throat

Avatar m tn I phoned my doctor yesterday about possible tonsil stones and she called me in a prescription antiobiotic, Z-Pack. I have advised my doctor several times in the past that I cannot take a Z-Pack as I get hit hard with side effects. Is there any other antibiotic that I can take that would be more digistive friendly?
Avatar f tn I finished the steriods and the Leaquvin today. My throat is not as bad, but my chest and neck are terrible. It hurts to take a depth breath and I get really winded when I talk. I called my doc back and they don't seem to concerned. I am very concerned about this and don't feel good at all. What should I do now?
Avatar n tn One week later I woke up with a sore thoat and a headache. I went to the doctor and she gave me a shot of Rocefin and a Z-pack, but did not swab for strep. The next day I got a fever of 101.6 and it has persisted for 3 days only going down for short periods of time with extra strength tylenol. I went back to the doctor. They swabbed my throat and drew blood. I am negative for mononucleosis, the flu, and strep. My CBC was normal. He gave me Levaquin.

Avatar n tn Hi, I am a 35 year old make. I have had a bad sore throat for 8 days. It has gotten worse the past 2 days. It only hurts on one side. I haven't had any other symptoms other than some general fatigue. I did have a sexual encounter 4 days before the onset of the sore throat (gave oral sex). Any ideas what I could have? I went to the Dr. a few days ago and he said he didn't see anything wrong except for a red throat and that it was probably strep and gave a Z-pack.
Avatar f tn I've had a sore throat for over a week. I took a z-pack from my doctor and nothing seems to be making it go away. The pain has subsided a little bit, but my throat looks veiny with red bumps. I have 1 whitish/greenish looking thing on my tonsil? What could this mean? I don't feel sick otherwise and have never ran a fever? It's making me concerned that this won't go away!
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with step and put on a z-pack. My throat is swollen and sore, I can barely swallow. I have also noticed a large pus pocket right next to my uvula. It's been 3 days and I haven't gotten better at all. Is there anything else a doctor can give me to try and get the pus pocket and sore throat to go away?
Avatar m tn On the following saturday i started having severe sore throat and low grade fever. 99.5 and 100.1. and generalized malaise. On staurday I started taking Z-pack and on Monday I stated taking Augmentin 500mg every 12hrs. Just in case and because I still have the symptoms. My question is: Is it possible that my throat is sore because of the forcelly deep introduction of the hard penis? if so, why the fever? could it be a viral infection? if bacterial am I getting the right treatment?
Avatar n tn I was tested for strep after initial infection and it was negative and then I had a throat culture taken after a follow-up (after the coarse of the z-pack) and they came back clean too. I had a blood test taken for mono and that was negative too. I had an HIV oral test at four weeks and it was negative but this sore throat won't quit. My left tonsil is slightly more swollen and I have a swollen lymph node on that side. The throat is worse in the mornings.
Avatar n tn 3 weeks ago i was put on antibiotics I had a sore, blissterd throat The med did not work last week I was put on a z pack The med is complete and I am still sick however I now have a blood shot eye and swallowing is so miserable I cant stand it my tonsils are not swollen but they do have these sores not blisters sores what is wrong with me
Avatar f tn I went ot the Dr about 3 weeks ago due to a severe sore throat and low grade fever, he did a step test and it came back negative but due to the redness and the tenderness/swollen glands he gave me a Z-Pack of Antibiotics. Within 24 hrs the sore throat weakened and I was feeling much better. Then, the following day it came back and it has been back everyday since then for the last 3 weeks.
Avatar n tn ve been on a 5 day pack for 4 days now. I still have a sore throat and am tired, and feel this is tied to the Z Pack. I'm also feeling dizzy. I'm also thinking that the sore throat may be gonorrhea from what I've read as her penis was in my mouth? Again, no ejaculation. If so, with throat gonorrhea do u take meds? I've been pretty stressed about this and the anxiety is killing me.
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor on Thursday with a headache, sinus pain and drainage and bumps on the back of my throat. No fever. He put me on a Z-pack and Flonase. I went back today because I looked at my throat and saw white stuff down the side where my tonsils hide. That doctor said it's an Adenovirus and to continue the meds and gargle with salt water. He said the white stuff is not pus but is sinus drainage. I looked Adenovirus up and got scared!
849259 tn?1244637661 My doctor also prescribed me diflucan just in case the metro-gel causes a yeast infection. I am also on a z-pack for a sore throat. Should I wait until I am finished with all the antibiotics before taking the diflucan or should I take it right away since I feel one coming?

