Avatar f tn Strep throat is an infection, not an allergy. I have never heard of a cat giving a human a strep infection.

Avatar n tn Hi, With a prior history of an upper respiratory tract infection such as a strep throat, I suggest that you have this rash closely monitored. Have you taken any antibiotics for your strep throat ? Were you able to complete the course of your medications? Although rare, strep throat may cause scarlet fever as a complication.The rash of scarlet fever is usually associated with headache and a fever .The rash has a rough feel to it and may be reddish over the arms and legs.
Avatar f tn Could the urinary infection or penicillin affect the test and is ten weeks long enough to test accuratly?I know 12 weeks is the usual time but do you think 10 weeks was good enough.
Avatar f tn Hi, 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 m tn The antibodies somehow mistake the ganglia for the strep infection. If you think your child has strep or has been exposed.... get a Titer count test. This is how the Drs. tell if your child has strep and it shows the level of strep-antibodies in your child's system. Also, peanut butter may set off the OCD or exacerbate the effect of the strep reaction. Good luck finding a Dr. who believes in PANDAs but most Drs. worth anything have at least heard/read about it.
Avatar n tn with Sinus/allergy problems. He tested me for strep, it was positive, and gave me med for the strep throat. The conditions have gotten worse and now my ear has started to hurt. While blowing my nose i got a real sharp pain in my right ear and now a little brownish disharge is comming out of my ear and it is continuing to hurt. it feels like there is water or some sort of liquid in it and all noises are muffled and there is a mild pain in my ear.
Avatar n tn 1 week ago my throat became sore and upon waking up 6 days ago I could not swallow. I had a horrible throat infection with the back of my throat turning deep red and white. I have had a tonsilectomy 3 years ago due to a chronic strep problem and the pain I felt was almost as extreme as my post surgery pain. I went to the emergency room and was given a rapid strep test that came back negative. The doctor gave me 250MG of Cephalexin and 100W of Propoxyphene-N.
Avatar n tn I may be completely wrong and just have strep throat or the early stages of pneumonia (some of my friends have both of those, and I've been around them in the last few days), but I figured I would ask on here. I'm not sure what the typical time frame is for symptoms to appear, and I read that gonorrhea of the throat is typically asymptomatic.
Avatar n tn I had this once!! OMG there was seriously bruises all over my legs- didn't hurt but there was alot of them.. It was strep infection, it's a form of strep. Go to the doctors, you'll get blood work & thats how they find out if this is what you have. You'll take some anti-biotics & it will go away. Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn Im pretty sure i have a throat and or ear infection. Im completely against anti biotics there for am avoiding the doctor on this one lol. My question is, could me having an infection harm baby or am i ok to just relax and let my body fight it off?
Avatar f tn The symptoms described 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. For the cough (dry) antitussives with Dextromethorphan based syrups like Triaminic may help.
Avatar m tn This past June after years of no medical problems she began having severe pain in her legs, knees, arms, hands and back. Her rheumatologist thinks it was a viral infection. Her knees have been swollen ever since and she has arthritis in the left one. It is now almost January (7 months ) later and we are still dealing with this with NO answers. She is on Meloxicam daily to manage the pain. She will have a good two or three weeks then a bad few days then the cycle repeats itself.
Avatar m tn it's a Strep, not Staph, infection. I know that Amox. is used to treat strep infections... we'll see if it works. I'll get restested in a few weeks.
Avatar f tn I hope i will not get it back since i am done my antibiotics.If it was just a bacteria infection and it was not strep how could i get it and is it contagious because my kids are sick now with a sore throat?
Avatar f tn It was only about 2 1/2 months ago that I found out that I had strep b as well. In the past 7 months I have been on 15 different medications. This includes various types of cremes and antibiotics. I have even been on penicillin twice. I am 19 and definitely not pregnant, I am on birth control. I don't have many symptoms and since I got rid of the UTIs and yest infections all the irritation as gone away. The only issue I have is painful sex.
Avatar n tn m not sure that is what would of caused you to miscarry though. Strep b is a bacterial infection that can cause problems if left untreated when you deliver. I haven't heard it to cause any complications during the actual pregnancy but I could be wrong. What they do is when you go to deliever your baby they put antibiotics in your iv 4 hours before you give birth to prevent it going to the baby. As long as you get the antibiotics the chance of it passing is extremely slim.
Avatar m tn Post nasal drip as in sinusitis, salivary glands infection, pharyngitis or strep infection too are common causes. Certain dentures and artificial tooth or filling of dental cavities too give a metallic taste. Sjogren’s syndrome and copper or lead toxicity are other possibilities. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. A comprehensive investigation is required keeping all the points in mind. Hope this helps.

YES, SMOKING CAN CAUSE MOUTH DRYNESS AND BITTER TATSE. Take care!
Avatar f tn Sorry, somehow I was thinking that your daughter was a teenager. If she is an adult, of course you should not be checking with her doctor about anything, she should.
Avatar f tn As you have symptoms of pain on swallowing, the pain is more likely to 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.
