Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat and fever in adults

throat

Avatar m tn Do you have swollen lymph nodes in the neck and a high fever? If so you could have mono. Or just a high fever and pus in the throat, strep throat. Just kissing I wouldn't worry much about STD's. One thing could be Herpes type 1 cold sores not genital. Although, it is less likely if they don't have a cold sore but sometimes they can still shed virus without having one. But Herpes wouldn't be causing your sore throat.
Avatar f tn Very young children are at risk for a lot of serious infections and a fever is a sign that it could be something serious if it is a high fever and it persists. a fever in anyone that lasts a week needs to be looked at. Also, a fever with seizures. What doctors are looking for is meningitis, and blood and brain infections etc. Having a fever with a flu is a way to fight it off. Same with a strep throat. The problem with strep throat is not the fever it is that the Strep.

Avatar f tn Hello, recently I went to the doc. fearful b/c I'd performed oral sex on a guy for the first time & a few days later had white spots appear on my throat. I also had a slight sore throat, no fever, no headache, etc only a slight throat irritation. So i went to the doc. & was told I have tonsillitis & that it had nothing to do with my sexual activity & was prescribed Augmentin. However, the doc.
Avatar f tn But when I googled for the symptoms of the sore throat only some matched like dryness and itchiness. I had no pain in gulping of food but I had lost the taste for food for the entire two weeks. Then came the 4th week which followed a 3days course of medicines and that even mild cough seems to have gone away. Now I am in 5th week of my possible exposure. No or very little cough no fever and no sore throat as I visited the doctor again and she said that my throat has pretty much cleaned up.

Avatar f tn nothing hurt but its just odd and i need a possible answer. i had strep throat as a child and i read that it doesnt re occur in adults.
Avatar f tn ) Being exposed to cold air, or getting chilled, seems to be one triggering factor to set it in motion. I sleep in a warm room and use an humidifyer in the cold months which sometimes gets me through the winter without one of these. My doctor has no idea what's going on, and discounts the idea that getting chilled is a factor in triggering this scenario. She says it might be a recurring virus....ideas, anybody?
Avatar m tn I have had no symptoms of HSV1 orally or genitally since the encounter. However, today I have what I believe is Tonsillitis (cold like symptoms, fever, sore throat, white spots on tonsils, etc.) Is it possible that this is an HSV1 outbreak? Searching the internet it indicates tonsillitis is not very common in adults. However, it also seems rare for oral herpes to affect the throat so far after the potential exposure (as most websites indicate this only occurs in the initial outbreak).
Avatar f tn Polyps are very common and occur in 30-50% of adults. Not all polyps become cancerous. It takes many years for a polyp to become cancerous and polyps can be safely removed. The symptoms described 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 n tn 5 days after that episode, My lymph nodes swelled in the cervical area on my neck, as well as 5 days after that, my throat is sore. I have no fever, just swollen nodes in neck only, and a slight sore throat. Is it possible that this is ars, or beginning hiv, or is 5 days just too early? The man I was with for 5 minutes, is a married man, heterosexual, not a drug user. I do know he cheats on his wife, but I don't think he is extremely promiscuous.

Avatar n tn She started out with sore throat, fever, then the red bumps on the fingers and toes as well as throat and mouth. Lasted for about 5 days. 5-7 days after her bout with what her doctor described as FHAM, I (45yr old male) came down with body aches, pains, soar throat and fever for the first 24 hours. The sore throat is still present with the exact same looking throat as my 6 year old but WORSE !! I also have the red sores on the inside and tops of my fingers.

My doctor appointment is on the 19.
Avatar m tn I was extremely worried at the time that I may have become infected so I got an HIV test at the 6 month mark and was negative. I read that in young adults CMV can bring about mild fevers, sore throat night sweats etc. I was wondering the time period from infection to when you would see symptoms of primary CMV.
Avatar n tn t cause a fever and sore throat. You probably have a fever from the sore throat and it should pass within a few days. It's not HIV, so try to stop worrying about this because fear feeds anxiety, and you don't want to make your anxiety worse. Take care...
Avatar n tn I have read and please correct me if I am wrong that in generall when someone goes through ARS they will have more then one symptom if they have symptoms i.e. sore throat and fever, rash and fever or a combination of the three and obviously there are more out there.

Avatar n tn I just had the same thing and I took tynol extra strength, and stayed in bed that help me a lot it lasted like 3 days for me and yakey a hot shower.
Avatar m tn I think what scared me the most is that I read the majority of people do not get a cold sore at a primary outbreak and that they just get a sore throat, fever, and other similar symptoms. But, I am glad that you said that no one is completely asymptomatic. That is what I was searching for. Like you said "Most people get sick but write it off as something else". I just wanted to make sure that I was not one of those people.

Avatar n tn A week ago he had a throat culture taken and he has just been diagnosed with Staph Infection in the throat. In spite of being given a general antibiotic, his fever and sore throat has continued. I am concerned that this comes on top of a bad bout of hives (3 weeks ago)that covered his body. The hives seemed to go away after a few days of taking an antihistimine. Questions: 1. Could the hives be related to the staph infection? 2.
Avatar n tn few months back since december i have been suffering from frequent sore throat following fevers and flu almost in the start of every week continuing for 2 to 3 days with medicines like ibuprofen given to me...
Avatar n tn If your fever is high and you have pus in the throat or even without the pus but a fever of 101 F or higher and a sore throat you should see a doctor to see if you have Strep throat.
