Strep throat and rash

Common Questions and Answers about Strep throat and rash


Avatar m tn I’m late answering this but i was diagnosed with strep even though i suspected mono but the doctor put me on amoxicillin anyways. I had taken seven days of amoxicillin feeling the sickest i had ever felt but developed no rash so the doctor didn’t worry. After 7 days of being on amoxicillin my throat finally felt better and i did not feel sick anymore. I went to sleep that night and woke up at 5am itching and had developed a full body rash over night.
Avatar n tn Ive never heard of Vitamin B12 deficiency causing those symptoms. You need a mono test, and a strep test due to the rash and sore throat, also a throat culture to test for different bacterias (Strep A and Strep B). The rapid strep tests they do in the clinic only test for one type of strep. Also, even though rare anymore, you should ask them about possible scarlet fever. You need a new CBC done, it is possible that the WBC has went up since the last test.
Avatar n tn So I have a rash on my forearms and calfs and i have pains in my knees and elbows which makes it hard to move sometimes and i just had a sore throat which my doctor said it was tonsilitis. Does anyone know what is wrong with me as far as the other stuff? oh and i had a fever and my white blood count was a little higher than normal.
Avatar n tn I have had it for 2 weeks now, I got strep throat but I had the rash before I got the sore throat. The doctor says its viral rash could last 4-6 weeks just curious if anyone has had this too??
Avatar f tn I went to my doc but he didnt even look at my mouth :( he didn't take me seriously at all just spoke about the baby and that's it. I had strep once and it burned my throat so i kind of thought it was my tonsils but not i hear of advanced strep ugh I'm def going for a second opinion tm.... and can u still have advanced strep w out fever?
Avatar n tn I took her to urgent care where it was determined that it was a strep rash. They also swabbed for strep and the test came out positive. Now my son has had the same thing happen: ear infection and then rash. Does this truly sound like a strep rash, or could this be a reaction to the Amoxicilin?
Avatar f tn Maybe you should be tested for hand, foot, and mouth. This can cause sore throat and also peeling of skin on hands and feet. You should return to your dr. as he or she may need to give you another round of antibiotics for the strep. Hope you get well soon.
Avatar f tn So there is a spectrum of diseases that can manifest itself with joint pain, sore throat, and a rash (hives). These things include rheumatologic diseases , infection, and autoimmune diseases. Just given the brief history that you gave, I cannot tell you one is more likely that the other. By far the most common disease state associated with these symptoms is in fact the common cold. If you think that this is something certain items need to be emphasized: 1. Duration of symptoms 2.
Avatar n tn Hello, Due to the suddenness of appearance of rash along with no prior history of any rash,it can be due to a viral infection or an allergic reaction.Scarlet fever(strep infection with a rash) and other viral infections and allergic reaction due to contact dermatitis have to be ruled out.Apply calamine lotion on the rash and consult a pediatrician soon.Treatment for all is different and before prescribing any medicine in children ,it is important to confirm a diagnosis first. Hope it helps.
Avatar m tn Doctor thinks she has strep so he took a strep test. Doctor said strep was highly contagious and asked if our 3 kids and myself got it. But nope only my wife. Questions: 1. After readying the above what do you think my risks are for STD's? 2. If my wife does have strep throat is it possible that me and our 3 kids will not catch strep? We shared drinks on Saturday night,wife already starting having sore throat. Doc told her its highly contagious. 3.
995985 tn?1250046379 STREP THROAT!!! My son has had strep throat and it was absolutely nothing like this and I refuse to give him medication for something he does not have. The bumps are not itcy and not pusy or oozy they are just tiny little red bumps. Does anyone have any ideas on what this could be? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
Avatar f tn Been off lamotrigine for 2 days but rash is getting worse. Now it feels like burning and pins and needles. My lips and inside my mouth feel fat and scratched up. any ideas. The nurse practioner isnt inspiring confidence. Couple of people have said to go to the ER but , no offense, I.hate hospitals and not a fan of doctors. just wondering what to look for in Terms of when to go to ER. Or just give it more time to get out of my system. I also take buspar and temazapam.
Avatar m tn I went to the emergency room and was told when the doctor looked at my throat that it was strep. He didnt do a test though. I had a fever and sore throat and that was it but it took me 20 days to get rid of it. I had to take two different antibiotics. Could that at all be mistaken for not being caused by hiv. My whole throat was torn up and it went down into the esophagus and it was hard to drink. I was just wondering if an hiv caused sore throat does the same thing as a strep sore throat.
