Strep infection gums

Common Questions and Answers about Strep infection gums


Avatar n tn It could be due to chaffing from nose blowing, it could be oral herpes, it could be canker sores, it could be a viral infection or any number of things. No, this isn't all part of strep throat. Give his doctor a call who saw him and did his throat swabbing for strep this week and discuss it with them. Also give him plenty of tylenol for comfort and if he won't take it orally, you can buy suppositories to give him rectally to help with pain relief.
Avatar n tn I recently went to the doctor and took a strep test and it came put negative but my doctore thought maybe the nurse took it wrong so he said it might be tonsilitis. He gave me a perscription and said if in a couple days it does not get better then to take the antibiotics which is imoxocilyn. So the next day i got a fever of 101.5 so we got the antibiotics.
Avatar f tn I was on vacation at the time, and as soon as i got back home, i went to my doctor and she swabbed for strep throat. turns out, it was. however, my swollen gums never went away and they were kind of receding (which makes me think that I also have gingivitis) I'm really wondering if all this has caused some form of blister to form on my lip. i've had a couple blisters since them, but never in the same place. and i still have the swollen gums.
Avatar m tn But I would check with your doctor on this and see if the Strep group B and Viridans strep were sensitive to Levoflaxacin. If they are it may be a suitable substitute. Why do you want to stop the Ciprofloxacin or switch? Do you have another problem you want to treat in addition to the urinary tract infection and prostate or is the cipro not working? Have you finished the course of antibiotics? Is it making you sick? Good luck.
Avatar n tn You could have something called herpes gingivostomatitis, which is inflammation of the gums from a new herpes infection. Your doctor should have done some tests. You need to follow up with her. I also had a sore throat for 5+ days last week, but I also had a stuffy head and a cough, so its tough to say if its just a virus for you. Your doctor should at least test you for strep.
Avatar n tn For about 6 months, I've had an incurable sore throat(at least with penicillin) with general malaise and fatigue; twice I had confirmation of strep group g (swabs and ASO titre). About 1 month ago my infection progressed into neurological symptoms (muscle numbness, weakness, soreness, extreme fatigue, disorientation, and of course, a sore throat). Interestingly, after a couple of courses of penicillin, my symptoms seemed to improve.
Avatar m tn How are you feeling now? Have the gums improved? Usually the mouth in particular isn't associated with strep throat.
Avatar n tn the sore throat was very painful and the gum bleeding was bad. come to find out it was a bacterial throat infection. the weirdest part was that i had strep many times over the years and it never caused the swelling in my gums and the bleeding. after the second or third dose or antibiotics, my gums were practically back to normal and of course my sore throat and the pus covering my tonsils started to clear.
Avatar f tn I had a pap smear done and the only thing they found was a mild yeast infection. I had unprotected sex with my 5 month boyfriend. After I went out and bought monistat 1 day, everything seemed fine I assumed it went away until I traveled out of the country and began to smell a fishy odor. My discharge also became, very watery and clear. When I got back to the country the iching was at level 8. The smell also seemed to go away as well, so I had sex again (same guy).
Avatar n tn I have had Strep Viridans almost 4 years ago after getting my widsom teeth removed with no pre-existing heart conditions. I have a healthy heart even now after having had the infection. I was diagnosed with subacute bacterial endocarditis. I have to premed now because I have had the infection when I go to the dentist. Now being pregnant my gums bleed a lot with just normal brushing.
Avatar n tn My throat is no longer as painful as it was originally, but it is still very painful and colored the same way. Also, the infection has spread to my gums and gums feel smooth to my tongue, are red, black, and white, and are also very painful. Also, two more canker sores have appeared in the last 48 hours. I have an appointment to see my PCM at the beginning of next week. Is there anyway you could shed some light on to what is happening in my mouth? P.S.
Avatar m tn It may be a bacterial infection although if its a localized infection would start the site and spread around the same area in the gums. It seems weird that its gone to the tongue so rapidly. If it weren't for the injury, I was leaning more towards possibly a viral infection such as herpes labialis (cold sores).
Avatar n tn If the spots were small and splotchy streaks and mixed with red streaks it could be a strep infection. As for the thrush--Sometimes when a person takes too many antibiotics (if the child has been on any) they can kill off the good bacteria in the mouth as well as the bad, thus causing the thrush infection to grow. The more antibiotics you take for thrush, the worse it gets. Antifungal medication such as nystatin is usually a good medication to take.
Avatar n tn It is not as bad as before when I could barely stand, but it is still there, and the fact that the pain is still there means I still have a fungal infection. Recently, my doctor said I have a candida infection, and gave me Diflucan (flucanozole) to take for 10 days. I just finished it and there was no apparent effect. Now, I'm not so sure it is a fungal infection. Urine and blood analyses done back in August showed no bacteria in the blood or urine. Could it still be a bacterial infection?
Avatar n tn Fever swelling tongue, gums, roof of mounth, fever 100-101.3, sore throat, canker sores on tongue, roof of mouth just returned from Europe 5 days ago. What could this be? Took a strep test at quick clinic/neg.
