Throat infection allergies

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection allergies


Avatar n tn Please I need an opinion, I have been suffering for the last 2 months of some sort of throat infection that was initially treated with antibiotics and nothing happened, the doctor sent me to make some throat cultures that brought up nothing, not bacteria infection appeared. One month ago more or less, some night fevers started to appear as well as very bad headaches and tiredness, my normal temperature is 36.5 and the temperature at night increases to 37 or 37.5 without passing the 37.5.
Avatar m tn Its unlikely. It could most probably be tonsillitis and a throat infection. There could also be an allergic component. 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.

Avatar f tn I went to my doctor for a routine exam and had him look at my right ear and throat as I had woken up that morning with slight pain. He said I had an ear and throat infection and e-prescribed me an antibiotic. Well, that evening I went to pick my prescription up but the pharmacy didn't receive it. I was leaving the next morning for a business trip and didn't have time to deal with it. Since my symptoms weren't too bothersome I wasn't too concerned.
Avatar m tn Hi there, Recently I had unprotected sex with guy, who told me that he is Negative HIV. As I was really worried about my case he got another test 2 weeks ago and it was Negative. But I am still worried because it's almost 3 days that I have sore throat, is not really sharp or painful but this is make me nervous and stressed. Actually I have allergies and sometimes even the allergy cause ears infection and I can't hear very well, so I use histamines (almost 3 years).
Avatar f tn I have had allergies as long as I can remember. When I was a kid my allergies caused ear infections, itchy eyes, itchy nose, etc. I went to an allergist at age 16, had my sinuses drained, and was tested for allergies. I began taking allergy shot, but when I got pregnant at age 19, my dr told me to stop the shots so the baby would not be affected. Since then of course, I keep a stuffy nose, draining, itchy red eyes, sneezing, and ear aches.
Avatar f tn Sinus infections can cause stuffiness of the nose with nasal blockage, which can make breathing through the nose difficult. It can also cause post nasal drip and lead to an irritation/infection in the throat. There are tubes called 'Eustachian tubes' which connect the middle ear to the throat, this balances the air pressure in the ears. This tube can get blocked due to infections of the throat, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears.
Avatar n tn Could just be something wrong with her throat if she has allergies or something like that. Also could very well be a tic. I would ask your doctor about this.
Avatar m tn As per my previous post I had a throat infection and couple of skin infections for which my doc prescribed week course of erythromycin, seemed to clear the throat but then within days it was back 10 times worse accompanied by singular swollen pea sized node under left armpit and neck felt glandy, doctor has put me on another week course of erythromycin, 2 days in my throat still hurts like hell and myblegs fell like ive ran a marathon, also keep getting pains in armpits and left breast area (s
Avatar f tn Hello, everyone! Two days ago, I had a TERRIBLE sore throat. Went to the doctor to get swabbed, did not come back for strep. No fever, but I felt sweaty at night (I think it was due to bad dreams LOL). Accompanied by a pounding headache. The next day, I woke up congested with a runny nose, I coughed up some green phlegm and felt fine the rest of the day. Now, I'm sneezing a bit with clear mucus and it doesn't feel like a cold at all.
Avatar n tn Mountain cedar is making me miserable, went to Dr today, gave me z pack for ear infection. But my nasal passages are swollen shut & can only breathe through mouth. I can only use saline drops & they don't really work. Anyone else suffering? Any remedies would be appreciated!
Avatar n tn Also, the lymph tissue at the back of my throat was quite swollen (and continues to be) It seemed not to concern her - she indicated it could be allergies or a viral infection, or perhaps even acid reflux. Well, I was put on a PPI and it has had no results (2 weeks now). I wasn't expecting much because I have never had reactions to food and I don't really get heartburn. Also, I am not really allergic to anything. So it has me concerned about a persistent viral infection.
2072659 tn?1340597373 Looks like you have developed a nasal allergy which has progressed to a throat infection as well. There are tubes called 'Eustachian tubes' which connect the middle ear to the throat, this balances the air pressure in the ears. This tube can get blocked due to infections of the throat, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears and the resultant sounds. This can also result in infection of the ears.