Avatar m tn Severe and sudden sore throat without coughing, sneezing, or other cold symptoms. Pain or difficulty with swallowing. Fever over 101�F (38.3�C). Lower fevers may point to a viral infection and not strep. Swollen lymph nodes in the neck. White or yellow spots or coating on the throat and tonsils . Bright red throat or dark red spots on the roof of the mouth at the back near the throat. As you can see they are the same as ARS.
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 My daughter had scarlet fever (she's 6) a few weeks ago. She had the strep bumps in her throat and the rash on her chest so it could be that. She also has a penicillin allergy and the way we found that is when the gave her an antibiotic for pneumonia a few yrs ago she took the meds for about 4-5 days and she broke out in huge bumps and red, itchy on the tops of her legs and abdominal area. Some on the back. I would take her to an allergist to check.
Avatar f tn Hey there, I'm a 20 year old female concerned about catching something after having a man (of unknown status) ejaculate in my mouth twice. Five days after, I woke up with a swollen/sore throat and red, sunburn-like rash covering my groin, buttocks, breasts & surrounding area, but it didn't itch and I no fever. I had slept with a tampon in, and was concerned about TSS, but had no other symptoms.
Avatar n tn Is It possible to have a few symptoms of strep throat and still mean that you have full-blown strep throat? From my personal diagnosis, I believe that I have a mild case of strep throat. I had a sore throat for a few days but it seems to have died down now. Throat is still red at the moment. There's phlegm and I have difficulty swallowing (feels as though there's a lump at the back of the throat) Lymph nodes seem to be a little sore but not swollen.
Avatar m tn s and it is a small one. I never had regular strep throat (caused by Strep. pyogenes) I had one caused by another strep and it knocked me on my butt. I had a 103 fever and I could barely drive to get to the doctor. For you they should have seen the white patches on your throat or done an ASO test. I don't understand the doctors these days. What are they teaching them? It is more infectious than contagious. Sort of like mono is transmitted. Wow, so your sons kidneys were damaged by strep?
Avatar f tn It appears as a white splotchy rash and in bad cases the spots can bleed. The antibiotics and steroids would only further or possibly begin it's development. I have too take steroids daily for Adrenal Insufficiency and get these on occasion. Sometimes I can get rid of them by eating lots of yogurt, otherwise I have to get a prescription for a lozenge troche that contains an antifungal.
Avatar f tn Didnt swab my my throat just looked and said strep. So my question is was it mono or strep because the amoxi did take the swelling down and remove the white spots and i know antibiotics don't cure viruses.
Avatar m tn Thanks for your response and help. When I saw the white patches I freaked and thought thrush as well because I can be a bit of a hypochondriac, but the patches were only on my tonsils, which my mom and the doctor she called said is a sign of strep. My mom tells me and I'm beginning to believe that I might of had some sort of flu virus as well as sinus infection that became strep throat over time.
Avatar m tn t go away (I noticed because the pain was still there after I stopped taking anti-inflammatories), I got a rapid swab test and got diagnosed with Strep throat. I got 10 days of penicillin and the pain went away after 5 days. However, on the fourth day of penicillin I started to notice that my ring fingers and middle fingers were starting to feel dry and scaly. Eventually, small white bubbles formed on my fingers skin and eventually erupted (no pain, no itch) and my fingers started peeling.
Avatar m tn I forgot to mention DID have a fever (and my glans penis became slightly redder) and the doctor diagnosed me with both Strep throat and Mono, but strep throat goes away in 3 to 7 days without treatment, and probably even more quickly with treatment. I KNOW FOR A FACT I had strep throat AND a virus. Thanks to my negative mono test, my anxiety soared and I began to think it was HIV.
Avatar f tn A year ago went to Asian massage parkour and also rub and tug handjob only a few days after noticed a rash on head of penis and random slight stinging a few weeks later throat started to get red and sore and post nasal drip started still dealing with these issues been tested for all stds strep throat urethra swabbed multiple times 1 time came back with slight yeast infection next swab was no infection seen family doctor 2 urologists and 1 ENT still no answers
Avatar f tn We got medicine for his strep and then just gave him oatmeal baths and used non scented lotion. It got really bad and the entire top layer of his skin ended up peeling off. It was not fun. Just a suggestion, hope I could help.
