Avatar f tn My husband has been having pain under his collarbone when he swallows and went to a ear nose and throat specialist.

Avatar m tn Around the same time I developed swollen glands in my neck and a mild sore throat. Sore throat went away in about 3 days and the blisters (there were about 10) disappeared a week and a half later. Now I'm 4 weeks from initial encounter and I still have large sensitive swollen glands in my neck and less swollen around my groin. I'm pretty sure my body temperature has been slightly higher than usual for the last 2 weeks also. Is this normal for having contracted herpes?

Avatar n tn Over the course of the day my symptoms worsened, I had a severly sore throat, swollen glands, headache, all of my joints ached but mot my muscles and had no fever.

Avatar n tn So, I performed oral sex on a guy less than a week ago and I now have swollen throat glands and a semi-regular cough. I currently don't have medical insurance, so the plan as of right now is just to wait for it to pass. But at what point should I be concerned (or should clue me in) that this isn't a cold/strep/sore throat, and that this might be gonorrhea or some other STD? And if/when it goes away, should I continue to worry about it, or does that mean whatever caused it has passed?
Avatar f tn It has now been a month that my neck glands and my throat glands have been swollen steady. It is not sore, the only pain I feel is when they start to grow bigger, when ever i'm chewing and swallowing it will feel like a pinch sometimes, but not always. I went to my doctor early this week, but he's not sure whether to put my on antibotics for 2 weeks or not because he thinks it could either make it better or make me feel worse.
Avatar m tn My male golden (almost 6 years old) has two swollen glands in his neck. On either side of his throat. do we need to take him to the vet? He was there in September.
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 old was seen today for a fever and sore throat complaint. the ped. said she has a throat infection and swollen glands and prescribed meds. she did check other areas of her body for glands (at least that is what i think she was feeling for). about 7 weeks ago she had the same thing (tho the whole family passed around a fever/infection). should we be overly concerned that she has been sick like this twice in two months? what would be the tell tale signs of leukemia or lymphoma in a child?
