Sore throat and z pack

Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat and z pack


Avatar f tn I also noticed some whiteness towards the back of my throat. They tested me for strep and results came back negative so I was prescribed a 5-day Z-Pack and sent on my way. Now that I have done some research, I am afraid that I might have Gonorrhea. I had unprotected oral sex a week ago and unprotected oral and vaginal sex a week before that with a different person. I have not felt any noticeable vaginal discomfort, but my throat looks similar to pictures of Gonorrhea I have found online.

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 slightly lymph node on that side. The throat is worse in the mornings.
Avatar f tn Also went to the docters and he gave me z-pack finished the antibotics did nothing for my throat. The doc gave me a throat swab for strep came back negitive. My throat is still filled with puss and my gland on my right side is a bit swollin I have had some stomach pain and have felt run down (this could be caused by stress?) I have bin very stressed out this past month.
Avatar n tn for a REALLY itchy throat and I was also congested. He gave me a prescription of Zithromax (Z-pack) and some anti-histamine for sneezing. The congestion went away after a week or so, but I still have a sore throat.
Avatar m tn She is also a smoker. I have throat sore the second day´╝îmy throat feels pretty salty and irritating; and I feel there are some sputum in the throat. Is this a symptom of any STDs? What are my chances of getting throat gonorrhea and syphilis? HIV possible?
504569 tn?1210458040 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 m tn When I swallow, it hurts in the throat, above and to the left and right of my adams apple, and sometime to my ears. No cold symptoms or stuffy nose, etc. Went back to doc, he gave me pack but urged me not to take it because i just cam off meds. he said no swollen glands in neck but red throat. 1. Does this sound like ars (bad sore throat for 5 days, fever, but no other symptoms? 2. My normal temp is about 97; therefore, is 98-99 a potential ars fever in my case? 3.
1939607 tn?1324292900 I had a lot of pain at the top of my palate, radiating into my nose, ears, and throat. I had a second round of antibiotics (Clarythromicin, Z-Pack) and the second one I was also given Magic Mouthwash (oral lidocane gargle). I was advised to use Flonase, and which I keep on hand but rarely use (OTC), and Claritin-D (ditto). Warning: Grossness ahead. The first night, I had a horrible "pull" on my palate, to bring the mucus down.
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 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.

967153 tn?1247504264 Every once in a while I feel a drip in the back of my throat. I was put on the z pack about 5 days ago and it doesnt seem to be helping.
Avatar n tn 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. But the Z-pack hasn't helped at all and in fact, my throat got worse the past two days.
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 m tn The strep came back negative and they put me on Z-Pack (which I took to finish) anyway. The throat culture came back negative a few days later, and they said that checks for any bacteria so I'm guessing that may or may not clear me of the bacterial STDs like Gonorrhea.
Avatar n tn It's interesting that the Z-Pack seemed to help for three days and then your throat flared again. I took Augmentin (similar antibiotics as Z-pack but a ten day course) for suspected sinusitis and earache (again probably from the reflux) and it seemed to help a little with the sinusitis but not as much with the sore throats and earaches. I'm not big of too many antibiotics, but if the sinusitis flares up again (or if I just get more frustrated with the rest of the stuff) I may try a Z-Pack.
Avatar n tn I had a sore throat and penile discharge on Monday and I was given 2 free samples of z-pak by my doctor (since I don't have prescript insurance). He told me to take 8 pills total. I assumed he meant over the course of a week. I was looking on this forum and saw the 1 X dose of 2g for a cure for chlamydia and gonorrhea. My question... I was aware of the 2g needed, but I took them as daily dosage (500mg, 250mg, 250mg, etc.
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 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 started 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 m tn Doc looks at my throat and says I got an infection. Gives me a z-pack. I just finished the back today and can say it has done very little against the pain. Right now the pain will keep me up all night untreated, im talking funny, and it still burns to swallow.. Noticed that my tonsils have these like craters on them, like wholes.. All day i just rest and have zero energy..
279234 tn?1363108849 I had a bad cold this past winter that turned into a nasty sinus infection that went on and on. Finally a Z-Pack prescription knocked it out. From what I understand, secondary bacterial infections from viruses or allergies are very common.
Avatar n tn No cough or stuffy nose but just a really bad sore throat. I just finished taking the Z-Pack last night and am starting to a feel a bit better however my throat is still somewhat scratchy. My question is that a few days ago, I believe my lip my have split due to the cold and actually developed into a bit of a sore. It was very sensitive to the touch however, it officially split about 2 days ago and is already nearly 100% healed as I have been actively putting vaseline on it.
Avatar m tn Have had hot sensation in my throat for 3months now, salty mucous too. Total discomfort in throat. No sore throat.. Pls what could be the cause.
Avatar f tn Next day I started coughing could hardly speak and runny nose, sneezing. At day 5 of not speaking, etc I went to the doctor and he gave me a Z-Pack which I finished. A few days went by and the sore throat subsided, I was left with post nasal drip, itchy throat, cough and a congestion for another week. Then everything subsided except the cough.
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 f tn But then I started having a sore throat maybe a week and a half after the cough started... And that was the sore throat from hell. It still hurts now too. No matter what I drank it hurt. I got azirhromycin from the doctor. And promethazine surup( not with codeine). When I first went to te dr, i just had the cough. And complained of a little sore throat and some runny nose but not much. On Monday I got the congestion and I've been blowing my nose like crazy!
Avatar n tn If you do get it, I know that a Z-pack is perfectly safe in pregnancy. (I've had pink eye and bronchitis so far this pregnancy so I've had my fill of Z-packs!) Also, my baby cousin went to a sitter where all the kids got strep and they took her to the doctor just to make sure she was ok. That doctor told my Aunt that kids can't generally get strep under the age of 2. It comes out in the from of a cold. I know doctors have differing opinions, but that is what she was told!
Avatar f tn On Tuesday I went to our doctor and I didn'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?
