Throat and tongue infections

Common Questions and Answers about Throat and tongue infections


Avatar m tn It could most probably be tonsillitis and a throat infection. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Consult your primary care physician who will do blood tests and take a throat swab to determine the cause and prescribe appropriate medications.
Avatar f tn What causes saliva 2 appear on d tongue continuosly & what causes throat itching
Avatar n tn Sources in the nose include irritation of the nose, sinus infections, allergies. Reflux of gastric contents and some throat infections can also lead to the same type of symptoms. Your son should be examined by a physician. His tongue lesions can be examined at the same time. Good luck.

Avatar f tn Info on thrush Symptoms of Thrush White Tongue A whitening of the top layer of the tongue or the presence of white spots or patches on the tongue can also be seen with infection or chronic inflammation of the surface of the tongue. Certain oral infections, notably Candida yeast infections (known as oral thrush), are characterized by a white tongue.
Avatar f tn If you feel that your bad breath is coming from your throat, it would be a good idea for you to make an appointment to see your doctor to examine your throat to see if you have a build up of catarrh and/or a throat infection or bad tonsils. If you do have a lot of mucus at the back of your throat, you will benefit from doing steam inhalations to loosen up the congestion. To do a steam inhalation, get a bowl and pour in a kettleful of boiling water, taking care not to get scalded.
Avatar m tn Prior to my current symptoms, I had/have experienced frequent diarrhea, a lower back ache, and geographic tongue. During the past 6 months I have significantly curtailed my drinking to only beer, and no more than a few beers a week. I take Lipitor, BP meds, and Ambien. For the last several months, I have been had the following symptoms: Daily sore throat ...
Avatar n tn scaring myself as got soreness on one side of throat and strange blue marks coming on tongue plus funny bump too on one side of it.
Avatar f tn My ear is hurting pretty badly (always my right ear) and on top of that, my throat and my tongue (strangely) are very sore. My tongue feels like there are open sores on it, but I can't find many. I was wondering if the adenoids growing back could cause me to get ear infections and sinus infections again? Post-surgery, I rarely had these problems, but now I'm having them again. Does it make sense to see an ENT? Thanks.
Avatar f tn My tongue was milky white and felt fatty that has since gone away but I still have the sore throat and at times I feel like I'm always clearing my throat, any ideas.
Avatar m tn Besides this Group B Streptococcus, mycoplasma, neisseria and cornybacterium are known to cause throat infections. Other known pathogens causing infections of the throat are viral and yeast (candida). The reason for elaborating about these pathogens is that the tests done and the therapy initiated vary for the listed pathogens. To begin with a throat swab is taken to see for streptococcus.

Avatar f tn Its been 4 days since my gall bladder surgery which was done laprascopically and I now have thrush on my tongue and throat. I go for my post up check up next Wednesday, is this thrush something to be concerned with now? Should I go to the doctor or wait? Why did I get thrush to begin with?
Avatar n tn My throat is sore and my tongue and throat have bumps all over them and white gunk covers my tongue. I can only cough lightly, and every once in a while, I cough up this bright green gunk. I also developed this huge rash that covers my entire neck and chest. I also get tired really quickly and all I do now is sleep and think about sleeping. At first I thought it was only stress from starting college, but it's getting worse, and now it's getting hard to breathe.
Avatar f tn Usually they can be seen on the tongue, inside the cheeks, under the tongue, and in the back of the throat. I suggest you to get an examination done from your doctor and get a KOH examination of the scrapings done of these white coatings. Nystatin liquid is used by swishing a bit in your mouth several times a day and then swallowing the medicine. Throat lozenges containing antifungals can also be used. If the symptoms are severe then oral antifungals may be needed.
Avatar f tn Hi i have bumps on the back of my throat now and blood coming out when i spit up mucus and i have had a sore throat for a month and a half it went away for a tiny bit now its back. With the blood i explained about idk what it could be i am scared and i get frequent.
Avatar n tn The bumps that you see could be the ‘cobble stone’ appearance that occurs in throat infections. Throat infections are 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. So, complete your course of antibiotics. In addition you could take OTC multivitamins.
Avatar f tn You may be suffering from glossitis which causes tongue swelling and changes in tongue color. The common causes of glossitis are bacterial or viral infections, mechanical irritation of the tongue or injuries such as burns, tongue contact with irritants, including tobacco, alcohol and hot or spicy foods, allergic reactions to oral hygiene products and certain medical conditions. See a physician and get the diagnosis confirmed. Do keep me posted. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar m tn I started taking tylenol and eating soup. My throat kept getting worse and I was feeling really sick. I also noticed small dots of white puss on my tonsils. By the 5-6th day I took a strep test and got the results about 2 days later.. Came out positive for Strep Group C. I've been taking z-pack that I had extra for the past 5 days. I am positive for hsv-1 which I believe I've had since I was young BUT I am worried that I may have contracted HSV-2 or some other STD orally.
Avatar f tn When he came back he took a nap. I took his temperature and it was 103. By now his throat started swelling, and eventually swelled up terribley by sunday. Also, he was complaining about his gums and wisdom teeth hurting. With doses of tylonal, I'm getting his temperature to stay down to 99 - 101. Nothing was getting better, only worse. He woke up yesterday morning with a swollen tongue, and was complaining about THAT hurting now. We thought he had strep throat.
Avatar f tn Dear Dr, Hi I have about 4 cracks and wholes on tongue and sore throat hard to swollow and on side of neck my tonsels are quite sore to the touch and I have asthma and I am 48 years old
Avatar f tn I have very dry mouth and my tongue and throat are VERY itchy. It has been going on for a week or so. Today the itchiness is worse and my tongue has white bumps all over it.I have know idea why or what is causing this. Anyone have have any sugestions?
Avatar m tn I've had burning tongue with redness down the middle and on the end for about one month. I had just finished taking two rounds of antibiotics for throat infections which occurred in tandem and I supposed that antibiotics had killed off natural bacteria causing the condition. My MD did not confirm this but gave me a prescription which was filled by a compounding pharmacy. It is a liquid combination of things which I simply swirl around like a mouthwash 3-4 times a day and spit out.
