Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection diet

throat

Avatar m tn The sore throat might have something to do with the lung infection, or it can be due to a infection in the throat, or could be due to smoking, or also could be due to acid reflux from the stomach. So it is hard for me to say. It is up to the doctor to look at your throat or do a culture to see if it is infected. The pain in the stomach may be due the other stomach problem they are giving you the diet for. I 'm not sure. Did you tell the doctor about the pain?
Avatar n tn Hi there, Sore throat can occur due to several causes. The common causes are infectious mononucleosis, streptococcal throat infection, tonsillitis, chronic sinusitis etc. Infections and viruses, gingivitis, malnutrition, dry mouth, dentures, certain toothpastes, alcohol use can lead to swelling of the gum. Maintain oral hygiene. A proper nutrition and diet is equally important. Take a diet rich in vitamin C and B it will help in your sore throat and swollen gums both.

Avatar m tn Then for 3 weeks a lot of mucus all down my throat. Kept feeling like I was gonna choke eating. Then this last week felt like the mucus was in my chest. Doc. said no it isn't so must be somewhere between there and tonsil. I have been kinda worried cause I keep feeling like the back of my throat is closing up, almost similar to gag reflex. Starts to get a little harder to breath, not sure if it's from this symptom or me freaking out about it. Any Ideas on what is going on inside my body?
Avatar f tn Excessive use of antibiotics or steroid inhalers can promote candida overgrowth and infection. It depends on where the infection is, this causes likely symptoms. And if you are allergic to this infection, it could be the cause for your post nasal drip. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn It is good that the you were able to see a doctor and had this evaluated already with diagnosis of throat infection. The effect of antibiotic is not evident in the first days of intake and it is important that symptomatic management is also done. Pain reliever medications, saline gargle, medicated lozenges, soft diet and rest may help provide relief at this time. Continue the prescribed medicines as advised and if it persists, follow up with your doctor is essential.
Avatar n tn Hello, The few common possibilities of your symptoms are acid reflux/GERD, post nasal drip, throat infection, enlarged tonsils etc. Try doing warm saline gargles. That might help. This is only an advice and not a substitute for medical examination. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Keep me posted with more queries. Hope it helped. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar m tn Yes you could theoretically have thrush in your throat and vaginal yeast infection from the cephalexin. Go back to the doctor. You may need treatment. Avoid sugar in your diet and you could start a probiotic to try to restore your balance if you are done with the antibiotic.
Avatar n 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). It’s unlikely that you may catch the same ‘bug’ again. These ‘bugs’ keep changing themselves often in order to survive. These ‘changed bugs’ can cause an infection again. Besides there are other thousands of bugs around which can cause infection. The best bet would be improving one’s immunity.
Avatar f tn My 8 year old daughter has a reoccuring throat infection that requires antibiotics. She took 7 or 8 rounds of it last year and again this year seems to be getting it again. I do not want her to build up antibodies or become allergic to it. I know antibiotics are good here and there, but too much isn't good for you and if I can find a way to help her avoid her throat infections, I'd like to eliminate the need for antibiotics.
Avatar n tn Hi, its unlikely that strep throat infection is caused by oral sex. Recurrent tonsillitis is an indication for tonsillectomy, as the tonsils may harbor the infection which keeps flaring up, or they may develop new infections. The procedure is actually easier to do for an adult as the diameter of the oral cavity is larger. The post-operative care and diet can be similar to that of a child, keep painkillers handy after the surgery.
Avatar m tn I was recently dignosed with a very severe sinus infection. The allergist I was seeing gave me strong antibiotics and after an extensive allergy test determined that I am not allergic to anything. I've had these sinus infections over and over my entire life, generally they start as sinus infections and end up as bronchitis then pluricy. The doctor has no idea why I keep getting such serious infections with no allergies.
Avatar n tn My seven-and-a-half year old son has always had a high number of upper respiratory infections since toddler. Asthmatic symptoms include cough and sometimes wheezing when coming down with viral infection, and when exercising in cold weather. Infections resolve on own, but I'm concerned about high susceptibility to viral infection. Since school began in September, he has been ill with URI seven times, as well as with H1N1. Pediatrician did CBC and seems unconcerned, should I be?
Avatar f tn I was told that I could have a urinary tract infection. I drank Cranberry Juice Concentrate and those symptoms disappeared, but I developed a sore throat. I took an anti-allergen and my sore throat disappeared. One week after that (and three weeks after the sexual encounter on New Year's Eve), I experienced a raw, tenderness/pain on the right side of my throat. That has persisted until today. I visited my doctor and she told me I had a canker sore.
Avatar m tn You could be having a lingering infection in the upper respiratory tract. This could be causing sore throat. Consult your doctor regarding that. Chance of pneumonia is less as there is no fever and cough. The other possibility is chronic fatigue syndrome or post viral fatigue syndrome that occurs after an illness. This can be treated patiently with exercise, good diet, work out plans and multivitamins.

Avatar n tn Also, I had a an open cut at the side of my mouth at the time of the screen and since the doc and me put our hands down my throat I have had an infection of 2 spot like things at the corner of my mouth, that are circle in shape, that go away when I have used antibiotic and eumovate creme but then come back a couple of days later. I am scared that these are chancers.
