Avatar n tn He gave me an antibiotic, Mucinex and Zantax and Tums for possible Acid reflux. 4 days later, sore throat is slightly bearable but the cough increased with white transparent sticky phlegm and is worse then I lie down. It is keeping me awake at nights. Unfortunately my doctor is away for a week so I cannot consult with him. During the whole episode I never had fever. But ever changing state of sinus condition. Sometimes it is dry and passages are open. Sometimes it closes up.

Avatar m tn Also haven't had much of an appetite at all.. I think I'd be lucky to say I've eaten 1 good sized meal each of the last two days.
Avatar n 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. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Avatar f tn Then my voice became rough and then I developed a sore throat. So I took some drinking medication for the cold-flu and coughs, to cure my throat. It didn't work. Well after a day or two of completing the medicine, I got dry nose condition. Everytime I breathe, I feel my nasal passage getting dry which is a very uncomfortable feeling. I felt the inside of my nose and noticed there were dried mucus. Now I got a sore throat and a dry nose.
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 m tn Slight headaches, cough, sore throat and TONS of phlegm. i seem to be getting way better, But this morning i woke up and started coughing up phlegm, I noticed as i spit a small amount of phlegm out i saw some blood. Is this anything i should be concerned about. Or is this pretty much normal? This discussion is related to <a href=''>coughing up blood in morning</a>.
Avatar f tn ve begun medication, my throat has not been as sore, and my phlegm is more yellow and less thick, but I still have the other symptoms mentioned above (stuffed ears, lump in throat, and tight jaw). The doctor told me to keep using the nasal spray and Mucinex for three months, and then come back in for a check-up, but I am worried that I have not been diagnosed properly. There are many medical articles that demonstrate a link between HPV in the throat and throat cancer.
Avatar f tn Recently i fell sick where i had a fever of about 38.5 Celsius and a sore throat. I've also had a lot of phlegm. The phlegm had was slightly brownish and i think it was blood. Also, usually (it's happened to me before) when i fall sick and there's phlegm build-up, the phlegm always stays with me for about 1-2 weeks or even longer. Should i see a doctor about this?
Avatar n tn After that, I woke up with a Cough and Ear Ache in the middle of the night. That morning I woke up with a sore throat and a popped ear (same ear). The sore throat lasted a few days, the popped ear was gone within 2. Its been 9 days now, and I feel much better. I have had a lot less cough. I still dont feel 100% . I feel like i have a lump in my throat, making swallowing a struggle. When I clear my throat, I cough up normal light green/white phlegm.
Avatar m tn I have been suffering from prolong sore throat since last 1.5 years.My throat has become red.Also i have morning phlegm. What can be the cause? Please help.
Avatar f tn When it itches I have to cough a lot to try and relieve the itchiness. What can I do? This is very sore and irritating.I cough a lot of phlegm up.
Avatar f tn Always have it first thing in the morning and usually I have a mild sore throat when waking which is relieved quickly when phlegm has been expelled. The phlegm colour ranges from clear to green to these days being brown. A good lot of the time it is hardened. Have had blood spots in it in the past but seldom. I generally feel well, just tired. Don't often get colds. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
Avatar m tn About a week ago I woke up with a sore throat and ear ache. I gargled with salt water and took pain killers for a couple days until it all went away. Now I have developed a cough which always seems to produce phlegm and in the morning, when I wake up, my chest feels kind of heavy and it's harder to breathe but after a hard cough some phlegm comes up and it's fine for the rest of the day.
Avatar f tn Young and healthy. My symptoms are sore throat, total body and muscle aches, and overall lethargic. Also, I can hardly turn my head. Very sore. And lot's of coughing. First night cold sweats. HEre is my question. Today when I coughed up phlegm there was blood in it. Not liquid like blood. It was red but had the texture of phlegm or gelatin. Should I be concerned? I called the on call doctor and they wee no help at all. Is this a symptom of H1N1?
Avatar m tn I take tylenols to ease away my headache. I also had some dark green phlegm that I spit out when I wake up and sore throat too. I asked a doctor about it and she told me to take ambroxol (mucolytic) and some loratadine. She told me that I may be having some allergy attack. I finished taking the dosage and I felt a little better but I still have the same symptoms. Here are what I'm feeling the past week, I hope someone will take time to explain to me what possibly I have.
