Laryngitis and virus

Common Questions and Answers about Laryngitis and virus


Avatar f tn It is inflammation of the larynx (voice box). It is mainly caused by virus and treatment depends on type of virus affected. Even serological tests will help to identify the responsible pathogens. It can be treated with appropriate anti viral. But drinking lot of fluids, sucking lozenges, gargle with salt water, breathing moist air to soothe sore throat, refraining from taking decongestants (because they dry your throat), resting your larynx will help you.
Avatar n tn 11 days ago I had unprotected cunnilingis with a girl I met at a club, although there was no intercourse. I now have laryngitis. Could there be a connection and, if so, what do I do?I hear that tests can sometimes take a long time to come back. My wife will get suspicious if I refuse sex. Thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn She has seen several doctors and all blood work came back normal. she started out with a virus, diahrrea, nausa, severe sore throat and no fever. we are now supposed to see a larynologist who will scope again and do a possible mri. does anyone have any suggestions?
Avatar f tn For 9 months now I have had a recurrent dry cough leading to laryngitis. I have recently developed a lot of phlegm coming up in morning only and some post nasal drip. I have had PFT(normal), chest CTSCAN (normal), Gastroscopy (normal). I have been diagnosed with GERD, Tracheitis, virus. I am going out of my mind. These problems started when I inherited 2 cats, but blood test revealed no allergy to cats.
Avatar f tn Are the worse symptoms due to noro or rota virus? I am a 65-year-old female. I have low IgG3 and lectin pathway of complement and chronic sinusitis, hypothyroidism, hyperparathyroidism etc.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone. I'm 25 years old and last August I was diagnosed with a severe case of Epstein Barr. I was hospitalized for a period of time and have since then recovered for the most part. The only problem is that I keep coming down with either strep throat, pharyngitis, laryngitis or the h flu every other month. I just recently came down with strep throat again and I'm wondering if there is anything that I can to to prevent getting sick.
Avatar f tn I have been sick off and on, more like on and on, for three and a half weeks. Many things going on so Ill start from the beginning. I orginally went to the Dr for dry cough and laryngitis. Was told I had bronchitis and was given antibiotics (bactrim). A week and a half later, I felt somewhat better. Suddenly two days later, I didnt go to the dr this time, I had sinus drainage hard core.
Avatar n tn My doctor said it was a virus, she ruled out strep with my negative results, and she gave me some cough syrup so that it would soothe my throat and be able to swallow, and said to come back on Monday if I lost my voice completely. Well, the weekend came, I slept all of Saturday, drank more hot tea than ever before, drank apple juice, laid low for a while.
Avatar n tn However, a side effect of both medications is laryngitis. I recently had laryngitis for 6 weeks. It started as a virus and would not go a way. I decided it was my atrovent neb (an anticholinergic like Spiriva). My allergist thought it was my Dulera (inhaled combination med like Advair). I eliminated the atrovent and reduced my Dulera and the laryngitis healed. She needs to discus any changes in dosage with her doctor before making changes.
572651 tn?1333939396 The 2012-2013 vaccine (for N. America) contains two type A influenza viruses (H3N2 and H1N1) and one type B influenza virus. The number of active cases for '12-'13 is presently at epidemic level. Thus far, specific testing in cases of confirmed influenza is showing: **Nearly 80% are caused by type A (H3N2) influenza, **About 20% are caused by type B influenza and **Very few are caused by type A (H1N1) influenza.
773755 tn?1328123377 there is very little on it in forums and online, and needless to say, mainstream doctors are clueless about it let alone being able to help. my voice loss was i think initially viral, but anyway it has not really recovered after 5 months. e.n.t ruled out vocal cord damage and thyroid causes. and said he didn't know much about c.f.s - i shouldn't be surprised. so it is very depressing and isolating. i can weakly say about two sentences then voice disappears. extremely distressing.
Avatar f tn You mentioned hoping it's a virus and that your GP prescribed you antibiotics? Did they do a throat culture? Antibiotics aware useless for viral infections and if over prescribed can result in antibiotic resistance. They should only be used for bacterial infections, which is diagnosed by a throat culture. If you have a cold virus, rest and fluids are your best friends.
392548 tn?1216614379 Omgosh I'm so glad to find something on itchy lungs, i just got this virus bug and i'm not sure what it is, my throat is no lnger sore but i still have congestion and a lil in my lungs and when i cough they itch...
Avatar n tn sometimes children this age can have what they call intussusception where the bowel telescopes into itself causing the pain and the blood possibly caused by a can resolve on its own but with repeated telescoping it can get stuck (dangerous).....its usually diagnosed with a barium enema or air enema but usually only at the time its happening....i would check with your pediatrician to see if this is a possiblity and maybe next time it happens go to er and have the test done....
Avatar n tn Another home remedy I have used for sore throats and laryngitis is mixing honey and lemon. It works well. Pineapple is also good for the throat. strator and snook- That is great work you are doing, truly noble. If you reach just 1 person, you have done more than most.
Avatar m tn I have Ulcerative Colitis and that day and the previous 2 days I was a bit feverish (37.5C) and frail. Question: what are the odds that I contracted HIV from the third BJ which lasted for 60-90 seconds since I already have an autoimmune disease and was sick that day? REason behind this question: after exactly 15 days I got acne on my back and insect-like pimples: 3 on my abdomen, 2 on my wrist, 1 on my foot, and 7 on my tricep (quite itchy) ...
