Strep throat and pink eye

Common Questions and Answers about Strep throat and pink eye


Avatar f tn The same germ that causes strep causes pink eye. I have had strep throat develop into pink eye several times. Since you just saw your doctor, and he probably prescribed you antibiotics, you should call the office and explain that you have pink eye. The doctor will probably just call in another prescription for you for the antibiotic eye drops.
Avatar f tn Hello, On Sept 27, I went to a walk-in clinic after 3 days of a horrible sore throat, no voice, and some congestion. A swab confirmed strep throat and I was put on 10 days of amoxicillin. I went back 2 days later, and was diagnosed with pink eye, possible ruptured ear drum, ear infection and sinus infection. Gave me drops for the pink eye, and kept me on the amoxicillin. They told me if my ear didn't clear up in a couple of days to see an ENT.
Avatar m tn My history has always been protected 100% up untill this scenario with a random man Begam with itchy pink eye, grity feeling on 1 eye only. 5 days with the pink eye and as of Yesterday swollen tonsils with white puss both sides painful to swallow.

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with strep throat and pink eye in both eyes yesterday. It started then. The Dr said there was no inf in either ear. I also have upper resp inf and sinus inf. Was given an injection on antibiotic and cortisone inj for the strep.
Avatar f tn The congestion continues to today. Now 7 days after the initial symptoms of my sore throat I have pink eye in one eye that has a thick discharge. With three ailments, would it be a good idea to ask for an antiviral from the doctor? Or should I just continue to ride it out?
539780 tn?1213943976 I had acute bronchidis, for the next two weeks I had walking pnemonia, then I had strep throat. Now Im much better, but I woke up this morning and my eye is pink, and kind of sore. Can it be Pink Eye? And if so.. what are some home remedies I can take since I really have no more money for another Doctors visit because of this past month?
Avatar f tn It started as a cold, I ended up with Pink eye. I thought I was getting better but the left side of my throat is very sore. I can get through the day as long as I am sipping something hot but by bed time it hurts to swollow and to talk. Tylenol will help so I can get to sleep but it is still uncomfortable. My question is how to know if I should go see the dr. I do not take antibiotics unless it is absolutely needed. I have to many allergies to antibiotics.

Avatar m tn I am a young male and recently had a bout of sore throat and pink eye. I didn't really feel any genital problems associated with this, but have had the sore throat and pink eye for a week now. I went to the doctor and he gave me antibiotics for the strep throat and drops for the pink eye and now (a week later) both are starting to go away for the most part. However, I have been feeling a slight..hard to tell if it is my imagination...
Avatar f tn Okay so yesterday I woke up with a crusted eye lid, and my eye turned out to be bright pink. It also seemed to burn throughout the day. This would be thought to be pink eye right...Okay but I just recently had strep and the flu and I'm on antibiotics...So how would I get pink eye??? Help!
Avatar n tn About two weeks ago, I started developing the traditional pink eye symptoms of redness, itchy, drainage, crusty, etc. I went to the doctor, and was told, yes, it was pink eye. He gave me some antibiotic drops, and sent me on my way. Two days later I was back in his office, with my eye swollen almost shut, my eyeball redder than I've ever seen, and what looked like a blister on the outer corner of my eyeball.
Avatar f tn I work at a preschool and one of my students recently got what seemed to be pink eye but it turned out to be strep showing through her eye.. is this what I have?
404541 tn?1201722841 I still have my tonsils and they were both swollen with a lot of white spots. I went to the ER and they did a strep culture which came back negative for strep. I thought I would just need to rest and see if it would clear up on its own. When it didn't clear up I went to my regular doctor. She prescribed Augmentin, which I wound up with the generic for that. I also had gotten pink eye. My stuffy nose had subsided.
Avatar n tn You need to see a General Practioner to look at your throat and eye. You probably need a rapid test for a Strep Throat. If so you need antiobitoics.
Avatar n tn I had a root canal done on Tues. and got terrible diarrhea and vomiting Wed. afternoon followed by a bright pink rash from my neck down my torso. Are any of these related or from either the local anesthesia or the Advil? I took 2 Advil at 8:30am and 3 at 3:30pm and never had a bad reaction in the past. There is a stomach virus going around, could it be that? Could I have hives as an allergic reaction to the novocaine?
528849 tn?1212712557 there is no redness or swelling or bumps or anything. its just sore and pink. what could this be? im freaking out because ive never had anything like this happen to me brfore. could it just be strep?
Avatar n tn I have not been sick with anything since about May, when I experienced a case of pink eye and before that I was sick with a bug in January and strep throat in November. What could be the cause of these apparent lymph nodes? Is it serious, I am extremely nervous? Please help, thanks!
Avatar m tn My six year old daughter has had a rash since september, two weeks after I noticed it, she had a sore throat and was diagnosed and treated for strep. The Dr. said when the rash was still there weeks later that it could be strep related and it would run its course and to keep him posted. Now wants to refer to dermatologist for possible allergies. I am wondering if my instincts are right and that it is not allergies but caused by strep virus.
Avatar f tn Hello, I went swimming a early june and few days after that my ears started to hurt real bad and it gave me terrible headaches coming and going. Then I developed strep throat week later, got rid of it. I been putting Similasan earache releif it helped a little. And now its september 2, my ears don't hurt as bad but I think I lost some of my hearing, I can't hear like I use to. Now I'm having a problem with my left eye and left nostril watering.

Avatar f tn The most common symptoms of either form of meningitis include fever, severe and persistent headache. stiff and painful neck, vomiting, eye sensitivity and eye pain from bright lights and muscle aches and weakness, and strange feelings (such as tingling) or weakness throughout the body. Diagnosis is by spinal or CSF tap and examination of CSF. Lyme’s disease is an emerging infectious disease caused by Borrelia and is the most common tick-borne disease.

Avatar f tn Monday morning I went into the doctors the next morning and received a rapid strep throat test and shortly after came back positive for strep. Shortly, this put me at ease I was put on amoxicillin (500mg does 3x a day for 7 days). I routinely followed my prescription and by day 7 my tonsil swelling went down completely the puss pockets left and the white layer which lightly covered my tongue with pink dots had faded.
Avatar n tn She needs bifocals. She had no problem seeing print until last Saturday. She was diagnosed with strep throat two days before that. My question is could the strep throat have brought on sudden accomodative insufficiency? She was able to see clearly before the strep.
Avatar f tn I stopped the antibiotics and it seems like I got rid of the strep throat, though I still have a cough. I started treating my yeast infection naturally since I have been unemployed for several months now and have no medical insurance-NO MONEY LEFT!!! I must've not washed my hands well after I douched and I touched my right eye yesterday evening. I felt a slight burning sting at the moment I touched it and later last night developed a migraine with pain over the right eye.
