Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection healing time


Avatar f tn if present it could indicate that there is persisting infection. White patches are common in many throat infections. The sore throat and tonsillitis which you had may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and gargle.
Avatar f tn I was wondering how long would a normal time be for healing from a wound? My dog seems to have a very slow healing time. She has hurt her paw before, which took forever to heal. And now the scab above her eye still isn't all the way healed. Is there something I can do to help her? It doesn't seem to bother her, but I want it to heal faster, so there won't be much room for infection or anything else to happen.

Avatar f tn To determine the cause, your doctor may perform a rapid strep test or throat swab culture. Monospot test will be positive for mono infection. Treatment will consist of antibiotics to cure the infection in case of bacterial infection. Antibiotics may be given as a single shot or taken 10 days by mouth. If the tonsillitis is caused by a virus, antibiotics won't work and your body will fight off the infection on its own.
Avatar f tn This time the symptoms were milder than than the first time, but my nodes started to swell around the chin about a week after my doc told me my throat was red and this time I did not have tonsilitis. then a couple days later I felt more throbbing under my jaw. A day later, throbbing in my neck, then 2 days later I felt a buring sensation down both sides of the back of my neck.The next morning I felt tiny nodes on the back of the right side of my neck, then under my armpits.

6820152 tn?1385089722 Hi, looks like you have a throat infection and this can sometimes aggravate symptoms asthma. The symptoms described could be due to an infection, 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.
Avatar n tn The book "Healing with Whole Foods" outlines foods that are healing for the lungs. Also the Vitamin Bible. I've suffered with it all my life and my diet is constantly changing to help me heal my lungs. It's best not to start children on a heavy dairy, sugar and meat diet to begin with. Vaccinations and dental mercury were most probably the initial cause of my lung problems. Swimming in a chlorine pool every day in the summer did not help. Nor did my poor diet.
Avatar f tn But the last 3 times hes gotten very bad throat infections. 1st time he thought he just had a soar throat, really bad. 2nd time he was out for a week, he had to get a penicillin shot. And this last time he was standing up and almost passed out, fell over twice before going into see a doctor, again its a throat infection, really bad. we hadnt put 2 and 2 together until recently, but maybe that fact that he was giving me oral is making him sick... is this possible?

Avatar m tn I am now going into the 4th week of the medicine and the foot is healing up nicely and most of the sores on my face and in my throat are gone. I am still however getting a random blister like on the back of my leg or on the back of my arm and one on my chest. These blisters are about dime sized and filled with clear fluid. They aren't painful but are sometimes itchy and they just appear out of no where and become bothersome. The blisters take about 2 weeks or more to go away.
Avatar n tn In my opinion I have some infection in my cheek due to a tooth or a sinus infection that is not responding to Antibiotics any longer (augmenton works but slowly), doxycyclene keeps any problems from worsening but does not promote healing, amoxicillian also has little effect (interesting that augmenton has a slow killing and healing effect but amoxicillian does not). if there are any doctors out there who want to find out why the hell I have this ongoing for over 15 years please write me.
