throat

Avatar n tn The last two times that I gave him oral sex I broke out in the most painful blisters on my tonsils. I went to the Dr. because I thought that I had strep throat and the test came back as just a virus, however, I don't know what virus.
Avatar f tn So just found out i have strep throat and am only 10 weeks and 3 days pregnant. They gave me amoxicillin for ten days scared it wld hurt baby but if the doctor recommended then it has to b safe right. ?
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 Anyone had strep throat while preg. I think I might have it and I'm going to call the Dr. I'll have to call my OB as I don't have a primary. I was wondering if anyone had been in the same boat though and what the Dr. did or perscribed.
Avatar n tn Okay - I've seen this question asked a million places and a million different ways but none of the answers were the same and none of the questions were very much like my situation so I figured I'd give it a try (sorry if you've seen this a ton of times before!). My boyfriend is in the military and the last two times I've gone to visit him on base I have performed unprotected oral sex and gotten strep throat.
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 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?
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?
290018 tn?1240365868 strep throat are there white or yellow spot on the back on his throat and is is eyes red a he looks pale could be a possibility
Avatar n tn 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.That is rare but it does happen. Go to the doc. A simple exam and maybe a throat swab should reveal the cause of your sore throat. Good luck, hope you feel better.
Avatar f tn What you are describing sounds more like strep throat. Do you have a fever? Strep throat can be quite painful when swallowing and cause a general feeling of malaise, with whitish "dots" appearing in the back of your throat. If left untreated, strep throat can lead to other more serious complications. You should seek medical attention.
Avatar m tn In fact, my son once got a staph infection in his throat that mimicked strep and thank God he was on antibiotics because they thought he had strep at first.

7678907 tn?1400809113 I'm almost 36 wks & last wk had strep throat AND a sinus infection on top of a not so easy pregnancy, worst wk ever! I would suggest that on top of prenatals that you get some good probiotics from a health food store. Acidophilus is what I'm taking.
Avatar f tn I've had strep throat like symptoms, but it's not strep throat. I've had 4 different doctors do 4 different swabs, one of which when to the CDC, they all came back clean. I've been to an ear nose and throat doctor who scoped me and saw nothing. An allergist who prescribed me antiviral meds (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 1000mg), steroids to help with swelling and other medications to previously try. Needless to say, they haven't worked.
Avatar f tn I had strep throat about 4 weeks ago. After taking antibiotics, I was okay. Immediately after I came down with a cold of some sort, My throat was constantly dry, and now I always have this sticky phlegm at the back of my throat? What could this be? Post nasal drip?
Avatar n tn I know strep and allergies are definitely two different things, but it could be that if he has an allergy issue, his nasal passages and throat get irritated from that and then an infection occurs - the strep throat. This past winter I, myself, got strep throat twice and pneumonia once - the first bout of strep actually landed me in the hospital for 4 days.
Avatar f tn I believe it is you may be leading up to a sinus infection. I have started with a sore throat a few times and had signs of strep. But I wait to get treated the pain isn't there anymore and then I find out I have a sinus infection and strep. You may should get your tonsils out if you get strep to often. My brother had to have his out. Just to be safe get to a doctor. May god bless you.
Avatar n tn I am now on antibiotics for strep throat and it seems to not be work, which I had a throat culture with positive for strep. My oral infection is getting worse. I was tested for HIV at 6 1/2 weeks after risky sex, and it was negative. Why is my oral infection, which I believe to be thrush not responding to treatment and strep not responding to antibiotics? How reliable is my negative test result on HIV test? I am still not feeling well at times.
Avatar f tn OK, now I understand your concern: you're asking whether, if your partner also has strep in her mouth and throat, she could infect you by oral sex. The answer is no, for two reasons: penile strep infections are extremely rare, if they occur at all; and second, you are 100% protected from a new strep infection while taking amoxicillin. So no worries at all.
Avatar m tn I have read on many other posts that is possible to get herpes (hsv2) of the throat (with no mouth sores but rare).. and some other websites say its not possible.. I trust the experts on this site so I am assuming that it is possible.. Does anyone know if a primary throat herpes breakout clears up within 5 days of symptoms appearing only to return 3/4 days later as bad as ever? 2 doctors told me I had strep.. second one tested for strep came back positive..
Avatar n tn Consider your drinking water a source. We were on well water and were informed that the constant strep throat infection my kids had could be coming from the water they were drinking. Strep can be passed through water. Ever since we have been on bottled water we have been in the clear.

1310633 tn?1430224091 I have strep, they kiss me, the virus is now on their lips, they kiss my wife and pass it along to her) Sorry is this is a fundamentally stupid question... it's just never come up before, as neither my wife nor I have ever had strep-throat.
