Avatar m tn old was seen today for a fever and sore throat complaint. the ped. said she has a throat infection and swollen glands and prescribed meds. she did check other areas of her body for glands (at least that is what i think she was feeling for). about 7 weeks ago she had the same thing (tho the whole family passed around a fever/infection). should we be overly concerned that she has been sick like this twice in two months? what would be the tell tale signs of leukemia or lymphoma in a child?

Avatar f tn It could most probably be tonsillitis and a throat infection. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Infections in the throat cause lymph node enlargement. As, it is subsiding with the infection, it is the most likely cause.
1548905 tn?1303331009 Today, I went to see the doctor, he confirmed the swollen glands. And he also found I have sore throat, I dont feel anything about it. All the swollen glands cannot be seen by appearance. I dont have fever, no diarrhea, no weight loss. I also did the normal blood test, which showed WBC, RBC and all others are good. I am still concered abou HIV infection. I am wondering the risk of being infected by HIV. Meanwhile, if I go to test on Monday, which means only 7 weeks after the exposure.
Avatar n tn t usually cause swollen lymph glands; they are usually a sign of infection or virus. STDs are usually not the cause either. But it's best to get checked out by a doc to determine what your body's trying to fight off.
Avatar m tn The swollen neck glands are secondary to the throat infection. It can go away after the infection is treated. Sometimes, the glands persist to be enlarged even after treatment. Please do give us updates. Good luck.
Avatar n tn My glands are swollen on my neck and my toung tastbuds are different too.
Avatar m tn Doc, Thanks for the prompt response. You mention 4 to 14 days as the time for blisters to appear. Considering I'm only 60 hours into this possible exposure, I'm guessing it's too early to tell, right? I'm just nervous the swollen glands for 48 hours is a sign for things to come. Your response gives me hope, I just want to make sure it's not false hope.
Avatar f tn I feel that the submandibular gland is swollen in your case. The glands are located in and around the mouth and throat. The major salivary glands are called the parotid, submandibular and sublingual glands. Swelling of these glands leads to interference of production and drainage of saliva.It may be due to some obstruction like stone or tumor,inflammation and infection. Secondary infection of salivary glands from adjacent lymph nodes also occurs.
Avatar f tn okay so basically i came down with swollen glands a couple days ago and now i think i have a ear infection. i feel as though my ear have a wall and i cant get rid of it, yet when i yawn they feel like they are going to pop is this bad or not? if it's good how do i yawn without hurting my throat cause while im trying to yawn my throat hurts so bad. i have tried to take all sorts of medication but none seem to be working.
Avatar n tn Over the course of the day my symptoms worsened, I had a severly sore throat, swollen glands, headache, all of my joints ached but mot my muscles and had no fever. The next day I saw my family doctor. He tested for strep, (test was negative). He said my lungs sounded good, no sinus problems and blood pressure was fine. Said he had no idea what it was. I was instructed to take Ibuprofen and chloriseptic spray for thoat to help with pain.
Avatar m tn i had a throat infection a few months ago and got antibiotics and it cleared up but ever since the gland on the right side of my throat has remained swollen and often throughout the day will swell up, is this normal after months of being fine or should i possibly go and get it seen to?
Avatar n tn If all you can feel is like a pen tip then your groin lymphnodes are not swollen and your swollen throat glands are from your throat infection. They say when you have early hiv if any glands will swell it will be all of them, groin, armpit, and throat. I would try not to worry about it too much (I know its hard to do when you have hiv phobia, which I have as well) Go get tested at the right time and put the fear behind you.
Avatar m tn - Swollen armpit glands (not individual nodes, but a general swollen feeling) for 4 weeks, starting 23 days post exposure. Is this the normal timeline for acture HIV symptoms, and is this a common one? - Could this be related to another STD anyones aware of? - Does the Oraquick (gum swab) test provide the 80-85% accuracy at 4 weeks some people seem to be claiming, or does this figure only apply to blood tests?
Avatar f tn I have had a reaccuring throat infection now for the past three months, that will go away with antibiotics only to return a few weeks later. the infection consisits of swollen tonsils and glands in the neck, and some ear pain. No fever or coungh. I have been tested for strep throat and mono, both were negative. And i dont believe it is contagious as none of my faimy of friends have has this problem. the throat infection as accured five times now. .
329165 tn?1515471990 But the only other cause I can think of is a throat infection. This is more applicable considering the glands in the neck. Why not try a long course of antibiotics to clear the infection. Also, since the tonsil grew back and the glands palpable, a biopsy of the glands may also be mandatory. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I had a fever and swollen tonsils a little over a month ago it went away on its on, and a about two weeks ago I went to the doctor because my swollen tonsils came back again but without a fever. She diagnosed me with a sinus infection which made sense at the time. I was on amoxillian for ten days. A few days later my glands in my neck and throat are swollen again. I was wondering if it sounded like I have mono?
Avatar f tn I initially thought it was a knot in my muscle, but now I have swollen neck glands with no sore throat.
Avatar m tn Swollen glands means an infection. You could have the flu, an ear infection, strep throat, it's hard to say. Have you been coughing alot? That could be causing the groin pain. You need to see your Dr. Only he/she can tell what's going on. I hope you feel better soon. Take care.
Avatar n tn so i went to the doctor about 2 week ago and they said i had clamydia so i took the 2 pills they gave me for it but i still have a sore throat and swollen glands and some weird bumps on the back of my throat....i'm not really sure what it could be and i'm very nervous. i've had mono before so i guess it could maybe be returning, but it feels and appears different then it felt with mono. what do i do?
