, it is often a sign that, 1) the soreness is caused by something other than an infection (especially a possibility if your throat is only sore on one side). This is the type of soreness that can be seen with conditions such as Mononucleosis. or, 2) it is an infection but one caused by an uncommon bacteria or a fungus, an infectious agent not sensitive to standard antibiotic therapy. The apparent rise in temperature may or may not be abnormal but bears continued monitoring.
Avatar m tn I get occasional sore throat (usually on just one side), dry and scratchy mouth, ear aches, watery eyes, crunchy eyes, stuffy nose, etc. Allergies can come and go without warning, or there may be something new in your environment that's triggering them. My allergies went away almost completely for about 4 years but they're back now. You might want to talk to your doc about allergy meds. I take Flonase daily and it's helped a lot.
Avatar n tn On the other hand, the mucus could also be originating in your lungs, as is the case with asthma and chronic bronchitis. You might want your doctors to check that out.
Avatar f tn Several weeks later, the pain returned with some swelling in my throat. I called my doctors office and they called my prescription in this time. I picked it up and took it as prescribed. About 2 weeks after finishing the antibiotic the symptoms came back and were worse. The fluid in my ear was extremely annoying. I felt as if I had a ruber band around my neck. It felt somewhat restricted. Not difficutl to breathe, but restricted while swallowing with constent pressure in my throat.
Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Your symptoms could be due to Vocal abuse, which is due to excessive talking, throat clearing, coughing, inhaling irritants, smoking, screaming, or yelling. Vocal misuse is improper voice usage such as speaking too loudly or at an abnormally high or low pitch. Frequent vocal abuse can cause temporary or permanent changes in vocal function, voice quality, and possible loss of voice. This can be diagnosed by a throat examination.
Avatar f tn My symptoms are always the same I am short of breath, extreme fatigue, and I always have so much mucus in my throat. Over the years I usually take some kind of anhistamine and nose sprays and that drys me up and curtails the muscus. I became ill in Oct. with my usual symptoms and did the usual things, but now months later I am still ill, and more so.
Avatar f tn What will get rid of excessive mucus in the throat. it really interferes with my singing in the church choir.
422924 tn?1331767919 Yes, your symptoms could well be caused by allergies and, with that occurrence, carpet especially thick carpet, may harbor high concentrations of allergens, in particular the house dust mite and animal dander. That’s why your intending to remove the carpet is a good idea. However, get someone else to do it followed by vacuuming a wet mop scrub ideally with your windows open and a large exhaust fan.
Avatar n tn I think it is time!! I am sure that your son's friends are not continually sick, like your son. It is a good idea to make sure there is no other problem predisposing your son to these problems. This could be a sinus infection or other chronic situation. You might push your allergist a little to see what he/she thinks are the next steps in this evaluation. A sinus CT scan is an easy first step.
Avatar f tn As Heiferly stated above; allergies are common in both patients with Dysautonomia, as well as in the general population. Though patients with Dysautonomia are usually told to treat their allergies as histamine is a vasodilator. As for Mast Cell Activation, I've only recently begun to research its connection to Dysautonomia. Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of information available. Though from what I have read, it does seem that anything could trigger a Mast Cell reaction.
Avatar n tn Even when I'm sitting I have to make sure my neck is tilted back because if I tilt it forward it feels like there's something stuck in my throat and the pressure in my head gets worse. The last couple of days I've been getting dizzy spells, too, and a little queasy. I don't know what the deal is. I've never had this problem before, and I can't even remember the last time I was sick with anything. Thanks.
209987 tn?1451939065 hide in a piece of cheese.... There are many medications to treat allergies.....I'm surprised that your Vet didn't offer her something for some relief......Let me know what you think.....
Avatar f tn Well I just returned from my first softball practice and when I came home I had a very sore throat and a runny nose. As time progressed on it got worse and I began to sneeze nonstop. My runny nose has gotten worse. It's gotten so bad that I can't sleep because i'm constantly sneezing and blowing my nose. My eyes wont stop watering and they've turned very red. Is this allergies or is there some sort of diagnosis like this after a workout? haha. please help.
