Sore throat infection or virus

Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat infection or virus


Avatar f tn My symptoms are sore throat, sever neck pain and cough.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Most cases of sore throat can indeed be due to a viral infection, such as part of flu or colds. With rest and plenty of fluids, this usually subsides within a week. Recurrent sore throat, on the other hand, can be due to allergic reaction, irritation, smoking or from infectious mononucleosisis. Infectious mononucleosis or kissing disease, is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). It presents with fever, sore throat and fatigue.Check with your doctor for proper evaluation.
Avatar m tn I have never got this sick but for the last few days I have had sore throat, headache, runny nose and back pain(inhale). Tonight I was too sick to walk so I took the cab home and I start to have chill and sweat and have chest pain. My whole body was shaking and I sat in my bathtub fill with hot water and it still won't go away. Anyone know what this is and how to deal with it? Honestly I don't have the energy to go to the doctors right now.
Avatar n tn t usually cause swollen lymph glands; they are usually a sign of infection or virus. STDs are usually not the cause either. But it's best to get checked out by a doc to determine what your body's trying to fight off.
Avatar f tn But the bacteria may have been resistant to the antibiotic or you may have just had a virus plus had a slight bacterial infection and that is gone now but you still are fighting the virus (which shows up as the red throat with the vein look and bumpy). Do you have a fever? I don't think you have pharyngotonsillitis or anything too serious. It is just a virus. If you have a high fever such as 102 or higher I would revisit the doctor. Otherwise, it will go away.

Avatar m tn I just read an old post from DR HHH he said oral std very hard to get and gonorrhea will clear itself up in throat but rally hard to get. I think I got a run of the mill virus or allergies. Thanks for your interest.
Avatar f tn I started feeling tingling on my penis/balls and thighs and in my mouth/toungue/lips about 2 days later. By Thursday or Friday July 28th, I had a sore throat. The throat is very red and mostly on my soft pallets and throat. I went to an immediate care on Saturday July 29th who did a strep test (rapid and long) both were negative. I told them I was scared of possible STDs they did urine tests (dirty and clean) both were negative. But prophylaxis treatment of 1g azithromycin and.
Avatar m tn 1. could the sore throat (1 month for now) be a symptom of HIV? 2. How long does a sore throat last if someone is infected by HIV? 3. Do the cuts increase the risk of having HIV specially from Oral sex? 4. Are the tests i have taken assuring/conclusive? what do they tell you? 5. i am planning to take a test after three months from possible exposure (for my peace of mind)...which test should i take? Combo, ELISA, PCR, etc...
Avatar m tn I am a heterosexual male, and I performed oral on a female that I had just met at a bar (one night stand).
Avatar m tn If the sore throat is from a virus, there are several at home "remedies" you can try - they won't "cure" the virus that is causing the sore throat, but will make the throat feel better so you're not so miserable - hot tea with honey or lemon (or both), gargling with warm salt water, popsicles. Stick with easy to swallow foods such as applesauce, scrambled eggs, jello - avoid spicy or highly acidic foods.
Avatar m tn How common is this?
Avatar n tn I have had a persistent sore throat for the past two months and was prescribed an antibiotic a few weeks ago. The antibiotic corrected the sore throat and nasal pressure, so I assumed it is a sinus infection. My test results for strains of step came in negative and the doctor recommended I cease taking my antibiotic (5 days in out of 10) so I did. It has now come back and I expect it to stay if untreated (as the past two months have shown).
Avatar n tn It could be an STD perhaps GC. But it could also be a strep throat or a virus. Do you have a fever or any pus in your throat (white bumps or patches near the tonsils or the back of your throat)? If do you it could be a strep throat. IF no fever and no pus but just a red throat it maybe a virus. It should pass in a couple of days if it is a virus. If it dosen't get better then see a doctor and be honest about the oral sex.
Avatar f tn I understand that infections are rarely passed through oral sex but my question basically stems from the fact that I have been quite ill the last 4 days. It started a day or two after the sex worker but it feels just like a flu or cold. My throat has been sore, I have had a fever, aches and pains, a headache and fatique and mild coughing. The symptoms don't really sound like an oral std and I was wondering if it's just a coincidence?
Avatar n tn yesterday i had a fever, body aches and chills. No running nose or sore throat. I woke up feeling fine but later became feverish with body aches and still feverish but no sore throat. Is this the beginnning of the flu or just a cold?
Avatar m tn another month went on then an ulcer came up in my mouth and the sore throat came,the same night the tingles in my feet started then by the time i went to sleep it was up 2 my knees,but always stops wen i sleep although wen i wake i feel abit achey and has know spead to my hands...ivce had diarrah for 5to 6 days and 1 white smalll spot in my mouth,sneezzing a little ...went to hospital the doc gave my penicillan v potassium 250mgs said use 4 a day...
Avatar f tn My partner has never had any symptoms of herpes (oral or genital) and has not so much as had a cold sore. My throat is so sore and very hard to swallow and the white spots are still clustered in one small area, with nothing elsewhere on penis or lips or mouth. The doctor I saw two days ago suggested it could be the cold sore virus (herpes) as canker sores unlikely as they would be randomly spread not clustered. He prescribed 200mg tablets of aciclovir five times a day for 5 days.
Avatar m tn I m having ear pain and sore throat and also have sore mouth, my tounge, upper area of mouth and also hav pain behind the ears...been like this for a week now. I m worried as I had a pap smear wich came back with hpv and ascus and I also hav large fibroids wich I m getting treatment for. My great worry now is that is this sore throat related to hpv as hpv can also cause head and neck cancer. I will be glad if someone can help me on it.
Avatar f tn Often if a person has symptoms of a primary out break there is fever and body aches caused by the bodies immune system mounting a defense to this new infection, then a sore develops and most often at point on contract. If this is a recurrent outbreak, often there is tingling which are called prodrome symptoms where the virus is attemping to enter the nerve and travel to the surface. These are not written in stone and to vary from person to person.
Avatar m tn One week after the encounter, I developed a sore throat with white spots on the back of my throat and tonsils. I ran a slight fever, and my throat became swollen for the next couple of days. I seen two different doctors during this viral infection and both called it a case of pharyngitis and I was given some steroids to help with the inflammation. The infection completely cleared in one week. My question is if I could have contracted oral herpes from the girl?
