Avatar f tn I have been sick for the past four days now and nothing I am doing is helping me get better! I have some type of nasal infection (stuffy/runny nose, headache/preasure, sneezing and slight sore throat.) I've tried drinking lots of fluids, soup, vitamin c and taking Tylenol reg. Strength for fever. I'm 36 weeks and I don't feel like feeling like complete crap my last few weeks of pregnancy. Please someone help! What can I take??
Avatar n tn Your persistent symptoms of sore throat, ear pain and lymph node swelling could be due to a throat infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. 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.

Avatar m tn I went to my PCP who said it was a sinus infection but this sore throat happened the day after oral so I think it's from that. He insists it's not & gave me some medicine for the sinus infection. I have been taking the medicine (Flonase) for a month now but still have a sore throat on and off. He never swabbed my throat either. What could this be? The sore throat is there one day and the next day it's gone. The back of my throat is really red and looks swollen.

For the cough (dry) antitussives like Dextromethorphan based syrups like Triaminic may help.

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with a hyperthyroid about three weeks ago. Endo prescribed Methimazole 15 mg day (10mg in the morning and 5 mg at dinner) which i've been taking for 6 days. The last 3 days i've had sore throat at night only and today i have the sore throat all day. I called the dr. and she doesn't think its from the medicine since I have no fever or rash. But i'm concerend because my throat is very sore and i also noticed a small white spot on my tonsil.
Avatar f tn Gargle with warm salt water 3 times a day until the sore throat stops. The sodium kills infection and you probably will gag but it does help. Also, heat up some water, squeeze a lemon into the water and add some honey, that will help with the discomfort.
Avatar m tn This is a symptom I have never experienced. The inside of my throat is not sore at all like it generally would be with large amounts of drainage. It is just the outside. Also I have had a severe headache for over a week just on the left side of my head that is not helped by migraine medicine or regular headache medicine. Does anyone have any idea what can cause this? I would like to have an idea of what might be going on before I make another appointment.

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 Hello, What was your exposure?
Avatar f tn Tylenol is 100% safe to take when you're pregnant! But it would be best to go see a doctor... if it is a throat or ear infection, you will need to take antibiotics to make it go away or the infection may get worse and can be harmful to the baby!
