Sore throat and lymph nodes

Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat and lymph nodes


Avatar m tn For another, if you have a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes, you MUST try to see a doctor. Try to keep your mind open, and don't try to diagnose yourself. Only a doctor can diagnose and treat an illness. Lots of juice, clear liquids, and try to avoid caffeine and sugary things. Vitamin C is important. But try to see a doctor, rather than ask the internet to diagnose you. The internet isn't nearly as reliable as a real doctor.
Avatar m tn One appeared 2 weeks after the sore throat ended and the skin was kind of hard but it went down after a week or so, 3 weeks later, same thing happened with a lymph node in the other side of my neck (still the back). They both went down in a week but I can still feel them - they're kind of rubbery very movable (i can literally move them around with 2 fingers), no itchyness, you can only see it if I extend my neck to the side.
Avatar f tn I have had a sore throat, the feeling of soemthing down my throat and some pain in neck. I am wondering why this is. It scares me as much today as it did back then. After having the one removed 10 years ago I am less inclined to want anything removed. i just want to make sure nothing suspicious was going on. I have had a few ENT look at it as well.
Avatar m tn the infecting source causing enlargement of lymph nodes. Lymph node enlargement is usually due to infections like bacterial and viral. The source of infection for you appears to be your throat. Treatment is usually with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications. So, consult your primary care physician for proper clinical assessment. Regards.
Avatar f tn i have a sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, diarreah, tight feeling stomach. i am a 26 year old female. would might this be?
Avatar m tn I have read mixed things about them and am confused. I have heard that lymph nodes also swell when you have colds, sore throats, ear infections etc. I currently have a cold not sure if it's just a cold or hiv symptom but I have probably 2 little pea or bean sized lymph nodes that can be felt on one side of my neck which is also the side where the throat is sore. They don't look overly swollen/enlarged.
Avatar m tn From 3 months ago i started having a swollen lymph node in my neck. The swollen lymph node was also accompanied by extreme fatigue, sore throat and a low grade fever. i was put on antibiotics which did help the symptoms to go away but it never healed the swollen lymph node. From the very same time i started having a general discomfort feeling in my inner tights and under my scrotum. Its not really painful its just feels the skin has become sensitive.
Avatar m tn stomach virus/fever in december, sore throat/fever in feb., sore throat/fever in march, and today low fever w/scratchy throat. she seems otherwise healthy but i always think the worst. is this common w/kindergarden age kids? can fevers be that common? any insight would be great. thanks.
Avatar n tn One day after the procedure I acquired high temperature with muscle, joint pains and sore throat. I could not feel the sore throat but the doctor who examined me told me that I have a sore throat. After 4-5 days I developed a coated tounge, pink rash on my right cheek which had an area of a quarter coin and the other rash was on the back of my right shoulder and was bright red in color and stretched the length of a dollar bill.
Avatar f tn At about the 12th day of antibiotics, I had a sore throat - still have it 10 days later and I was put back on antibiotics... and now lymph nodes are enlarged. Since prostatitis is a bacterial infection, is it a possibility that the sore throat and lymph nodes are related to prostatitis?
Avatar m tn By the way, how is the girl feeling, maybe she is not well either with a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes??
Avatar f tn 6 that lasted for like 2 days. And also my lymph nodes on my neck felt like swollen a little bit,and im alll fine now , but the thing is , i also felt my left armpit lymph node for two days .
Avatar m tn ive tested negative for hiv at 15 weeks post exposure. My girlfriend has had swollen lymph nodes lately. I have been told it's not hiv. Does anyone know how big lymph nodes get and does it matter where they are located?
Avatar m tn In my twins, allergies do make them have runny noses, sore throats, and sore lymph nodes. The lymph nodes will be sore and swollen during an infection, it is what they are there for. They help you fight infection. Have a doctor check your throat to see if you need antibiotics, he can check your lymph nodes at the same time.
Avatar f tn i am on week 13 of tx and I am going on my 6th week of having a sore throat and can not get rid of it. I took antibiotics for 7 days and didnt help at all. My Lymph Nodes located behind the ears and my throat are so enlarged that they are very sore. My nose is congested and is constantly bleeding. Is anyone having this problem? and is their any releif? Thank you for helping.
Avatar m tn ( and I just got a cold and swollen lymph nodes but I also just got a negative test at 6weeks so it made me think either the cold and lymph nodes aren't anything to do with Hiv OR it could be but the test could be wrong so that's why I was asking about delayed seroconversion and reliability of the test at that time (though the dr at the place said that was the time to do the test, so it must be?
Avatar m tn i know i have a viral vnfection of some sort as the swollen lymph nodes and sore throat 2gether with antibiotics not working show this, and the body usually sorts out trivial virial infestions in a week or so..dont u see a concern?
Avatar m tn After 2 months I developed another lymph nodes in my neck and had a sore throat, fatigue and loss of breath. I then took an hiv antibody test at 3 months 6 days came negative. But lately I have black blister-like sores on my toes and have been experiencing fatigue and a sore throat. Does it sound like I have hiv? Should I test again at 6 months because my doctor told me to?
Avatar n tn The reason I am asking is because within a few days of having protected sexual intercourse and cunningulus, I started having painful lymph nodes, sore throat, and a small fever. Is that to soon to cause HIV symptoms? My other question is, it has been 20 days since my encounter, is there a test at this point that I can take or is it to soon?
Avatar m tn It happens to be the very same side as the lymph node and the cold sore. I am not sure if I had them before or not, but I just noticed (or just paid attention) to them. Here is a picture (throat pic, beware): The I read again that such bumps are a sign of throat cancer and now am I even worried. Can you please take a look and advise as I will barely be able to sleep because I am now really anxious.
Avatar n tn My tonsils are slightly enlarged and have always been but some of the days while my lypmh nodes have been swollen this year I have slightly reddened and sore lymph nodes even while on antibiotics. I am not sure what to do I have felt exhausted daily since this lymph node swelling started and have decreased appetite the last few days-one week due to the general sick feeling. I have also seen an ENT for this.
Avatar f tn the next day I just randomly checked under my arms and there were lymph nodes under both. My neck was swollen without a sore throat and I could feel the muscles in my neck, but no lymph nodes. About 4-5 days later I got body achesit lasted about a day then came back about 3 days later. My neck is still tender and swollen a little over a week later. I still feel slight burning sensation under my arms every now and then during the day. It doesnt hurt when I touch them.
Avatar m tn 3) Start of week 5, sore neck, but no evident enlarged lymph nodes. Neck is however sore on sides and front around clavicle bones. Neck is not sore under chin or on backside). Is this cause from lymph nodes? 4) NO Fever, NO diarrhea or sickness. 5) I did catch genital warts, which started developing week 2...could this be a cause for the symptoms?
Avatar n tn It sounds like you maybe experiencing drainage issues because of the scratchy sore throat issue. Its pretty normal for your lymph nodes to swell there to fight off localized infections - cough, sore throat, etc. Take some over the counter medication. But this type of illness is fairly common this time of year and from the description of your illness and your lymph node swelling - this seems quite normal. If you do not get any better, see a doctor. Hope you feel better!
