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 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 f tn My question... could I have given myself strep throat (or another kind of throat infection) by giving oral sex after vaginial intercourse. This in something I have hardly ever done (ie oral sex after intercourse) but now I have strep throat. I haven't gone to the doctor, just started amoxicillian I have here (four kids) and it has cleared up (also a rash on my face) in a few days. Is it a coincidence or do I need to avoid this act in the future.
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 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 n tn About a month ago my throat stated hurting and my arms and hands cramped up and it was so painfull. The doctors said I didn't have strep throat and they had no idea what was going on. Should I see a Neurologist? Does it have anything to do with the fact that Im always sick with tosilitis?
Avatar m tn Did not know if this was part of strep throat or not they say the rash with strep is on the neck and comes after your throat starts to hurt? It seems with her she got the rash first then the fever and sore throat. Just wondered what it was!
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 n tn t show much signs of sore throat or fever but it showed up in the form of serious facial rash, raised, non-filled, dry and very itchy and hot/inflamed. After positively testing her throat for strep her doctor put her on Clandemycin. She seems to be strep-free for 4 months. However, last week her facial rash returned but not as severe as before. She has the dry, bumpy, itchy skin on her face but with the heat/inflamation.

Avatar f tn I think it sounds like classic strep throat. Mono will give you a sore throat too but not usually pus because it is caused by a virus and strep is the type of bug that causes pus. Both will give you a high fever. The strep could be resistant to the antibiotic. I would continue the antibiotic and call your doctor to tell them it isn't better yet. It takes 24 hours to get results from a culture and 48 for a final result.
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 m tn I decided to go to a clinic where they could do a quick swab test and prescribe me meds for what I assumed to be strep throat. The test they ran came back negative, and the nurse practitioner said it was likely a viral infection. On Monday, I recorded a fever of around 100-101 and the swelling in my throat had gotten to the point where my tonsils were completely covered by exudate. Swallowing was painful and difficult. Started to experience a bit of fatigue/aching.
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 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 n tn 4 weeks after the exposure, I developed swollen throat glands and went to the doctor. I was diagnosed with strep throat and swollen tonsils, but my throat never hurt. My glands are now going down. Also, I developed a temporary rash on my stomach, which was not raised nor was it dark in color. It lasted about 45 minutes and then disappeared. A week later I experienced the same rash and it disappeared in 20 minutes, does this sound like the ARS rash? I would really appreciate some feedback.
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 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.
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 n tn I developed a cough later, and have recently had an itchy throat with sinus drainage. This morning I woke up and the rash had spread to my palms, the tops of my hands and my arms. The skin is smooth to the touch and isn't raised any higher no sores... just itchy red spots on my thighs, hands and lower arms. I went to the health center today and my doctor said the rash may be caused by strep throat, but I am concerned that this is not the case. What could be the problem?
Avatar m tn Over a month ago, four kids 2yrs and under developed a rash on their stomach, back and one had it on his arms. The rash looks like scratch marks. Because strep was going around quite a bit during the time and some family members had recently had it, I closed for the day and required each child to get a note from their doctor and asked them to get a strep test. Every child came back positive. Almost exactly a month later, 3 of the same children developed the rash again.
Avatar f tn I've had a rash in the back of my throat and I took a zpack and it went away then had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and the rash is back in my throat, and very raw.
744777 tn?1235089263 Does anyone know how long the cross reaction rash developed by using Amoxicillin while infected with Mono last? My 6 yr old daughter was diagnosed with strep throat and was given Amoxicillin..turns out it wasn't strep and in fact it was Mono. Now she has this horrible itchy rash covering her entire body. I would really like to find out how long it last.
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 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 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.
Avatar n tn She went to see her pediatrician three weeks ago with the latest episode of strep throat and was treated for two weeks with Augmentin. But I am wondering if she could have had strep a few months ago undetected and that led to the rash, joint pains etc. What are the diagnostic criteria for Rheumatic fever? What should I ask the pediatricin to evaluate? I did express my concern about Rheumatic fever at our last office visit and he assured me that is was rare.
