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 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).

3054444 tn?1353976571 So I went to the doctor today to see if I have a sinus infection. I get them every year around this time and thought I had it. Turns out I have strep throat instead. I'm 38+3 and I hope my son waits until the antibiotics are in my system long enough so he doesn't catch it. Has anyone else gotten strep throat while pregnant?

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 n tn I would say got to the Dr and have them do a throat coulture. It sounds to me like strep throat or something else also.
Avatar f tn The only way to confirm that you have strep throat is by a throat culture (or rapid strep test) in your doctor's office. Even if you do, it's probably a good idea to continue using your CPAP, since having inflammation in your throat will worsen your sleep apnea. In most cases, what feels just like strep (pain, difficulty swallowing) is usually not due to the specific strain of strep that we test for (Group A beta-hemolytic). Many other conditions can give you the same symptoms.
9309926 tn?1405447056 t seen it after a strep throat. Sore throats can often be caused aby viruses and not strep. With a strep throat you usually get a high fever. Sometimes you can also get swollen lymph nodes under the neck. You don't always get pus (white spots on the tonsils or back of the throat) but you usually do. Strep throat can become serious so they do have to watch you. Sometimes it does go away on its own. I would definitely get the swab done.
Avatar f tn What is good for a strep throat i know there's many things us pregnant women can't drink i need something to help my strep if someone could please tell me remedies or medicine i can take . Im 32 weeks pregnant btw!
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.
533880 tn?1237612452 Since Thanksgiving I have had the flu three times and I have had step throat 2 times. I have never had the flu or strep before, in the last month and a half I have had strep twice. At first I thought I had the flu, constant high fevers, my body was swore, could not eat, no vomiting, but after one week with that I would get a sore throat and that is when I would notice the white patches in the back of my throat. Is this the usually pattern of strep throat.
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 f tn 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) for pain. As you are pregnant, do not take any OTC medications without consulting your doctor. You will need to consult your primary care physician for a strep test, which if positive you will be given antibiotics. In the meantime, take plenty of warm oral fluids and lots of rest.
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 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.
Avatar m tn My wife is 8 1/2 months pregnant and we just had the strep test done which came back possitive. Does anyone have any info about this. I was told that she might ne antibiotics during labor so baby does not contract it. Also, Could I get strep throat by giving her oral sex? I have had it 3 times in the last few months and think I have it again. Could I get Strep throat by doing that or is it a weird conincidence? THanks!