Avatar n tn I went to the doctor, and she put me on a z-pack. I finished the pack, along with taking albuterol for breathing sessions. I still have a cough, and went to a walk in today, and the doctor thought I might have bronchitis or pneumonia. I usually take prednisone for my breathing difficulties. Will this help with the possible broc/pne? She suggested 5 20mg. a day for 7 days. Has anyone had an experience like this? I am leaving on a cruise Sunday, and do not want to be sick.
Avatar f tn after being on the z-pack I started to feel better, but developed a sore throat. I have had the sore throat for about a week and a half, called the docs, she called in a script for augmentin- 875mg twice a day for 14 days. Now I have a huge white spot on one tonsil (which I know I have had in the past, it just hurts). This sinusitis is different from what I have had before- I feel it mostly in my nose and my upper teeth/gums are very sore.

Avatar f tn I've had a severe sore throat for about a week. My doctor prescribed me a Z-pack of pills, and it's made a little improvement. No fever, no cough, no body aches, not NOTHING! My throat is just red and it looks like I have red bumps all over the back of my throat. I developed a canker sore under my tongue (I don't know if that's incidental, I have been test for HSV and I'm negative). I don't know what this could be?!
Avatar m tn I went to the doctors last week and they tested for strep but it came back negative. They gave me a z-pack anyway. After completing it on Sunday it is now Saturday (week later) and I still have a sore throat. I also have the tonsil stones. I am getting worried it is something more. I don't have a history of throat problems but up until this year I have gotten a sore throat three times already. I am wondering if there is a steroid out there or something.
7732297 tn?1397446837 It will help you fall asleep when the coughing and sore throat keep you up but I took robitussin for my cough (dr recommended me take it) and ended up having to take a z-pak antibiotics to get rid of the sore throat and still trying to get over the cough
Avatar n tn I have had a sore throat for 3 weeks where it does not sting but is internal where when I drive and look left to right...the sore throat reminds me it is there 50 times a day. I went to the MD and was given a Z-pack antibiotic. Should I do anything else to resolve this? Should I test for HIV or anything else that the Z-Pack would not have resolved? Thanks so much.
Avatar f tn Sorry in advance but this will be a long post. Im 23 yrs old, f. Diagnosed of asthma since i was a child. I could have no asthma attack for months but when i do it is worse. Im not currently taking any maintenance before this started. Ive had an asthma flare up last month (March 2016) due to sore throat and cold. I've went to see my doctor and he prescribed me Symbicort, Albuterol neb and Z pack. Usually, this medicine combination would work for me but this time it doesn't.
Avatar n tn I have had strep throat three times since December. I have been on amoxicillon, Z pack, and finally a penicillin shot. But these cases of strep were different than I had experienced as a child. I didn't have a sore throat, no fever, I didn't really feel sick but my throat felt swollen and it was effecting my gag reflex. I never thought it was strep. My left tonsil is still swollen and sometimes it still bothers me, but I don't feel sick. What is going on?

Avatar f tn t tell her what happened but I said I had a sore throat and she looked in my throat and said that my throat was pretty red and she gave me a shot (for sinus I think) and put me on a Z pack. My throat seems to be feeling better and less sore but it is still red. I am not doing oral sex again for a long time because this has scared me so much. So my main questions are How likely is it that I have some sort of STD? I would say pharangeal gonorrhea is my main concern. But anything in general?
Avatar f tn Can someone please tell me my HIV exposure risks? I am so SCARED!! I'm a female and had protected vaginal sex twice. Four to five weeks after the first exposure, I came down with sinusitis. I was treated with a Z-Pack and felt better. About 30 hours after the second exposure, I'm achy and feel like I have a sore throat coming on. Also, I had a bout of bacteria vaginosis, that was really hard to clear up.
