throat

Avatar f tn Symptoms of strep throat include throat pain, difficulty swallowing, red and swollen tonsils, swollen/tender lymph glands in the neck, fever, and fatigue. However, these set of symptoms may also be observed in a viral infection or some other kind of illness. To confirm if this is due to streptococcus bacteria, throat swab or culture and direct physical examination may be done. If this is due to a viral infection, it usually resolves after a few days.
Avatar f tn I have strep throat I am on an antibiotic what else can I use to help soothe my throat from hurting
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Aside from the throat culture and strep test, was there an imaging study done? While sore throat may recur and may be caused by viral or bacterial organisms, the pain in the upper back and neck area may need to be checked also to rule out musculoskeletal issues. If your present medications are not helping, check with your doctor for proper management. Imaging studies may also be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I been on antibiotics for the last six days. I'm taking amoxicillin 875mg right now. I feel okay when I'm on them. A little pain in my throat still, but when I went almost a day without taking them (today) I started to feel sick. Also, is bone weakness and pain in the body part of strep throat?
Avatar m tn Hello! My right tonsil is swollen wi white patches, but there is no pain or fever. Any ideas what this may be. Being that there is no pain I ruled out tonsilitis and strep, but I'm no doctor so I could be wrong. I was also considering oral thrush, but it's just localized on my tonsil. Could this just be plaque build up or is this in fact something worse?
Avatar f tn My doctors thought it was strep throat and they gave me some meds that made me get red bumps all over. They then swabbed my throat and realized it was monno, and gave me the right meds. I'm going to the emergency room tommorow I think. Any help is appreciated.

Avatar n tn I just got over the flu of ten days. I now have burning in the back of my throat, or anterior of the neck. Is this strep throat? I've checked my throat and its not red, and I have no fever. what could it be?
Avatar m tn So recently I have been having throat pain, and i took a look in the mirror with a flash light. I noticed I have yellow stuff in the back on my throat that wont move( tried with a q-tip). My tonsils are also swollen and inflamed, they also have the yellow stuff on it, that stuff wipes off though. The yellow stuff looks like mucous to me. I also have pain in my ears, head, and stomach. What could this be a sign of?
Avatar f tn The symptoms described could be due to a throat infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. 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) or ibuprofen for pain.
Avatar n tn Your medical history as well as family history are important considerations. Sore throat caused by strep usually resolves with medical management. If it persists, it is best that you go for follow-up with your attending physician for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I recommend you see your Dr about this. It may be your tonsils or strep throat. It's really hard to say but your Dr should be able to find out what's going on.
Avatar m tn Seen my doctor and he put me on Amoxicillin. My strep cleared up for the most part (the white crap all over my throat). Throat is still sore and have ulcers in a few places around my mouth. Not to worried about that, what does worry me is now my gums are killing me. I cannot even tough them with a brush. No blood as of yet from them. Is this the last of the infection retreating?
Avatar f tn I have had chronic strep throat since I was little. I even have one tonsil that is constantly swollen and has been for the past 5 years (we call it my bad tonsil). Anyway, my good tonsil is all swelled up and is completely white with blisters. My other symptoms include ear pain, headache, body aches, and soar throat on the blistered side. I have had strep a million times and this doesn't feel like strep. The throat pain isn't bad enough for me to think its strep.
1179627 tn?1263936593 I was recently diagnosed with a throat infection. I suppose it was bacterial because the Doc gave me an injection-form Penicillin and a prescription of 500mg of Amoxicillin (pills). This is my second day on the antibiotic.
Avatar f tn I was just diagnosed with a bad case of strep throat and I'm having a horrible time with it. it feels like I've been swallowing fire - even drinking water brings tears to my eyes. My doctor prescribed an antibiotic (Ceftin - I'm allergic to quite a number of antibiotics so have to be careful what I take) and also a gargle/mouthwash called Magic Mouthwash that has lidocaine, benadryl and Maalox in it that I can gargle with four times a day to help numb my throat and ease the pain.

Avatar f tn which is some extra sensative skin sensation in my arms. I would get this in my younger days before the hard symptoms of flu or strep throat. Sometimes I would get this and nothing would happen, so I wasnt too worried. Day one: when I woke up my throat felt on fire, it burned/hurt to swallow. My mouth was excessively coated with crud when I woke (way more than usual, as I am a mouth breather). My lymph nodes in my neck were moderately swollen and painful.
Avatar f tn I have gotten a sudden sore throat, started three hours ago, and severe pain in my legs especially the back sides of them into my calves starting in my buttocks. I'm wondering if there is any insight into what may be causing his all of a sudden. Neither the throat or leg pain seems to be relieved by anything.
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.
