Avatar n 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. For the cough (dry) antitussives like Dextromethorphan based syrups like Triaminic may help.

Avatar m tn Hi, about 6 weeks ago I was diagnosed with strep throat which I use to get a lot as a kid, because I have very big tonsils.

I got antibiotics, steroids, and another stronger antibiotic.

3055148 tn?1368211800 Since yesterday my throat has been hurting I'm pretty sure I have strep b/c I have white dots on my tonsils. I'm gonna call the doctors when they open. Will they still be able to prescribe me medicine while pregnant.
Avatar f tn They put me on a strep throat medicine, and it cleared up, but came back in April. I took a different medicine, because the lab test showed it wasn't strep, so they figured it was tonsilitis, and it cleared up and I haven't had any more infections since. But for the past 2 days I've had swollen lymph nodes, a mild fever (like 99.5), headache, etc..but no sore throat/tonsils look normal..wondering if its allergies or something..

Avatar f tn There are many varieties of the streptococcus bacterium. One of these, the Group A strep (strep pyogenes) is the most common cause of strep throat. It can also cause infection of other parts of the respiratory tract including the ear, nose and sinuses so the answer to your question is yes. It is reasonable to assume that the strep bacterium that has caused the sore throat is also responsible for the sinus infection and the greenish/yellowish drainage. A caution.
Avatar f tn Firstly, has he been cultured for strep throat and/or had a rapid strep test done? Secondly, steroids are good for getting inflammation down but they cause you get very immunocompromised. Are these oral steroids and were they actually perscribed by a doctor. I would stop the steroids. He could also have a resistant strain of Strep. so they may need to do a antibiotic sensitivity panel if the culutre is still positive. Lastly, it may virus that he got after the initial infection.
Avatar n tn Your first step is to go to your family physician and have him/her check it out, including a strep test for strep throat. Any sore throat lasting a week or more should definitely be checked out. Strep throat is very common (especially in children and young adults) and very treatable, but can lead to serious complications if not treated. So please get your parents or a trusted adult to take you to the doctor and get checked.
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 n tn just the sore throat. Is it just a cold or could it be strep? Can you even have strep throat without a fever?
