Avatar f tn I agree with the above two ladies. If left untreated, the infection could lead to further complications.
Avatar n tn Then I got my period, and during my period I started taking antibiotics because I had a sore throat (how nice right? lol) After my period, my symptoms came back. I was wondering if anyone knew if taking the antibiotics could have caused my infection to come back? I am worried because I am starting to wonder if the infection is something more serious.

Avatar m tn Going untreated is really a bad idea. A middle ear infection can lead to really bad issues, such as mastoiditis. Which is essentially an infection in the bone behind the ear. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn Since chlamydia symptoms are unlikely (50% of men show symptoms) and generally the infection can go away if left untreated, what are the chances that a sexually active person may have been exposed to chlamydia, not know about it, and 2 years later be tested for STDs and not have the infection show up. Since chlamydia can cause damage to men and women, has the damage already been done without knowing about it? Thanks!
Avatar f tn 3 year fell ill. Told...viral, viral, viral...chest/throat/ear infection, left untreated. Stroke like attack...brain scan flagged up a brain aneurysm. No spinal or heart scan even though complained of both. Burning, hot running water in all three areas. Intense pain, continuous daily pain in brain and spine. Yet no scans given on spine. Recent scan on heart, flagged up ventricular systolic dysfunction (RVSD).

Avatar f tn This if left untreated could progress to tonsillitis. The commonest pathogen (agent) causing throat infections is a group A Streptococcus bacteria. 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). Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria.
1939607 tn?1324289300 ve been battling a cold that turned into a sinus infection that was left untreated and led to an ear infection. I am in constant pain; my nose is congested, my ears hurt and i get the worst headaches ever. I went to the doctor this morning and he examined me thoroughly. He told me i have sinus infection and ear infection and that my throat is irritated because of post nasal drip and that my neck lymph nodes are swollen.
Avatar f tn Hi, when we speak of the damaged caused by untreated gono, its usually in the genital area and with men can spread to the testes and women to the other interior parts and cause PID.
1553660 tn?1303684142 Hello Takeashot, Welcome. Sorry to hear about your terribly sore throat. If you have step it requires antibiotics (ATB) to resolve. Gargling with warm salt water can sometimes ease the pain of a sore throat, along with some OTC NSAIDs but when it comes down to it you need to consult your physician. Sorry I cannot be of more help. Strep is nasty and left untreated can be dangerous. Please don't let this go untreated. We'll look forward to your updates.
Avatar m tn OK.. will do.. so if infected and left untreated, the test would be positive for a long standing time regardless if it had cleared on its own or not? That's the last question. Thanks again Doc!
Avatar f tn Itching, burning, really think white discharge are the most common. Any infection can be harmful if left untreated. See your D they will give you the property medication. Don't use vaginal treatments of any kind.
1939607 tn?1324289300 Hello! I am relatively healthy, 25 years old, female. For the past 15 days i've been battling a cold that turned into a sinus infection that was left untreated and led to an ear infection. I am in constant pain; my nose is congested, my ears hurt and i get the worst headaches ever. I went to the doctor this morning and he examined me thoroughly.
Avatar f tn This was a rock hard protrusion,that I in no way thought was any sort of infection. I had no fever,no sore throat,nothing. I did get a referral to an ENT and I will still be going as I still feel like something is stuck in my tonsil,and my one tonsil is still larger. But the growth I was concerned about is gone! I'm Hoping all the weird things going on with this tonsil have all just been a result of an untreated infection.
Avatar m tn I'd also like to add that I've only had sexual intercourse with a boy I dated for several months. My first contact with him was the middle of this past March.
Avatar m tn If you caught Chlamydia trachomatis infection in the throat, the infection would most likely be asymptomatic. There is no known consequence to chlamydial infection of the throat and if it occurred, it would almost certainly resolve even if untreated. The cells which chlamydia infections occur on, columnar epithelial cells are absent from the throat. thus, once again, even if you were one of those rare persons, there would be nothing to be concerned about.

Avatar f tn I've heard hydrogen peroxide, but an ear infection left untreated can cause internal ear scarring and some more series issues so Id definitely go to your doctor or urgent care so it doesn't get worse and cause more issues
