Is this the usually pattern of strep throat. Why am I having so many problem with this? I have kept a sore throat for the last two months...at first I thought I had strep now but the white patches went away. I have been having allergy problems...

Avatar f tn Getting your son in to see a pediatric gastroenterologist is the best thing you can do for him . I don't feel he should be on Reglan (nasty medication) with bad side affects and should ONLY be prescribed to ADULTS. This and Prilosec are both used to treat GERD (acid reflux) which he doesn't appear to have, and why he would be on both I don't know! Probiotics help with digestion, and in moving the food along the intestine and colon, which doesn't appear to be happening.
Avatar n tn strep throat and herpes have nothing to do with each other. strep throat is a bacterial infection, herpes is a viral infection. 1 out of every 2-3 adults has hsv1 orally whether they get obvious cold sores or not to know it. About 1/3 of us contract hsv1 orally before we ever set foot into public school. It's THAT common. Your grandchild could've contracted hsv1 orally from any adult who takes care of her or even from sharing toys, pacifiers etc with other children she's around.
Avatar n tn I had strep throat about three weeks ago. This week two children in my class got strep throat and today I feel like I have it again. What is the likelihood that I would get it twice in a month?
Avatar n tn This isnt relivent to itching at all but im in need of help, My boyfriend fell ill on friday with a swollen throat on friday night he started vomiting and tis lasted pretty much all night, he left it a few day just thinking it was the flu but his throat is closeing up even more everyday and he is still vomiting, he has been to hospital 3 times this week and they keep palming him off with tablets that he cant take because his throat is that swollen, please help if you can
Avatar n tn Has she ever had amoxicillin before (I guess that she would if like other children she probably had ear infections)? Strep throat can also be treated with other medications and so I would just change medications. But, you should find out from your pediatrician what she/he wants to do. Best of luck.

1110718 tn?1258435594 My 6 year old daughter is on Abilify 10 mg right now for what they are calling a mood disorder for now. She is happy, nice, caring, and just great and then can just turn in a second to a very angry upset and self harming child sometimes. She also was put on Concerta 36mg and her rages got even worse to where she once almost jumped out of the car when driving down the freeway. Very scary.
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 f tn but i have also been vomiting on and off for the last week (frequently for 2 days, then no vomiting for 2 days, and then once today) and am constantly nauseated. but i have no fever. what might this be?
Avatar m tn Two years ago I got a sore throat half way through the summer but since I was working and therefore talking a lot (working with children and having to raise my voice) I figured that it was just soreness from that. It went away after 2 weeks but then came back as a very very slight soreness, something easily overlooked. But since I was working with children I wanted to make sure it wasn't something more serious.
Avatar m tn not really complaining about her throat hurting. we hate bringing our kids in for every little thing and/or getting put on antibiotics. any ideas?
Avatar f tn My son is 18, single and lives in a small town in Utah, far away from his parents. He has been vomiting for a week, has a persistant headache, has a sore throat with puss pockets on his tonsils. Last week he went to an urgent-care center because he does not have a regular doctor in the area he is in yet. They said he had an ear infection, gave him antibiotics and sent him home. His symptoms have continued, so he went to the ER yesterday.

Avatar m tn I'm a daycare provider and watch a number of children. 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.
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 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.
503418 tn?1231098736 One of my children never got a fever with strep. Would just feel tired and throat hurt. When you looked at throat you could see white blotches and then we knew for sure.
Avatar f tn I have had strep throat 4 times in the last 5 months. 2 and a half months ago I started getting arthritis with my 3rd case of strep. I had what looked like the beginning of a rash. My first strep I was given amox for 10days, 2nd was given penacillin for 10days, 3rd was given clyndamycin for 10days.
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?
1770029 tn?1325802355 However, one day after my last drink, I suffered from a severe sore throat and chest pains when I swallowed. It is now 2 days later (after it began) and the sore throat and chest pains are still here. I tested negative for strep..but the doctor said my throat looked red and inflamed. Has this ever happened to anyone from drinking alcohol? If so, how long does it take to go away?
Avatar n tn My daughter developed sensitive skin on her face since she had repeated problems with strep throat. The doctor treated her with amoxocillin until I insisted we do something different. Her last bout of strep in March of this year she didn'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.
