Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection home remedies


Avatar f tn / any natural home remedies that worked for u ladies? I want to avoid it turning into a cough as I will be having a csection and I had an awful cough with my 1st. it was sooo painful to cough with the incision and resulted in me getting an infection that took longer for me to heal...
Avatar f tn I was avoiding close contact...and sanitizing my hands frequently but still I got throat infection day before yesterday :( Hats off to immunity in pregnancy...please suggest if you have some home remedies to cure asap..
Avatar f tn it started before he got the antibiotic though, and before the MRSA throat infection was diagnosed. And this all started with what I thought was a virus. Do you think he should get a sputum culture, and is that even possible when he's not coughing? Thanks again for all your advice, you've been very helpful, which is very much appreciated.. it makes this a lot harder that he's in another country and I can't talk to the doctors there.
Avatar f tn In my last pregnancy my Dr recommended a high dose of vitamin C for 2-3 days. 2000-3000mg each day to boost the immune system.I had a cold hang around for four months of pregnancy, and it helped my body recover finally! your body pees out what it can't absorb so it's safe, but don't do it for more than 4 days, you can end up with a sore tongue /mouth.

324372 tn?1222823802 , it's just a spray that you spray in your throat several times a day. It's all natural and alcohol free with no side effects. It's good for fever, chills, achiness, nausea, fatigue, headaches, congestion, coughs and sneezing. It is really expensive but that's what we take in my family and it seems to be working. My son HATES taking RX cough medicine but loves this stuff because it has no taste what-so-ever! I get mine at a health food store or an organic pharmacy.
Avatar n tn I dont know much about home remedies but I will tell you that after a certain point in my pregnancy, my nose became so sensitive. I think maybe after 12 or 15 weeks this happened. When you sneeze, try to bend forward a bit. I sneeze hard too and it use to hurt. So now when I sneeze, I bend forward at me waist and it doesnt put any strain on my uterus. or so it seems.

