Avatar f tn t have an infection you may be limited to cough drops and saline nasal spray since most sinus/cough meds contain pseudoephedrine and/or phenylephrine
Avatar m tn I did have an ear infection with a bad sore throat and lots of congestion last year. Could these medicines be used for treating that? I can't read Chinese so I don't remember why I have these meds. I do live with my girlfriend but I don't think they are her meds. Thanks for any help you can give.
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 May 30th ā€“ Notice pus pockets on throat. Go to an Emergency Clinic in my hometown (2.5 hours away from where I live) about sore throat. I explain the sinus infection and course taken. Doctor does a strep test that comes back negative. Insists its strep ā€“ and that Iā€™m not over the sinus infection. Doctor gives me a shot of penicillin. June 1st ā€“ Throat feels worse. Can barely swallow, and it hurts to turn my head, to speak, to eat, everything.
Avatar f tn If not any stomach pain? I think of two things one is an infection if you had a productive cough or sore throat. THe other is perhaps it is bile from the gallbladder or a stomach ulcer something along those lines might fit since you have a lack of appetite as well and constipation. You may be backed up due to the constipation. I would see a GI doctor and have them give you an exam as well as perhaps some scans.
Avatar n tn The ER physician diagnosed me with tonsillitis and an ear infection. I have been on Amoxicillin since as well as Pramoxine and Ciprodex. Today is my 4th day of meds and I am getting very little relief from the ear pain and the feeling of fluid in my ear which is decreasing my hearing. The sore throat has subsided with the exception of a little tenderness yesterday. The fatigue and lethargy have not subsided as well. I have had no fever at all.
Avatar n tn and Green is old infection. You need to see MD and get some meds for infection. Hope this helps!
276730 tn?1327962946 I'm on the 8th or 9th round of antibiotics since starting tx, 61 weeks ago. Mine is mostly sinus/throat/upper respiratory stuff and a nasty UTI. Before TX I got frequent sinus infections, too - I'm on allergy meds and injections as well as cipro, allergy meds, nexium, TX meds - interferon and riba wreak havoc on the immune system.
Avatar m tn You may have infected your eye from the throat infection and it might be cleared by the Azithromycin if it is the same organism that is causing the problem. But usually they give you eye drops for an eye infection that have antibiotics in them, so I'm not sure if the oral med will care of the problem. You could also have an allergy, virus in the eye or have accidently got something else in your eye. Try eye drops and if it doesn't clear up in a day or two then see an eye doctor.
Avatar f tn I have the worse cold ever...sore throat and can't stop blowing my nose..what can I take???
Avatar m tn i think i had the virus so you said the antbotic will still work for chlamydia or gonorrea,? do you think you can get gonorreha or chlamydia if she has it in her throat?
Avatar f tn Your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications.
Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, you are suffering from respiratory tract infection involving bronchus and there can be possibility of involvement or spread to upper respiratory tract including throat and nose. Bacterial infection is one of the common causes. This infection is complicated by acute bronchitis which is accompanied by productive cough. In such case, empirical therapy with broad spectrum antibiotics should be given.
Avatar n tn t understand either why they gave you meds if your cultures came back negative. Maybe you have just a regular throat infection? Give them a call today to ask why you were prescribed meds.
Avatar n tn Your doctor only confirmed you have a throat infection. There are many other throat infections that do not have anything to do with gonorrhea. Do not assume this infection is from the oral sex. Most throat infections can clear up on their own in time.
Avatar f tn My doctors thought it was strep throat and they gave me some meds that made me get red bumps all over. They then swabbed my throat and realized it was monno, and gave me the right meds. I'm going to the emergency room tommorow I think. Any help is appreciated.
Avatar f tn My girlfriend is having some trouble with her throat and possibly her sinusis. It started when she felt like her throat was contracting and it was hard to get air..Then she noticed a few yellowish bumps/lumps at the very back of her throat. When she swallows it's like a "clicking noise and a feeling of something rubbing in her throat/neck further down She hasn't had pain but more recently it has started buring some what.
Avatar n tn 11 weeks and feeling awful with a sore throat and sinus pressure. It's been getting worse and the pain has expanded over the last few days (monday it was just one sore tonsil and today it's my sinus cavities, throat down to the tops of my lungs). And its tripling my morning sickness today..... Anyone recommend anything over the counter? I don't think I can get to a Dr till Monday unless I go to an urgent care place tonight.....
Avatar f tn White patches are common in many throat infections. The sore throat 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. If the patches increase in size or become painful then consult your doctor. Regards.
5609044 tn?1383514943 Okay ladies what can I do about a sore throat. I'm Scared to take any kind of meds.
Avatar n tn A few days ago (one week from dental appointment for teeth extraction) I had to take her to the doctors for a sore throat (very painfull and red) She was told she had a Viral Infection that could last for a while and really nothing they could do for her. Because her throat was really raw, they gave her 800mg Motrin for the pain and Amox. even though they said it most likely would not help much due to the fact that it was not a throat infection. My question is this...

Avatar m tn Anytime I would have sex the pain afterwards was unbearable and I would avoid ejaculating at all cost. About 6 weeks ago I started to have sore throat with drainage down the back of my throat which I wasn't able to cough up and thought to myself something is going wrong here with my symptoms. I try not to tie the symptoms together but that's difficult to do such. So like any normal person I go get tested 2 1/2 months after initial problems.
Avatar n tn There is so much going around at bthe moment colds coughs chicken pox,you sound like you have had the flu and a virul infection maybe a throat infection which causes high fever,take paracetamol for temp and drink plenty of fluids