Avatar f tn He woke up yesterday morning with a swollen tongue, and was complaining about THAT hurting now. We thought he had strep throat. So I took him to the urgent care, yesterday. Strep throat was not the case, a the doctor diagnosed him with a "mouth and throat infection" (I dont understand this, it is so vague). He prescribed him antibiotics and vicodin. The vicodin is helping with the pain, and keeping his temperture down to 99-101. There are FOURTY antibiotics (2 a day, thats 20 days).
Avatar n tn Nothing shows up at all but this Doctor knows he is in pain and she says he must have a throat infection (not necessarily Strep but another bacteria that would cause the infection). She gives him Penicillin and Benzydamine (to gargle his mouth and throat with). Also, the first Doctor gave him Zovirax (an ointment to put on his blister on the lip). After using this ointment, the blister changed color. It is now black. It's probably healing.
Avatar n tn Last Friday (1/20) I came down with a horrible sore throat, a general feeling of malaise and a dull, achy and sore pain in my groin area. I went to the ER, and sure enough I had strep throat! I tested positive on the throat culture. Doctor gave me a shot of penicillin and cleared the strep right up. My concern is I still have this "dull achy" feeling in my groin area (as of 1/24). I recently started doing heavy weightlifting two weeks ago (heavy squats, deadlifts, bench press).
Avatar m tn unprotected oral sex WITHOUT ejaculation (I sometimes get canker soars in my mouth, or bleeding gums when i floss, those could be entry routes i think) Ive been getting rapid tests done REGULARILY as im so worried. i tested exactly one week after : NEGATIVE Three weeks after: NEGATIVE Four Weeks after: NEGATIVE I HATEEEEEEE how they say you have to wait three months. Im already a hypochaundriac as it is.
Avatar m tn I've also had a lot more infections since this starting happening. Ear infection, flu, tooth infection and my throat always seems a lil dry itchy. Also had soreness in my armpits. SPots on my arm that look like insect bites or something. Discoloration of the face that seems fine right now, but I had patches of my skin getting really light. I'm dark skinned so I could really see the discoloration. I've always had dry skin, but it was worse in 2008 right after this protected sex thing.
Avatar f tn I went to Urgent Clinic and they tested for Strep. No strep but he said I do have an infection...maybe beginning of ear or sinus. He said same as dentist that my immune system is down and easier to get something. Gave me antibiotics so hopefully it helps! I'll let you know... Thanks!
Avatar m tn I got tested for strep and mono and both were negative. Almost all of my symptoms have passed except for my sore throat, but now I am developing a large amount of canker sores... I have 4 on my lips, 4 on my gums and 2 on my tongue... my gums are swollen and my tonsils have many white spots on them... i still struggle through eating even ice cream and have lost about 10 pounds (which is not a good thing when you have very little to lose)...
Avatar m tn I'm confused about the symptoms of initial infection. The dictionary says there may be no symptoms or mouth ulcers, and the doctors of this site state that initial symptoms include swollen lymph nodes, fever, blisters, etc. I've read they may include headache, fatigue, and muscle ache. Can someone summarize the symptoms of initial infection as opposed to recurrent infections? In the past I tested negative for HSV 1 and 2.
242516 tn?1368227505 The flu has passed epidemic rates in much of the country, and if you don't have a cold, I'm sure you have a friend who has the sniffles, fever, chills, aches and pains of a viral upper respiratory infection. This is different from a bacterial infection such as sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia. A viral infection doesn't improve with antibiotics as these infections do. A virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread.
Avatar f tn October, November, and December, I got the infection in just my tooth holes, gums, and tongue. Negative for strep. No doctor could figure out what was wrong, so I was continually prescribed antibiotics. I went to my oral surgeon who removed my wisdom teeth, he really didn't believe me and took x-rays. He said everything looked fine. January and February I was infection free. Come March 2015, I once again had the infection, no strep.
Avatar n tn It is certainly possible that the strep infection could have affected your gums. You are or were probably on antibiotics so that should clear up the inflammation that is present. If the situation persists then a visit to your dentist would be in order.
Avatar f tn My basic question is, when trying to detect an osteomyelitis (bone infection) which is the better tool, an MRI or a bone scan? Or a cat scan? Would a bone scan work on the jaw area? But in addition to that question, I have a VERY complicated situation with this infection, so if anyone has any advice, please help - here is the shortest possible version of my whole story... I've had a very serious dental infection for 6 months.
Avatar n tn The symptoms described could be due to an 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 n tn I went for my routine cleaning at the dentist two days ago and expected a little soreness of my jaw and back gums around my wisdom teeth. However, the pain in my jaw is still present, and so bad that i can barely open my mouth halfway to eat, and when I swallow it feels like I have strep throat. The dentist did a lot of evaluating of my jaw bone during the appointment since i have minor TMJ disorder, but my TMJ disorder does not cause pain like I am experiencing now.