Avatar n tn My son is 9 years old and has been clearing his throat for over a year now, I have brought him to an Allergist and a Ear Nose and Throat expert, he has been tested for allergies and has none. He did have a nasal infection and was treated for it, he continues to clear his throat and spit out yellow/green mucas. The doctors say he Ok but I doubt it.
Avatar f tn Sounds like a terrible infection! Is there no public transportation in the area you live in? I wonder if you have infection in your body and if so, you don't want to leave that untreated, as infections can be very serious. The description in your head sounds like some sort of neuropathy symptomology. I do hope you will see a doctor soon!
2085202 tn?1373199740 Hello, a couple of months back I looked in my mouth and throat and noticed a red blotch or patch in the upper right corner of my throat. I have had super bad allergies and sinus infections. I was wondering if this could be due to that? Some kind of infection or irritation? Or possibly a cyst? Any input ideas and advice would be greatly appreciated. I had just gone to an ear nose and throat Dr. about sinus infection/ allergies and Dr.
Avatar n tn She complains every day and wakes up crying during the night that her throat and ears hurt her. Could this be allergies? we have a dog and a cat in the house. We need some answers im tired of seeing her in pain.
Avatar m tn 2) Could this just be really bad allergies and post nasal drip as I do have allergies? He said allergies would not have caused the white in the back of the throat and the intense pain. 3) If it is not strep throat, what else could it be? And why are the antibiotics helping it if it isn't strep? I am traveling out of the country right at the end of this prescription and am petrified this is going to come back.
Avatar f tn This excess mucus leads to congestion,cough and sore throat and earache due to pressure on the tympanic membrane.This sore throat is called pharyngitis. It usually occurs when viruses (or sometimes bacteria) from a cold, flu, or sinus infection involve the throat. The treatment depends on the underlying cause. Viral infections are managed with warm salt water gargles, pain relievers like aspirin., and fluids.Rest adequately and do not smoke.
Avatar f tn I went to bed that night and this sore throat woke me up several times. I woke up with a lot of mucus in my throat and soreness. I got up that morning and it seemed to move from my throat to my nose. I had a drippy nose that day along with headache and all around stuffy sick feeling. I went to bed early that night, and woke up 3 hours later with really bad facial pain. So bad that I was difficult for me to go back to sleep and I actually started vomiting.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have 2 lymph nodes always up on the right side of my throat aswell as one in the right side of my neck. The one in my neck has been up since Feb 2010. Along with that i have a slightly swollen left tonsil but i've had 3 doctors tell me that its nothing to worry about. I suffer from allergies and ALWAYS have a runny nose, even in Summer. I think i may have post nasal drip aswell. I was just wondering is it normal for my lymph nodes to be up all the time because of my allergies?
Avatar f tn I also havent had a sinus infection in over 4 years since I started it! Love it! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/283635'>Phlegm Constricted In Throat:</a>.
Avatar f tn I think I may have a cold or it may just be my allergies from the weather changing but I cannot breathe through my nose! I am all clogged up and my nose keeps running and I've been sneezing constantly and I have a really itchy and sore throat and my left ear is killing me so I think I may have an ear infection as well. I am taking benadryl for it but doesn't really seem to help. Is there anything else I can take?
Avatar f tn It could be from dental problems or a virus or bacterial infection, such as a throat infection, or from allergies. This time of year, allergies are a common culprit. If he has a sore throat or fever or mouth discomfort, or if there is a hot spot in his head or neck, he needs medical attention to check for an infection that needs treatment. If he doesn't get other symptoms, watch the nodes and make sure they go down. I do remember having shotty nodes in my neck for years.
Avatar m tn This freaked me out as I had given her oral and thought she might of given me some infection in my throat. A week has gone on now since and the congestion may have gotten even worse, I have swollen lymph nodes and slight chest pain/tightness. However, the sore throat is gone now. Could this be a STD? Or is it just a sinus infection which I tend to get pretty often.
Avatar n tn m not sure what the typical time frame is for symptoms to appear, and I read that gonorrhea of the throat is typically asymptomatic. If I went to the doctor and just told them I was having a sore throat and headaches, would they be able to tell the difference between gonorrhea and strep throat?
