Sore neck with strep throat

Common Questions and Answers about Sore neck with strep throat

sore

Avatar n tn Your persistent symptoms of sore throat, ear pain and lymph node swelling could be due to a throat 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 f tn I agree with Londres70, about having "strep" and not taking anything not making sense. If you had strep they would have given you something. If you didn't go to the doctor for it you would have because it is so painful you can't stand it. The rest is the same as her post and my last couple. Let us know how it goes.
Avatar m tn looking for advise, my son is 9+yrs and has had a stiff neck since oct/nov last year. suddenly 2mo's ago he got really swollen glands with sore throat and bad chest infection with wheezing asthma, followed by high fever ard 5days later. it affected his liver too for e next 2months_swollen and palpable, with upset stomach and pain below the ribs. the doc suspected EBV, so he was told no sports for 2mo's. a test showed that it was an old ebv infection, but not active.

Avatar n tn Can sore throat with mono later on lead to dry cough? When the sore throat was resolved, I had cough that persisted for three weeks and then resolved itself.I have had numerous sore throats in the past that uasually ends up with the cough. The cough then persists for averagely two weeks and resolves itself.
Avatar m tn 5) My only concern about the strep diagnosis is that sore throat came on end of second day, can strep start without sore throat and slight sore throat be possibly to antibiotics already taking effect. Notes: These were the most several muscle pains in my live with super high fever shakes and chill. No Rash or other symptoms.
Avatar f tn 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. If you develop a fever, or if there is enlargement of the tonsils with pain or if there is white coating on the tonsils, you will need to consult your primary care physician for a strep test, which if positive you will be given antibiotics. Regards.
Avatar m tn Your sed rate or (ESR) can be high with any cause of inflammation such as Rheumatoid arthritis, anemia, lupus, pregnancy, etc. Do you have a sore throat? Have you had your throat checked for a strep infection? You could also perhaps have mono if you had a sore throat, swollen glands and high fever, fatigue etc. A lot of things will cause high ESR and swollen glands. What other symptoms do you have?
Avatar m tn like the feeling you get before you get a sore throat. it kind of also feels like its partially closed like there is alot of mucus or something lineing my throat. i dont know if it could be an STD or not. my boyfriend said he had not sexual disease or anything that he was healthy and i am too i have to sexual diseases. please help me!!!

Avatar n tn The glands on each side of my neck are sore. My throat feels like it is closing and I have drainage down the back of my throat. What do believe the problem is?
Avatar m tn My friend has a sore throat and neck pains on the ( right said ) of her neck she cant move her neck up or down or said to said . she went to the DR and they really didn't do much for her when it hurts her she takes pain meds and it go away until they were off what could it be ???
Avatar f tn //www.webmd.com/cold-and-flu/sore-throat-cold-strep-throat-tonsillitis#1. I also agree that certain antibiotics treat certain things and not all give good coverage over all bacteria. And strep is notoriously resistant. They now use higher doses of things and antibiotics have additive agents to help them stay potent in killing the bacteria. So, if you took the full course and are still sick, follow back up with your doctor for the next step. Knock this out hopefully soon!
Avatar f tn So im getting worried as im on week three of a sore throat that started with a neck rash that might have just been poison oak and not related but also had a coated white tongue , i went to the doc and he said it looked a little sore and saw one of my tonsils was swollen, he gave me penicillin in which im on day 7 with no real change... Im tired irritable and headache dont know if thats from meds or just anxiety....
Avatar f tn Monday I got a severe burning sore throat with no other symptoms. Tuesday sore throat was worse I could barely swallow. Went to MD and had a strep throat test- negative. Also swollen lymph nodes in neck and slight fever 101. No other cold or flu symptoms. I can only swallow ice water or ice chips. After 3 days I now have a blistery rash on my hands also. Could this be mono or something else- should I see Dr again?
Avatar n tn I gave oral sex to my boyfriend 5 days ago (Monday night), I woke up the next day (Tuesday morning) with a sore throat. My throat has gotten progressively worse and my tonsils are now swollen and exhibiting white pus spots, and my throat is extremely painful and red. My glands on my neck are also very swollen and I have had a fever for the last day and a half. Is it possible that these symptoms are a result of the oral sex, or just a coincidence?
Avatar m tn Over the weekend I developed a very bad sore throat with swollen lymph nodes in my neck. No fever (highest temperature I had was 99.0 F). Only symptoms I had were a very bad sore throat with swollen lymph nodes. I suspected strep throat. I went to an urgent care clinic on Monday and rapid strep test was negative. I was prescribed Penicillin and a throat culture was sent to a lab for testing. Literally within 12-24 hours after taking the antibiotic, my throat cleared up!
Avatar f tn If he had a strep infection and still has a sore throat, then your child's physician should order an ASO titer and find out whether or not the antibiotics completely killed his previous strep infection. If not, he needs to get on a new antibiotic ASAP.

Avatar m tn Hello. I started too recently see someone new and we have been having sex. I gave her a lot of oral sex and the next day I woke up with really sore throat. It's now been 3 days and my throat is still really sore. I looked into my mouse using a light and there is white spots all over my inflamed tonsils. Could I catch strep throat from oral sex soo fast? And will I need antibiotics. I am worried she might have had a yeast infection though it didn't look like it down there at the time.
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 m tn Two days later I woke up with a sore throat and bright green mucus going down the back of my throat. The next day I went to the University health center where I tested negative for the rapid strep test. I went ahead and got the GC done as well just to be safe. The strep culture ended up coming back positive with strep group G and negative in the GC. I asked about my tonsils (which didnt seem to concern the doctor) had miniscule white streaks which I was told was just mucus caught in them.
Avatar m tn When I tough it my full back area of tongue fills with pain. Its like sore yet hurts all the time.
Avatar f tn she has a very, very bad sore throat, extreme headache and neck ache, dizziness, nausea, a rash covers almost her whole body. The worst symptom is 2 golf ball sized lumps at the point where her neck and spine meet. She had one of these lumps about a month ago on the front right side of her neck. She said it just went away.When they took the throat culture, it came back the next day. Now, she has this.
Avatar n tn I have had it for 2 weeks now, I got strep throat but I had the rash before I got the sore throat. The doctor says its viral rash could last 4-6 weeks just curious if anyone has had this too??
Avatar f tn Sounds like you might have strep throat / throat infection. I had one recently, also started on the one side, was so sore that my gland swelled up and my ear was killing me. Made an appointment to see doc immediately as I could feel it wasn't going to miraculously get better. Doc put me on antibiotics and within a few days it felt so much better.
