Strep throat and fever

Common Questions and Answers about Strep throat and fever


Avatar f tn Hi everyone, recently I went to the doctor with a nasty sore throat that had started to get swollen and accumulate white spots. He tested me for strep and found that it was not that, and my lymph nodes are not swollen for it to be mono. He said it was a viral infection that should last about three to four days. Anyway, the next day, I performed oral sex on my boyfriend. The day after that, I realized the infection had gotten even worse (at least to me). Could this have exacerbated the problem?
Avatar n tn If they are infected you can also get that lump in your throat feeling. However, when I had tonsillitis I also felt really bad and had a fever. Strep is another possibility and one you dont want to ignore. Complications of strep can be dangerous. Also of people get fever and feel really sick with a strep inection but sometimes all you have is a chronic sore throat. If you let a strep infection go for a long time without treatment it can make you seriously ill and could even kill you.

Avatar f tn My brother tested positive for strep throat today and I've been around him..they're supposed yo induce on Monday. If I am to come down with strep will they still induce? How soon will strep affect me if I've caught it? And is there anything I can do meanwhile to help fight any bacteria I've already been exposed to?
1624191 tn?1299191803 Two months later I had a fever and sore throat. I went to my doctor back in Missouri and the tests said it was Strep throat. Is Strep a symptom of HIV? Or could a viral infection be mistaken for strep? Also would a blood test after two months from sex session show a reliable result whether it is HIV or not?
Avatar m tn If you only have a fever and pus and a sore throat then they can do a culture instead of the strep test.
Avatar m tn On Tuesday I had a sore throat and a fever or 104 degrees. I went to the doctor Wednesday and they tested for strep throat and flu, both were negative. He sent me home with antibiotics anyway as he was sure it was strep, but the doctor's office called me today saying the culture test came back negative. My sore throat is better now and really it just feels like a cold, but I have never had a cold with such a high fever. Is it possible that I have a STI that I should be tested for?
Avatar f tn Hi , today when I woke up my throat started hurting and it was like tickling my throat or something because it was making me cough. and it's kind of hard to swallow. do you know what I could possibly have ?
Avatar m tn I took her to another doctor who diagnoised her with a severre strep throat and flu. She was put on 500mg of amoxicillin 4 times a day for ten days and loratab so she can swallow. She has been on these for a little over 48 hours. She has been running a fever between 101-103 for the past five days. It will go down after taking tylenol, but jumps right back up........
Avatar m tn Hot air come from nose and irritation in throat but had no fever or anyother else.. i had disturb in my sleep and feel tiredness.. Please give any advice for this or can i consult any doctor.. please give answer me sir....
Avatar m tn So in the past week and a half I began to get what looked like strep in the back of my throat. Swollen tonsils and little white dots accompanied by of course a sore throat. Usually when this occurs it comes with a fever this time it didn't. I then started to notice bumps on the back of my tongue followed by about 2 days of my tongue slightly swelling. I found that abnormal for having strep throat but figured it might be just a different strain.
Avatar f tn How does strep throat in one person tranform to scarlet fever in a person who is a strep carrier?
Avatar f tn Do you have a high fever? If so you may have strep throat. The fever may be making your legs ache. You can have strep throat without a fever but usually you have a fever. Do you have any pus in your tonsil area or white spots? You get tested for strep throat by a doctor. I think CVS pharmacy has a clinic too (which is cheaper if you don't have insurance).
Avatar n tn Is it possible I have strep yet again, or does this sound more like just a cold?? Oh and no fever, I had a fever the other 2 times I had strep.
Avatar m tn I slept most of the day with a fever and my throat is sore. This continued overnight and into today. I currently have on and off fevers, a swollen kneck and a sore throat (with bumps on it). Is it common strep could come back like this? Or could this just be a virus? Is there any concern this is something more serious?
Avatar n tn Woke up the next morning. High Fever and worse sore throat. I though it was strep so went to the doctors got a throat swab done and came back negative for strep. Now Day three, Fever is gone but sore throat still there. What's going on?
Avatar m tn I am 14 weeks pregnant. I went to my GP on 12/18 with a 100 low fever and a sore throat. Had a strep test done and it was positive. Got prescribed amoxicillin which I started right away. I am very nauseous and throw up a lot because of the pregnancy. I took the antibiotics for 5 days but then stopped because they made me even more nauseous. Got my sore throat back on 12/25 but this time it hurts even more. I don't really have a fever (99.7).
6420950 tn?1381153164 If you do have a high fever, 102-103 and you have pain in the throat, hard to swallow and no other symptoms such as no viral symptoms (no cough, no sneezing, no runny nose) then you need to go get a throat culture. If it is group A strep they will give you antibiotics if not they may or may not give you antibiotics depending on the severity of the strep. Some strep infections (other than the classic group A strep throat) can be severe as well. But if no fever, I wouldn't worry at all.
Avatar f tn ve been sleeping with the windows open these past few days but I ended up looking in the mirror and I noticed 2 white bumps back there. I also feel really tired and my body feels sore. Is this strep possibly? Are there pregnancy safe home remedies I can try to cure it on my own?
Avatar f tn 21 weeks pregnant and i have strep throat but no fever, or atleast not yet. Wat to do..
Avatar n tn Nonprescription over the counter drugs of ibuprofen and paracetamol (acetaminophen) both help relieve throat pain and reduce fever. The symptoms of strep throat usually improve even without treatment in five days, but the patient is contagious for several weeks. Lack of treatment or incomplete treatment of strep throat can lead to various complications.Antibiotics like penicillin or cephalosporins (for penicillin-allergic patients.)can be used.
Avatar n tn about 4 days ago i came down with a bad fever, sore throat, swollen painful lymph nodes and sore/swollengums ... the nurse i saw said it was strep throat and put me on penicillin ... the fever has been coming and going for the past 3 days bringing with it extreme fatigue. today i feel like i have developed these bumps in my lower lip and after a bit of online looking up have convinced myself its the start of herpes ... can someone tell me if it's possible i've been misdiagnosed?
Avatar f tn Every illness with both sore throat and fever should be professionally evaluated. The concern is not STDs, but strep throat, mononucleosis, etc. But if no real fever, you can safely just sit tight and wait for it to clear up on its own -- but still see a doctor if sore throat lasts more than another week or so.
Avatar n tn My son is 18 months old, and was diagnosed with strep throat 50 hours ago. Fever has finally gone down but he has extremelly chapped lips (bloody) with blisters on the inside part of upper lip. Also small (pimple size) on upper right lip and another one a little bigger on the tip of his tongue. He also has very soar and bleeding gums. He wont let me even touch his mouth I can barely put vaseline on his lips. Can all this be related to the strep throat? What should I do?