Avatar m tn You need to see an allergy specialist to determine if you have asthma and what triggers your attacks. Allergies cause your immune system to respond to a substance abnormally. They can produce severe reactions. Difficulty swallowing, problems breathing, swelled tongue, swelled throat and fainting is a few of the symptoms that allergies may cause. Some practitioners may use a combination of Chinese herbal formulas along with your acupuncture treatment.
Avatar f tn I've never had bad allergies before. In fact I would only sneeze once in a blue moon. But for a few weeks now my eyes have been itching so bad and I would itch them to the point that I've already had two infections of my eyelid on the left side.It would swell my eyelid almost till my eye was shut. I have a pretty bad history of staph infections. Also the roof of my mouth has been itching and when it starts to itch it will get these hard lumps on one side at a time.
Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, your symptoms are suggestive of Urticaria and is seen secondary to exposure to allergen and mediated by IgE antibodies. Your body is known to hypersensitive to certain things. In allergic manifestations there is release of histamines in the body which will cause dilatation of blood vessels leading to hypotension, dizziness and vision can become blurry. The magnitude of reactions differs from time to time and is unpredictable.
Avatar m tn well, last wednesday, april 16, i was outside with my son working on his playground when i got a scratchy feeling in my throat like a soar throat. i went to bed that night find, but the next day it was bothering me. i went to my ENT where they gave me a steroid shot and asmenex inhaler. Plus they were real strong about starting the imunotheropy. i chose to go to the drops. well, friday, april 18, i was doing fine all day and that night was working out on my sons play ground.
Avatar m tn A couple of weeks ago I realized that i was having trouble hitting higher pitches when I was talking. It also feels like theirs something in my throat. I cant sing anymore except in a lower tone without going up. I find my self running short on breath as I talk at times. Im not in pain, just curious about whats going one.
Avatar n tn Could just be something wrong with her throat if she has allergies or something like that. Also could very well be a tic. I would ask your doctor about this.
Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications.
351479 tn?1196690762 assuming you don't have a fever or body aches you probably have a cold, thats why you have phlegm and an itchy throat. As for your ears aching its because you have phlegm congested in your system. take a lozenge every 6-7 hours, drink lots of fluids but don't drink orange juice though because it'll make your throat itchier only take vitamin c when you feel like your going to get the flu or a cold or when everybody around you is sick.
Avatar f tn Hello, Sore throat in a particular season is due to seasonal allergies which may be due to pollen allergy or dust mite allergy. It can also be due to allergic rhinitis. Diagnosis is done by skin testing. A diluted extract of each kind of pollen is applied to a scratch or puncture made on your arm or back or injected under your skin. With a positive reaction, a small, raised, reddened area with a surrounding flush (called a wheal and flare) will appear at the test site.
Avatar n tn I'm usually inside in the a/c since it's so hot. Plus I'm 36 and never had allergies. I used to smoke in college but stopped except for a relapse from age 32-34, I don't know if this is related. Should I have a chest x-ray for lung cancer? My last x-ray was almost 3 years ago. The only medication I've used that seems to help is Benadryl but it completely knocks me out. Any ideas?
746512 tn?1388811180 This is the three year in a row that my allergies/asthma (or non-asthma who knows) is getting worse from middle of november into december. This can't be due to the cats since I am down one cat now and I have NO ALLERGIES in the spring with increased shedding. It is worse when I go outside and if I'm in and out at work or if it's busy and the door is constantly opened and closed I also have worsening symptoms.
Avatar n tn The best treatment for mold allergies is avoiding mold in the first place. But if you live in a place where mold is unavoidable, your doctor can offer additional help. You may need an antihistamine medication to control your symptoms. In severe cases, your doctor may prescribe a series of allergy shots to help reduce your sensitivity to mold. There are also extra steps you can take to keep mold under control.
Avatar f tn Sinus infections can cause stuffiness of the nose with nasal blockage, which can make breathing through the nose difficult. It can also cause post nasal drip and lead to an irritation/infection in the throat. There are tubes called 'Eustachian tubes' which connect the middle ear to the throat, this balances the air pressure in the ears. This tube can get blocked due to infections of the throat, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears.
Avatar n tn Giving up cigarettes will abolish smoker's cough in 90% of people. Talk to your GP about the other causes for cough in the meantime you could try warm salt water gargles and breathing exercises. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
