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 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 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 n tn My daughter has been complaining of throat pain for the last 3 months. we have taken her to her pediatrician and she couldnt figure out what was wrong with her. We took her to the ENT and he didnt find anything wrong with her. 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 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 n tn Consider your drinking water a source. We were on well water and were informed that the constant strep throat infection my kids had could be coming from the water they were drinking. Strep can be passed through water. Ever since we have been on bottled water we have been in the clear. This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/283902'>recurring strep throat in our family</a>.
Avatar m tn t sound like an STD related issue it is an infection or a cyst that is draining (regarding the labial area). If the throat or the labial area don't clear up and/or if you re-develop a fever see your doctor.
Avatar n tn No Teak what I said is every United States hospital are required by federal law to test a pregnant women for HIV. Not all countries do this testing. So if Teed1 kids were born in the US there is no possible way he had HIV!
Avatar m tn Hi guys just wondering would cefixime treat a throat infection of gonorrhea ?
Avatar f tn His throat will be very red, and sometimes he has ulcers in his throat as well. His doctor says that it probably starts with a viral infection and then causes his throat to become very infected. The doctor also says that he could be picking up bacteria from his hands. Toddlers tend to put their hands in their mouths alot ( and my son ***** his thumb when he is sleepy).I wash his hands often but he still gets these throat infections.
Avatar m tn she has streap throat after the culture was done. also, she had trace amount of blood in the urine which they are doing a culture too. she doesnt complain of it burning, but did have stomach pains which we were told could all be related to strep. also swollen neck glands, other glands fine.
Avatar f tn Hello, my boyfriend, who lives in another country, has been sick for a few weeks. It started with what seemed to be a cold or flu, but he has been getting worse. His throat has been very sore. A couple weeks ago a doctor gave him antibiotics without doing a test, the prescription was for 5 days, unfortunately he doesn't remember which antibiotic it was. His throat was still hurting and he said he could see pus, so I told him he should get tested for strep.
Avatar f tn I met the doctor again and again he gave antibiotics for a week (Cefpodoxime proxetil) for throat infection. I completed the course of Antibiotics, however I still had very mild throat, sometime on the left side of the throat and right side of throat but rarely on middle of throat and intermittent squeezing pain. however it was only mild and irritating.
4250330 tn?1388621179 When you had the UTI did your Dr put you on antibiotics? If not, you may be getting a kidney infection. It can really make you sick. Body aches, a urine smell, back pain. Is there anyone that can watch your kids for a couple of hours while you see a Dr? It's really important that you see one if you did not get treated for the UTI.
