Avatar f tn Hello, I went swimming a early june and few days after that my ears started to hurt real bad and it gave me terrible headaches coming and going. Then I developed strep throat week later, got rid of it. I been putting Similasan earache releif it helped a little. And now its september 2, my ears don't hurt as bad but I think I lost some of my hearing, I can't hear like I use to. Now I'm having a problem with my left eye and left nostril watering.
Avatar n tn with Sinus/allergy problems. He tested me for strep, it was positive, and gave me med for the strep throat. The conditions have gotten worse and now my ear has started to hurt. While blowing my nose i got a real sharp pain in my right ear and now a little brownish disharge is comming out of my ear and it is continuing to hurt. it feels like there is water or some sort of liquid in it and all noises are muffled and there is a mild pain in my ear.
Avatar m tn After a bout of Strep and mono (though I will add that the sore throat was NOT severe in either cases oddly enough, I was swallowing fine and with relatively no pain, just slight irritation), I had noticed my throat seemed very "beat up" per se. Here is a current image of my mouth: http://i27.tinypic.com/2r5wyac.jpg Notice the seemingly cluster of bumps on the back wall, and overall "redness?" It's weird to me since I have absolutely NO pain, discomfort, or anything.
Avatar n tn I know strep and allergies are definitely two different things, but it could be that if he has an allergy issue, his nasal passages and throat get irritated from that and then an infection occurs - the strep throat. This past winter I, myself, got strep throat twice and pneumonia once - the first bout of strep actually landed me in the hospital for 4 days.
533880 tn?1237612452 Is this the usually pattern of strep throat. Why am I having so many problem with this? I have kept a sore throat for the last two months...at first I thought I had strep now but the white patches went away. I have been having allergy problems...my head is stuffy my eyes drain with sticky goo, and I have a congestion in my nasal cavity. Someone please help me understand what is going on....Could allergies be causing all of these problems?
Avatar m tn Hi, about 6 weeks ago I was diagnosed with strep throat which I use to get a lot as a kid, because I have very big tonsils. I took the antibiotics and everything, 2 weeks later I have a very infected lymphnode on the right side of my throat. I couldn't swallow or eat for 2 days and the pain was terrible. I got antibiotics, steroids, and another stronger antibiotic.

Avatar n tn I just got over the flu of ten days. I now have burning in the back of my throat, or anterior of the neck. Is this strep throat? I've checked my throat and its not red, and I have no fever. what could it be?
Avatar f tn Do you see any pus (white spots in the back of the throat or where the injury occurred? It does sound like you may have gotten strep throat or another bacterial infection. It may not have been from the incident but could be a combination of that, which broke the skin, and getting exposed to the bacteria. It would be best to get a throat swab for strep throat. It is a rapid test the doctor can do in the office. Then you can be treated properly.
Avatar f tn In the last week I have had throat problems, and it feels like quarter sized sores or something in the lower part of my throat..Every time I swallow it hurts. Two weeks ago, I had strep throat and the dr. prescribed Amoxil twice a day and I felt much better. This feels nothing like the strep throat I had before, and it's constant. Can you give me an idea as to what it might be and which type of doctor I should make an appointment with if necessary? Thank You..
503418 tn?1231098736 Well, pus indicates an infection, and if serious there should be a fever. If the condition is strep throat (tonsillitis), that is a specific type of infection caused by the streptococcus bacteria. Strep tonsillitis can cause secondary damage to the heart valves (rheumatic fever) and kidneys (glomerulonephritis).
Avatar n tn After positively testing her throat for strep her doctor put her on Clandemycin. She seems to be strep-free for 4 months. However, last week her facial rash returned but not as severe as before. She has the dry, bumpy, itchy skin on her face but with the heat/inflamation. I can't help but think there should be something more to her condition than either just a reaction to strep throat or a form of eczema. What can I do for her?
528849 tn?1212712557 It could be any of the usual infections that cause strep. It is rare but possible to get a throat infection from performing oral sex. Go to the doctor and tell them you have a sore throat.
Avatar f tn What you are describing sounds more like strep throat. Do you have a fever? Strep throat can be quite painful when swallowing and cause a general feeling of malaise, with whitish "dots" appearing in the back of your throat. If left untreated, strep throat can lead to other more serious complications. You should seek medical attention.
Avatar m tn I also have a fever. I saw a doctor. They took a throat swab and results came back that I have strep throat. I am about to be treated with penicillin. I just began to wonder now if I could have contracted gonorrhea or chlamydia in the throat. Would the positive strep throat culture be an indicator of the chlamydia or gonorrhea bacteria; would the lab know the difference?
Avatar f tn It could be strep throat or possibly an abscess. If you go to a neighborhood clinic they usually have a sliding fee of some type so how much you pay is based on your income. Also depending on where you live they have clinic type offices at some Target stores and CVS pharmacies. To help alleviate the pain you can take acetaminophen or ibuprofen and gargle with warm salt water.
Avatar m tn You could have strep throat, which needs to be cultured for a certain diagnosis. Antibiotics are important for strep or you can get complications. If you aren't allergic to penicillin, try to get something like amoxicillin and not Cipro because Cipro can cause problems for many people - it is very strong.
Avatar n tn Finally, after getting tired of having them, I went to the doctor where he found that I had strep throat. I am currently still undergoing some tests, but am almost certain the strep is the reason for the pvc's. Anyone had similar situations? Kit - I find that my PVCs can get worse whenever there's any kind of stress on my body, as is the case when it's fighting an infection like a sore throat.
Avatar n tn A couple months ago I noticed pain when swallowing on the right side of my throat. I took a flashlight and saw that my right tonsil was inflamed and covered with white specks. I went to my general physician...she ruled out strep throat. She gave me a 10-day antibiotic...she wasn't quite sure what the problem was. I went through the antibiotic and saw no improvement. That was about a month ago. Recently, it looks as if the left tonsil is also becoming inflamed/swollen.
