Throat infection on babies

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection on babies


Avatar f tn Two weeks later ended up in the dentist with a wisdom tooth infection. Swollen node on left side. He put me on antibiotics and tge day after i got extremely sore throat and white stuff on tonsils. Went to hospital and was told there's a mass on my tongue that looks abnormal. It suddenly appeared they are sending me to an ent to have it biopsied for cancer. I'm terrified i just need some words of wisdom. Anything i have 3 babies and scared to death.
Avatar n tn strep throat and herpes have nothing to do with each other. strep throat is a bacterial infection, herpes is a viral infection. 1 out of every 2-3 adults has hsv1 orally whether they get obvious cold sores or not to know it. About 1/3 of us contract hsv1 orally before we ever set foot into public school. It's THAT common. Your grandchild could've contracted hsv1 orally from any adult who takes care of her or even from sharing toys, pacifiers etc with other children she's around.
676912 tn?1332812551 The dr I took Elijah to last weeks said babies don't get sore throats, and she said babies don't really get sick. WELL Aubryana (DD 8weeks)has a fever today and has been coughing. Elijah (DS2) had an ear infection and a cold(?) I guess, I'm taking him back to the dr again tomorrow to see what's going on with his ear infection, and about the cough since he's had it a week and has a history of severe bronchitis. SO is my baby girl getting sick, or what?

Avatar f tn What a horrible experience for you, as a mom, and your son. Is your son on antibiotics? The reason I ask this question is that sometimes when people take antibiotics they can develop "thrush", white coating, and also sores on the tongue. My teenage son had this happen to him recently which I thought only happened when they were babies. It's like a yeast infection of some sort. I may be way off on this but I hope it helps give you something to ponder on.
Avatar f tn All I can tell you is to please, please be very careful about letting it go very much longer without another opinion. One of my sons developed a severe case of strep after a having an episode much like you are describing. It started out as an ear infection according to the doctor, though he did say it could be strep, but the strep titer was negative at the time. He was put on antibiotic but continued to worsen. He became very weak, dark circles under his eyes.
203342 tn?1328737207 I just got back from seeing a doctor and after going over my blood result tests he believes a lot of my throat issues (raspy voice, achy feeling and/or lump feeling at the base of my throat) is due to an infection on my thyroid and once we clear that up I should be fine. My TSH levels were within normal but my T3 and T4 were high. He retested to make sure I don't have Graves and that came back negative.
Avatar m tn Its been going on for so long its affecting my quality of life...i have small white patches on the back of my throat, not raised theyre flush with my skin, and they dont go away shrink or come off, sometimes my jaw hurts but my wisdom teeth are coming in and i dont have coverage or money to get it looked at right now and I'm assuming thats why my jaw hirts, the odd time i get some discomfort in my tongue too.
Avatar m tn As per my previous post I had a throat infection and couple of skin infections for which my doc prescribed week course of erythromycin, seemed to clear the throat but then within days it was back 10 times worse accompanied by singular swollen pea sized node under left armpit and neck felt glandy, doctor has put me on another week course of erythromycin, 2 days in my throat still hurts like hell and myblegs fell like ive ran a marathon, also keep getting pains in armpits and left breast area (s
Avatar m tn So last Monday I found out I had a throat inflection , as days started to pass I've noticed my gums somewhat red and really hard for me to chew because of the pain. About Saturday morning my throat started to feel fine but my gums are still in pain. They're red, swollen, and whitish canker sores on them , any idea on what it can be or what's going on?
Avatar m tn 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. Later in the afternoon I noticed a rash forming in my upper groin area, and at that point I decided I should probably return to an office for reevaluation.
Avatar n tn Also, 4 weeks after the incidient i developed a sore throat which 5 weeks on has developed into an itchy throat with lumps spreading around the inside of my mouth towards the back of my throat. They are not painful but are itchy. My doc says my throat is red and the spots are ulcers. But I thought ulcers were painful and not itchy. Is this a symptom of gonnarea, chlymadia or warts in my mouth.
Avatar m tn Went to the county STD clinic and told them of my sore throat. It on only on the right side and feels like it is more under my tongue. Asked if I could get swabbed for gonorrhea. She said it doesn't look like it and swabbed me for strepp. I got and HIV and std test have to wait 10 days for results. Now I made an appointment with an ENT but have to wait til the 9th. I think the medical profession is getting really dumbed down. Now I have to sweat this for 10 days.

Avatar m tn All those times that I got sick I wanted it to last for weeks just so I would miss school or work and now that I need to get better it seems to be lasting ages. I got my first sore throat monday evening, and tuesday morning I went doctors and got diagnosed with upper respiratory infection and prescribed me with medicines. Symptoms included runny and blocked nose, fatigue, cough and sore throat. It is currently day 5and I just have a blocked nose and a bit of a cough.
Avatar n tn Four days later I still have a soar throat, and have a thin white coating on my tongue. My throat feels swollen, and my nose is only congested in the morning. I had minor chills and a headache. I'm FREAKING out and think I have gonorrhea in my throat, PLEASE HELP, i'm terrified. I can't get tested because my parents would freak and we don't have money for anti-biotics..PLEASE tell me its not gonorrhea!
Avatar f tn 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? what could be the possible cuases? can having sex first maybe be cuaseing this? is there something we r doing wrong.. or? im not sure what to ask or how to get information on this.
Avatar n tn When performing oral sex on my girlfriend I seem to quickly develop a sore throat, which lasts for a few days to a week. 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.
Avatar m tn Hi. I was sick with a sore throat and green phlegmn (probably sinus) and was put on augmentin antibiotics. 24 hours before my antibiotic course was over, I noticed irritation and itching next to my clitoral area, in lips of labia. It developed into a swollen lump then developed a head; drained and is shrinking. Now, 72 hours after my antibiotic, I have white patches on my throat. I notice irritation down there in a new spot with itching and redness. I expect a lump to form.
Avatar m tn ve read that symptoms of a HSV infection could be a sore throat/flu-like symptoms/fever. Approximately over a month ago I had a sexual encounter where I gave and recieved unprotected oral and protected vaginal. Two days later, I came down with a pretty bad case of strep throat. It hurt to swallow and I had a really bad fever where I didn't even want to leave my bed. It was not accompanied by any itching or lesions.The strep throat was confirmed through a rapid test and culture.
Avatar m tn hi,relax,it is throat infection may be associated with ulcerations.A course of antibiotic along with antiseptic gargles and pain killers will help.May be some local anesthetic spray would be helpful. Please consult ENT sugeon to rule out other possibities. Relax and take care!
