Common Questions and Answers about Sore gums strep throat


Avatar m tn Seen my doctor and he put me on Amoxicillin. My strep cleared up for the most part (the white crap all over my throat). Throat is still sore and have ulcers in a few places around my mouth. Not to worried about that, what does worry me is now my gums are killing me. I cannot even tough them with a brush. No blood as of yet from them. Is this the last of the infection retreating?
Avatar f tn The first couple of days, I did not have a sore throat. The third day, I developed a sore throat as well as multiple canker sores on my gums and way back near my wisdom teeth. My gums in certain areas are tender and feel blistered and the roof of my mouth has the same feeling as if I burnt it on something hot. I have been using "Kanka" to numb my mouth because it is almost impossible for me to eat, but other than that, I don't know what to do or why this has happened.
Avatar f tn Every illness with both sore throat and fever should be professionally evaluated. The concern is not STDs, but strep throat, mononucleosis, etc. But if no real fever, you can safely just sit tight and wait for it to clear up on its own -- but still see a doctor if sore throat lasts more than another week or so.
Avatar m tn , red rash on left wrist, sore throat and strep throat, sore and burning gums). All of these according to various articles on the Internet are early signs of HIV.

Avatar n tn I took Augmentin 500 3x/day for 10days. After the 10days I still had a sore throat that feels like an ulcer down my throat, and I also still had about 10 mouth ulcers as well as swollen gums. I went to my Internal MD and he put me on Medrol dose pack and Levaquin. This initially helped w/ the mouth ulcers but the one down my throat got much worse. I was given a Celestone inj and put on Orapred. Also taking Pepsid. Throat neg for strep and mouth ulcers neg for Herpes.

Avatar m tn I have had a sore throat for almost 14 days now, accompanied by infrequent stabbing pain in my jaw. I know that it's not normal to have a sore throat for this long (it's on my right side, same side as jaw pain) and I'm starting to become concerned. I saw a dentist, thinkin that it was tooth related, but the dentist said he could not attribute it to any tooth problems. He took my temp, felt glands, applied pressure to gums. Nothing, but the pain still persists. What could it be ?

I have 4 on my lips, 4 on my gums and 2 on my tongue... my gums are swollen and my tonsils have many white spots on them... i still struggle through eating even ice cream and have lost about 10 pounds (which is not a good thing when you have very little to lose)...
Avatar f tn I woke up last Friday very fatigue with a very sore throat. As the day went on I felt like my gums on the right side were sore and I thought it was maybe due to my bottom impacted wisdom tooth. The pain seem to get worse and worse. My throat neck and mouth was very sore. The back of my throat was very red and I could feel the lymphadenopathy on the right side of my neck. The area where my gum hurts looked like a sore was forming right around there.
Avatar f tn The sore throat could be due to an infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain.
Avatar n tn If do you it could be a strep throat. IF no fever and no pus but just a red throat it maybe a virus. It should pass in a couple of days if it is a virus. If it dosen't get better then see a doctor and be honest about the oral sex. They can easily do a throat swab for GC and also a culture for strep throat or a rapid strep test and culture. Hope this helps.

Avatar f tn All of a sudden, a couple days ago, I woke up with a sore jaw (only on one side), a white painful bump on the other side of my tongue, a sore cheek (like when you bite it really hard and it gets that painful crease) sore gums (only on bottom) and a white painful bump on my lip. Today the other side of my jaw has started to hurt, and my throat has been sore as well. Does anybody have any information? I've been brushing my teeth regularly, rinsing with mouth wash, and that hasn't helped.

5609044 tn?1383514943 If you think it might be strep throat, go to the hospital. Strep throat can harm your baby so you'll need meds for it. But if you think its just something small , then drink tea and suck on halls.
Avatar m tn sore throat,went to Urgent Care and was diagnosed with strep (without a culure) and given antibiotics. The sore throat did not respond within the 2-3 days, but subsided after 5 days.
Avatar m tn I had a swollen spleen, neck pain, fatigue, white mucus covering my tonsils, swollen tonsils and ear pain, but I tested negative for mono and positive for strep throat. I had antibiotics to treat the strep throat but my throat still hurts like crazy. Do you know which disease I could have then?
Avatar m tn The strep group B can be found as a sore throat or a normal vaginal flora (except when you are pregnant it can cause problems for the baby) and sterile body sites or wounds. Strep group B may or may not cause a sore throat. If it does it isn't serious but sometimes they treat you for it because of the pain. I'm sorry I don't understand which two drugs you are talking about taking? I see you are going to take ciprofloxacin and which of the others on this list?
Avatar f tn Several friends said they got sore throat early on, I was just curious if that was a common thing.
Avatar f tn My 15 month old has a sore throat that is so bad he refuses to eat or drink. We took him to the doctor and he checked his ears and throat so fast that the total time spent with us was 5 minutes tops. As he was walking out the door he says he is calling in a script for an antibiotic for ear infection. In my confusion and crying child in arm I should have said stop and take time to thoroughly check my child but did not.
