Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection for kids


Avatar m tn The swollen neck glands are secondary to the throat infection. It can go away after the infection is treated. Sometimes, the glands persist to be enlarged even after treatment. Please do give us updates. Good luck.

Avatar m tn Don`t worry for that. When there is streptococcal infection of the throat your doctor will prescribe you an antibiotic for 10 days, in this case there is no risk to get heart complication, valvular stenosis or something else. Strep throat leads to heart issues in cases where antibiotic tretment is not maked.
Avatar f tn Sounds to me (from what you are saying) like your throat and sinus infection did not completely clear up! And its now spread to your eye! Although I cannot see you, I am guessing from your lab results. ONLY A DOCTOR CAN DIAGNOSE YOU. Do NOT WAIT 2 DAYS! GO IMMEDIATELY TO ER AT YOUR LOCAL HOSPITAL. A WBC THAT HIGH WITH FEVER CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS! You do not want infection to get in your blood! DONT DELAY!
Avatar f tn To begin with a throat swab is taken to see for streptococcus. If needed a throat culture will show the growth and the antibiotics to which the pathogens are most susceptible to. During culture it would be worthwhile to test for yeast infections also besides bacterial infections. Viral infections are by exclusion and do not need any antibiotic therapy unless there are super added infections. The antibiotic of choice for a streptococcal infection is penicillin but azithromycin is also effective.
Avatar n tn When our kids did not get the sore throat I became concerned and looked up STD/HIV symptoms and was devistated. I went for test at 19 days it was negative. Not reliable I know. After getting tested I had a lose of appetite, another sore throat, mouth watering, little white dots (not thrush) on insides of cheek, jawpain, fever blister on lip (usually get those when im stressed) unusual pain at week 9 on upper left abdomen kinda dull. I am so scared.
Avatar n tn It sounds like he may have a lymph node enlarged from infection. It is common for lymph nodes to swell and take some time to go back to normal. There are so many infections that kids get and they tend to run higher fevers than adults. It sounds like you have done all you can do by taking him to the doctor and running tests. My kids both have had swollen nodes and fevers that lasted but it never turned out to be anything serious. It is scary to wait and wonder.

Avatar m tn Hello Doc. I'm in a relationship for several years. Couple of weeks ago I had *protected* anal receptive sex with someone else...(all is secret here). The condom was intact...all OK. I've been having a mild sore throat with some sores in the back of throat for a while (never had any)...and feeling pain in my neck and armpits..on top of that I'm sleepy more than usual... Is there really a chance for infection? (no oral, proper condom use) .. I am kinda losin my mind here.
Avatar m tn looking for advise, my son is 9+yrs and has had a stiff neck since oct/nov last year. suddenly 2mo's ago he got really swollen glands with sore throat and bad chest infection with wheezing asthma, followed by high fever ard 5days later. it affected his liver too for e next 2months_swollen and palpable, with upset stomach and pain below the ribs. the doc suspected EBV, so he was told no sports for 2mo's. a test showed that it was an old ebv infection, but not active.
Avatar f tn My question... could I have given myself strep throat (or another kind of throat infection) by giving oral sex after vaginial intercourse. This in something I have hardly ever done (ie oral sex after intercourse) but now I have strep throat. I haven't gone to the doctor, just started amoxicillian I have here (four kids) and it has cleared up (also a rash on my face) in a few days. Is it a coincidence or do I need to avoid this act in the future.
Avatar m tn 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. If needed a throat culture will show the growth and the antibiotics to which the pathogens are most susceptible to. During culture it would be worthwhile to test for yeast infections also besides bacterial infections.
Avatar m tn t a std going on. go and be seen and get a proper exam and some basic testing done for strep throat and discuss with your doctor if it's worthwhile to also swab for oral std's or not too.
Avatar m tn I'm a 24 year old male. For about the last year ive had a bit of a mystery going on with my throat, i started to notice my lymph nodes acting up, i could feel them, also my uvula was poking my tongue..VERY annoying and something ive dealt with on and off for a year, i had blood tests done, cultures ultra sounds of the nodes, nothing irregular found. Its been going on for so long its affecting my quality of life...
Avatar n tn Within hours I get sinus blocking then lots of green goobers from my throat the next day and if unlucky cold like symptoms for a day or three before it clears up, I jut take throat sweets and flu remedies. Having been together for many months I choose to avoid giving oral pleasure. Yes I know I should discuss it but in doing so I'd like to know what we should do next, is it the doctors, is it the pharmacy or is it a clinic?
Avatar m tn His solution was to come in once a week for a shot in each arm for 3 months costing me for each visit. His allergy test and follow up visits had already cost me over $500 over what my cafeteria plan covered. I could not afford to do this so I let it go. It eventually cleared up for the most part but I still have some congestion every morning and after I eat. I drink a lot of liquids. I think this is because my throat always feels dry.
Avatar f tn I have had a sore throat for months and nausea for a couple of weeks and i burn up at night (when i get home from work) i have been to see my GP and he prescribed Nasonex mometasone furoate. He said 5 days and it should work, its been a week and i feel worse.
Avatar f tn I had unprotected sex and performed oral the following day I received a throat infection. What are the chances that it could be hiv?

Avatar m tn I decided to go to a clinic where they could do a quick swab test and prescribe me meds for what I assumed to be strep throat. The test they ran came back negative, and the nurse practitioner said it was likely a viral infection. On Monday, I recorded a fever of around 100-101 and the swelling in my throat had gotten to the point where my tonsils were completely covered by exudate. Swallowing was painful and difficult. Started to experience a bit of fatigue/aching.
Avatar n tn For the past few weeks, my throat feels like it's closing (on and off throughout the day). It's gotten really bad the last few days and I have the sensation 24/7. It's worse when I lay down, but still feel it when I'm up. It's so distracting, it's hard to get through my day. I have an apt. with my ENT next week. I had a mild case of GERD a few years ago and was on Nexium for one year - then the dr.
