Sore throat and mucus

Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat and mucus


Avatar m tn I started having a sore throat about a week plus one day ago. It wasn't all that bad, just sore to swallow. I went home for the weekend hoping that my parents care would heal me up over the weekend, but we tried multiple things and the sore throat wouldn't go away. It only kept getting worse.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am 10 weeks today and have a horrible sore throat. It's red and inflamed but no white spots indicating strep. I think it's from post nasal drip, I am also choking up phlegm mostly clear and light yellow. I used the netti pot twice today so far and it's helped my nose but not throat. Also tried a shot of apple cider vinegar and failed spectacularly at getting it down. I do not want to take over the counter medicine but I know you ladies will have more natural ideas.
Avatar n tn Can I take Tylenol cold and flu? I have a sore throat, and would normally ask my doctor however it is midnight and they are closed. Some advise would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn For the past two months I've been having a sore throat and both my nose and ears are congested. Been to my ENT about 3 times nobody sees an infection in my throat or my ears. Recently I went to my medical doctor for a check up she said my ears look a little cloudy gave me antibiotics the anibtotics aren't doing anything. Also been taking allergy and sinus medicine it isn't helping either.
Avatar f tn So, I have had a sore throat for a week now. It started with a tickling throat and then developed, so I find it very hard to swallow because it really hurts, and also have trouble talking. Yesterday I started coughing and it has gotten really bad, to the point where I am coughing until I'm gagging. However, the unusual thing is it only seriously affects me in the mornings and at night. During the day it is bearable. Please help!!
Avatar m tn I have been having that sore throat for the past 6 months. my symptoms are as follow. feel like there's something in the back of my throat like a little tiny rock going up and down but when i am trying to spit it out it will not come out.also, i have been very stressed out lately and i always eat late before i go to bed. Recently a lot of mucus has been running in the back of my throat,especially when i am taking that natural remedy called bragg organic apple cider vinegar.
Avatar n tn ve had something similar for more than 6 months now. Occasional dry cough, daily sore throat (slightly worse on one side), and mucus deep in throat (i.e. not post-nasal drip in origin). My ENT said the vocal chords were inflamed, and my GI doc responded by saying that ENT's always say that. Both of them are in any case perplexed. So am I. My chronic sore throat is accompanied by some additional gastro symptoms.
Avatar f tn All of that but also an antihistamine would be good many times our sore throat is from mucus running from oyr sinuses down our throat. Dr.
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!!!
1519309 tn?1290956580 Hello me, and my girlfriend have had a sore throat with mucus drainage for about 3 weeks now. Does anyone have any idea what may cause this? Allergy season is pretty much over up here, and she is on Claraitin anyways so we are not sure what it could be. Or a remedy for it.
Avatar n tn A couple days ago i started to get a sore throat but didnt think much of it..but now my throat is killing me on my left side when i swallow. My glands on my left side are swollen and hurt to the touch. And today i just noticed some reddish/white bumps in the far back of my throat and on the back of my tongue. Other then that i feel fine. I dont have a fever or a cold. I feel like i have a lot of mucus caught in the back of my throat whenever i swallow but thats about it.
Avatar m tn Or is it possibly caused by sinus problems or allergies or some other post nasal drip? And is it possible that mucus is the cause of my sore throat? I'm finding it very difficult to break this habit, but I guess that if i knew that it would stop my throat from feeling sore I would have a real reason to stop. Thanks in advance.
504569 tn?1210454440 got flu shot on Dec 4, 2013 been sick ever since, started feelling little under the weather, then coughing with crazy unheard amounts of green mucus came up with the cough, lasted for almost a month, then my throat so sore it was almost making me cry, sore throat and ear pain mostly on right side, the pain was feeling like it went from throat to jawbone and jawbone made teeth feel very sore, looked like strings of green pus in very back of throat, pus also in the folds of my tonsils on the side
Avatar n tn Sge put me on Flonase The sore throat went awar but was left with a persistent cough for a week . I would wake up and it was so hard to swallow because the Mucus in my throat was so sick. After the cough subside I started to have throat pain again when I wake up then it would proceed to get better during the day and then towards the end of the day it's uncomfortable to say the least . I have fibromyalgia so and am in grad school and working so fatigue is my middle name .