Avatar n tn I had a cold or virus, including laryngitis, followed by being out of breath and having an aching chest when I try to read to my children at bed. I get a slight fever (under 100) every afternoon for several weeks now and cannot walk across the room without getting out of breath. I am a runner, never smoked at all, and normally very fit. At first they said it was allergies and put me on advair, then when I got worse, said it was bronchitis and gave me antibiotics and an albuterol inhaler.
Avatar n tn I'm told that it's allergies, which in turn allow some current virus to enter your system and stay there. I was told to try Zrytec. I may do that, but I just can't get used to the notion that the root is allergies. I grew up with allergies, and they didn't EVER make me weak like this, weak and depressed, with interpersed parts of the day when I feel I'm almost totally better, only to have it come back. I suppose you can develop a totally new allergy as you get older.
Avatar m tn The next day the bump became raised with a red barrier around it, the center was solid and hard and I could not pop it like a normal ingrown hair pimple and it had no pus in the center. As well the same day a red rash and large red acne breakout on my lower back-butt area was their (which cleared on its own in two days).
Avatar n tn I'm afraid that since I've had oral sex with my husband that I could have transferred the virus to my mouth, particularly my throat. I had laryngitis a few weeks ago and had a little bit of a cold. My throat was hurting and then went away. The soreness in my throat came back pretty quickly after my cold went away. I feel fine now, it's just my throat that hurts. Please help, any suggestions would be great.
Avatar n tn I was the top and my condom tore. When I noticed this, we stopped and I went and voided my bladder and took a shower. I went to the city clinic 21 days ( Nov 18th) post exposure and had a rapid elisa test, which came back negative, and they drew blood for a hiv RNA PCR test. Two weeks later (Nov 30th) I found out my HIV RNA PCR test came back negative. Of course, I was very happy about this at the time. I was told the RNA PCR test is sensitive enough to detect hiv virus at 12 days.
Avatar n tn I have wresteled with a chronic parotid gland puffiness and irritation for years. It used to come and go before my tx'es, and then after tx, became more of a low key, chronic thing without the major swelling and without the return to complete normal either. The glands always seem slightly protruding, and sometimes feel a little stiff, or even tender....but most of the time feel painless.
Avatar n tn I have the constant Post Nasal Drip and throat clearing as a result of it. This has bothered me for about eighteen years and just keeps getting worse. Being a stand up comedian, this really hampers my profession. On December 8,2005 I was doing a show in Virgina and saw a local doctor there. She gave me Tussionex and within the hour of the first dosage the drainage stopped. The next week was wonderful as I was even able to cough up stuff for the first time in a long time.
Avatar m tn Anyways, this week however I have come down with a bout of terrible laryngitis. My throat doesn't hurt though it is a little itchy and I can even speak. No fever or fatigue or loose stool, I just can't speak. This has caused my anxiety to ratchet back up 1000 times with my irrational little voice saying "it must be HIV, what else could it be." I was always planning on getting a test at the 3 month mark to put my fears to rest completely but any professional opinion would be great.
Avatar f tn I am still short on energy and have a lot of post nasal drip., headaches, laryngitis, very sore throat and get periods of shortness of breath. The doctor gave me a prescription for a cough suppressant. He said it's a virus. I do have white patches on the opening to my throat and the surrounding tissue is pale. I've tried a netti pot, ginger and honey tea, garlic, etc. I can't get relief!
Avatar m tn Days later, I was leveled when my voice totally disappeared. The laryngitis lasted for 10 days and reduced me to barely an audible whisper. After seeing a doctor and being treated with a Z pack antibiotic and cough syrup, my sinus infection improved, but I still have an unproductive cough. My voice has slowly come back, but is impaired and gets worse during the day and evening.
Avatar n tn The virus that caused your chest infection could have effected your nose and sinuses also. An infection can cause inflammation of your nose and sinuses as well as your chest. Even after the infection has cleared, it is possible for the inflammation to linger. Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the mucous membranes that line the sinus cavities. Inflammation of the sinuses could be due to an allergy, an infection, or ongoing exposure to an irritant, such as pollution or smoke.
Avatar m tn I currently have had a lingering scratchy (not really sore) throat, and have laryngitis that sort of comes and goes. Is this a sign of oral HPV? Is it possible I could have picked that up from the little amount of vaginal fluid on the lollipop? Could that in any way be related to why I had those flat warts on my hairline, or would that have likely been contracted elsewhere by direct skin-to-skin contact? Thanks.
Avatar m tn In November-2nd week (after 11 weeks of the massage) I had a sore-throat for a few days followed by laryngitis. My doc said it was not bacterial but was some virus moving around and I could be contagious. I had 99 degrees fever and some mucous in my nose, throat. 1. My question is how risky is fingering for quarter-inch for 3 seconds? 2. Also are any of my symptoms consistent with ARS? Does ARS show itself with different symptoms weeks apart? 3. Should I get a HIV test?
Avatar n tn Full endocrinology screening, EKG, brain MRI, VNG test (inner ear test basically), and neuro exams all normal. I realize none of these tests would detect hyper-POTS, but surely a TTT would reveal something? Thanks!