Avatar m tn Treatment includes cough suppressants, a trial therapy with bronchodilators, avoiding triggering factors. If you do not favor medicines then can try available home remedies like use of honey and echinacea. I suggest you to consult respiratory specialist. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn They are safe to take. If just home remedies, a humidifier, sudafed (the original), saline to wash out your nose as much as possible and warm compresses on your face.
Avatar m tn throat infection since childhood almost every time treated by doctors with antibiotics like Amoxycilin, Ciprox, Erythromycin, etc. If I tried home remedies like steam inhalation, hot water gargling, etc. infection worsens to the extent it effects digestion. However, after 50+ age now, these attacks getting more frequent, almost monthly even after treatment by antibiotics. Also, I get tired easily & feel weak & aching in extremities.
Avatar n tn If you have time you should go to the doctor. If you can't read up upon how you can cure your sore throat with home remedies. This way it will be accessible to you . here's a link that might help you out
Avatar n tn It typically causes creamy colored sore patches in the mouth. You may also have a sore throat. Genitally, a male yeast infection may cause itching, dry skin, and burning when you pee. Yeast infections usually clear up with topical antifungal treatment. You may think that using condoms or dams for sex can prevent sharing a yeast infection with your partner. However, it's best to delay sex until after treatment has been completed.
Avatar n tn Does anyone have any idea of what this could be and could it be related to my son? Also if i cant see a doctor for myself are there any home remedies or will i have to suck it up and go to the doctor?
Avatar f tn What if its an actual throat infection? My throat is really really red. Hurts to swallow. I've tried all the natural home remedies. Homemade chicken soup with lots of lemon, hot tea with lemon and honey, salt water gargle, straight up lemon honey and a little bit of water syrup :( it's helped a bit but im undecided whether to make a doctor appointment or not. I did the Vicks vapor rub last night and it did help with the congestion. Now my nose is like a leaky faucet.
Avatar f tn I took her to another doctor early January and they did a strep test and it must have been negative because they only contact if positive... I've been doing home remedies, it has gradually gotten better but she still has much discomfort even now... Can anyone shed any light on this situation?... she did have other symptoms for a reasonable amount of time such as low fever tiredness but those have passed except she still gets tired at times...any suggestions would be appreciated...
Avatar n tn It is not as bad as before when I could barely stand, but it is still there, and the fact that the pain is still there means I still have a fungal infection. Recently, my doctor said I have a candida infection, and gave me Diflucan (flucanozole) to take for 10 days. I just finished it and there was no apparent effect. Now, I'm not so sure it is a fungal infection. Urine and blood analyses done back in August showed no bacteria in the blood or urine. Could it still be a bacterial infection?
Avatar m tn The main thing to remember to do is to keep your throat moist - a most throat won't feel as sore and scratchy as a dry throat will and a dry throat is more likely to cause coughing, which will further irritate your throat. If the sore throat is caused by a bacterial infection such as strep, the above home remedies will still provide relief from pain, but like with a virus, it won't get rid of the bacteria causing the infection and in order to do that, you will need an antibiotic.
17489628 tn?1458799938 Cmon ppl, we need to figure this out, work is sooooo stressful for me now. EVERYONE i walked by today coughed, some only cleared their throat and rubbed their nose, but mostly ppl were coughing. It's not me being crazy when EVERYBODYS reacting, i could understand a few ppl, but this is everybody. I can feel and smell somekind of odor im giving off.
Avatar m tn I also had thick discolored mucus, started out orange, to yellow, to green. I never had this as well. After, 6 days it wasn't getting better with home remedies so I called my PCP, he said it was just a cold/flu and to give it time. Well, the next day I couldn't stand it anymore and went to a different PCP and he said I had a throat infection and prescribed me Augmentin 875 mg. Immediately I felt better and all my symptoms went away.
Avatar n tn my throat is giving me awful problems lately had 1 tonsil out 3 months ago and still 1 there bled 2 much so stoped operation i have being on antibiotics the last month nearly for infection and steroids to bring down flamed throat.
Avatar n tn The mucous sliding down the back of my throat is still everpresent, and causes me to constantly clear my throat, which oftentimes triggers a coughing episode, though the coughing has subsided considerably. Since my daughter recently had a c-section and has two other children, she's needed me to help her and I'm afraid to go anywhere near the newborn, not knowing if this mucous thing with the accompanying cough is contagious or not.
Avatar f tn My 11 year old son has been having problems with throat clearing and making noises in his throat when eating. His began last fall after a throat infection. He had repeated tonsillitis over the next few months and the throat noises were constant. We had his tonsils out in December and the throat clearing and noises stopped instantly.
192055 tn?1263559137 For about a year now, it feels like I have phlegm/mucus stuck in my throat and can't completely clear my throat. Also when I cough, its a lil wet and there is phlegm. When I started to have the problem, I went to the doc and he said it just may be sinuses and sent me on my way... but never went away. I went to the doc while I was in Basic Training in SC... then went to GA for 4 months... back to FL for a few months (where i use to live) and now I am in NC....
Avatar n tn ) I've been reading a number of posts here, in the archives, about phlegm in the throat. I have phlegm in the back of my throat all the time. I'm certain this is contributing to my snoring. One extremely helpful post said that constant phlegm in the throat is comes from congestion that is above or below your throat. If the congestion is in the chest this could be due to asthma. I'm not asthmatic, I don't smoke or live with a smoker, so that's out.
Avatar n tn thanks for your response. it could very well be strep as i have spent all day online researching the posibilities visa vie the symptoms .. but in truth, seems like it could be 3-4 other things based on my recent activies. one thing about the body aches .. i havent had the flu lately .. in fact in more than half a year .. so its highly doubtful that the body aches are being caused by that .. but its also possible that the body aches are being caused by something altogether different.
1770443 tn?1313979549 He said the infection was gone, but that I still had postnasal drip and that this explained the spots on my throat as well as the congested ears. So he prescribed Fexofenadine and some ear drops and sent me back on my way. That brings us to the present. I haven't taken the meds very well as they keep me from sleeping well and just make me feel weird. So, admittedly, the fact that the symptoms are persisting could very well be my own fault.
Avatar f tn Treatment includes cough suppressants, a trial therapy with bronchodilators, avoiding triggering factors, and available home remedies like use of honey and echinacea. I suggest you to consult physician specialized in respiratory medicine for evaluation and prescription and above drugs. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn It would be a good idea to see your doctor to rule out asthma or a throat infection. Make sure you drink plenty of water. Won't stop it, but it keeps you and your throat hydrated and gets rid of any irritant in your throat. Best wishes.