Avatar m tn I was advised to remove my tonsils and so it has been done. But still food bits get trapped in my throat. Mucus problem has not improved, although drinking is not a big problem now. I feel the food bits are being cumulated in the ducts connecting my throat and my ears. When I rub my ear lobes, sometimes there are white bits (as large as 1mm cube, but sometimes so small that almost invisible) coming out. It instantly feels better.
Avatar n tn My brother and mom had a sore throat for a while and it went away, a little over a month ago i caught it, too. It started out as a sore, internal pain on one side of my throat when i swallowed. That went away in a week or two, since then, it has been switching between being dry or having a lot of mucus (not creamy, green, or infected-looking mucus). I like exercising, but the dryness is causing me to have trouble breathing. The doctor told my brother that it was not mono and not strep.
Avatar n tn Hi im a 17 yr. old female who has a sore throat for about 2 weeks. No runny nose or anything but recently I've been having these coughs and just a little while ago I sneezed and I spat out some mucus with blood. Im really really worried and would like to know what is wrong.
Avatar n tn s just flecks of blood it could be that your sinuses are irritated and/or very dry, Blowing your nose too hard can rupture the tiny blood vessels in your nose, drips down your throat and it gets coughed up with the stagnant mucus in the morning. Try a humidifier in your bedroom if your climate is dry, or use Ocean Spray during the day, wait a few minutes then blow your nose gently. If you're coughing up more than a half cup of blood see your doctor asap.
Avatar m tn I have sore throat for around 6 months. I think it all started with some sort of allergy because I would only have it when I was at home, generally any dust would make it worse. I moved out and my throat stopped being so sore but its still bad.. I feel like it is very sensitive. I also feel like saliva/mucus is licking down the throat.. Sometimes it has a bad (sort of rotten..
Avatar n tn I have never had any kind of sex until 4 days ago. I drank a bit too much and met a girl, we didn't anything except I went down on her for a little bit. She said she was clean and everything but I'm still worried because now I hae a sore throat and a bit of a cold; it feels like post nasal drip. I could just be really paranoid, which I usally am but I was wondering if I could have anything. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I went to a stripbar and deepkissed a female for about 3to5 min while I was with her I sucked on her breast and had injested some breast milk ( not very much) I had no oral sex or vaginal sex with her. About a week later I had white puss all over my throat and it hurt. I went and got a rapid HIV test 22 days after my meeting with her, came back negitive. Also went to the docters and he gave me z-pack finished the antibotics did nothing for my throat.
Avatar f tn About 18 days after a percived possible exposure I developed a sore throat, it was low grade not sore to eat and just noticable that it was there rather than being painfull. It was there for around two days and had a white or clear mucus with it. It was only there for two days and had no other symptoms with it. 1) I was wondering if a sore throat by itself is consitent with ARS? 2) Should it also have a fever? 3) Would it only last two days? Shpuld it last longer?
Avatar f tn I am currently using salt water and hot water to soothe my throat, i will stop smoking cigarettes, and I will drink some tea and eat some raw garlic to try and kick any bacteria still in my system. Any idea of what this could be? Lingering sinus infection? Subtle strep throat? (I've never had strep throat).
Avatar m tn I had no white spots no yellow spots in my throat. Just extremely red and swollen in my throat. I had the sore throat and general malaise for a couple days. I thought I was getting better, but then nasal congestion came, stuffy nose, runny nose. Then came a really bad cough that would wake me up in the night. It would be a tickle that would trigger it. I had green thick sticky mucus. Then about a couple of days ago, I had that tickle cough, but like a coughing attack episode.
Avatar f tn I have a sore throat too. I drank 5 water bottles today and my throat is already feeling a little better. Stay really hydrated, it thins mucus and all the other good stuff.
Avatar n tn And now my nose is starting to be runny and there is a lot of mucus that is now draining into my throat making it feel worse, and really sore. Is there any way to get rid of it?
