throat

Avatar f tn Did your doc even bother to do a strep test or anything? Strep throat can also cause ulcers in the throat and mouth and strep is definitely something that neeeds to be treated with antibiotics.
Avatar m tn Seen my doctor and he put me on Amoxicillin. My strep cleared up for the most part (the white crap all over my throat). Throat is still sore and have ulcers in a few places around my mouth. Not to worried about that, what does worry me is now my gums are killing me. I cannot even tough them with a brush. No blood as of yet from them. Is this the last of the infection retreating?
Avatar n tn Probably. An ulcer is a raw spot. If you got a bacterial infection and it was bad enough, you could get raw spots from it. I got strep throat once and it gave me ulcers in my throat, and it sure wasn't from sex.
Avatar n tn On Feb 1 I developed a severe red scratchy throat, and I still had several mouth ulcers. I took Augmentin 500 3x/day for 10days. After the 10days I still had a sore throat that feels like an ulcer down my throat, and I also still had about 10 mouth ulcers as well as swollen gums. I went to my Internal MD and he put me on Medrol dose pack and Levaquin. This initially helped w/ the mouth ulcers but the one down my throat got much worse. I was given a Celestone inj and put on Orapred.
Avatar n tn This last year, however, 3 times in the last 5 months, I have started out with major oral ulcers (2-3) and 3 days later, I start wheezing and having swelling in my tracheal area. This always follows with sore throat, lymph node enlargement and sometimes strep throat. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn m coming down with strep throat again until I look and see the ulcers. They are giving me really bad headaches and earaches, and this time around my voice has been really strained (don't know if the voice strain is related, but it rarely happens to me). What is this?! This is like the 80th time this is happening and it's driving me mad.
Avatar n tn Also taking Pepsid. Throat neg for strep and mouth ulcers neg for Herpes. This helped for about 3 days but then the pain has come back. I have also gotten a few more ulcers to my tongue and some of my gums are swollen. I have lost 9 pounds since the start of this b/c of the pain to eat. Another symptom that I am thinking is related is that I have gotten a severe area of inflamation around my anus. Does hemorrhoids cause this?? Labs for ANA,B12,CBC,BMP,LFTs were all normal. CRP was 3.
Avatar n tn You need to stop thinking the worst and go and be seen and get properly evaluated. You need tested for strep throat for starters and discuss with your provider if it's worthwhile getting a viral culture of the throat too.
Avatar f tn 12 days later I see my throat is inflamed. Doc said negative for strep. Waiting on my herpes simplex throat culture to come back. Sometimes I get a headache. But no fever. Could this be throat herpes or hiv ? I’m really worried. I keep drinking liquids and taking cough drops to help but the inflammation is still there and throat dryness. It’s not really sore. And it doesn’t hurt. Since I’m negative for strep is it possible this is hiv or hsv 1 in my throat ?
Avatar n tn I caved and saw my family physician about the throat this day as well. She prescribed me a ten day strep medication. The quick strep came back negative, I'm waiting on the results for the culture. My cheeks are very red and my ears ache but I'm not sure if that's relevant to anything.

Avatar m tn i was a bit sceptical, he offered to do a strep throat test but he didnt think it was strep throat as my throat is fine, so we didnt do the test. However over the last 3 days i have developed red areas on the inside of my lips and also above my upper teeth, not red around my teeth but further up. its also quite inflamed. i still have the sores at the back of my throat but my toncit area is now also red. im worried of gingervitis (sorry abou that spelling!
Avatar n tn 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. Also, I phlegmed in my 20 month year old nephews mouth by accident and it came from the back of my throat directly into his mouth. What are the chances of giving him gonnareah and chlymadia this way?
Avatar n tn For the past year or so i have had this small lump in the right side of my throat, almost where my lymphnodes are. I had never had strep throat until about 2 years ago, and i had it twice in that one year really bad. The lump is not painful in any way, the only way i would ever know it was there is if i rub my hand over that area, its not even visibly noticible. I went to the doctor about it and he told me that i had a swollen salivary gland.
Avatar m tn First rule out infectious causes, have blood tests done to rule out HIV and strep throat infection. Also, a throat swab may help. Chronic tonsillar enlargement can be due to the tonsils harboring infection. This is more so as the lymph nodes are also enlarged. If it is causing recurring symptoms, this is an indication for tonsillectomy. But sometimes the enlargement could also be due to lymphoma of the tonsils. Discuss these options with your consulting doctor.
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed strep throat and started taking medicines but after 4 days, my fever went up to 105-106 range. Test results showed no strep throat, flu, swine etc. I rushed to emergency and they diagnosed me for Pharynogontonsillitis. For a week before I went to emergency I barely could swallow anything. I grew weak and they gave me Glucose by drip and also Decadron. Next day onwards (after abt 10 days) I started feeling better. Fever was going away and so were ulcers.
245504 tn?1224099316 Because there are no ulcers at all. Would the ulcers present with the sore throat. Thank you so much for your response. Its very comforting.
Avatar n tn A week after the fatigue I developed a terrible neck stiffness and pain along with a sore throat. No fever. No rash. No ulcers that I could see. No vomiting or diarrhea. I am just now starting to feel better. The neck pain, sore throat, and fatigue were the worse. Tested for mono and strep both negative. I will test at 6 weeks and 12 but for now does that seem like ARS?
Avatar f tn His throat will be very red, and sometimes he has ulcers in his throat as well. His doctor says that it probably starts with a viral infection and then causes his throat to become very infected. The doctor also says that he could be picking up bacteria from his hands. Toddlers tend to put their hands in their mouths alot ( and my son ***** his thumb when he is sleepy).I wash his hands often but he still gets these throat infections.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am a healthy, active 19 year old. I suffered with multiple viral infections of the throat throughout last year. I finally had a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. Returning back to school as a sophomore, I am sick once again. I have had fevers for five days now, difficulty breathing, severe sore throat with ulcers, and swolen shut nasal passages. The worst part of this illness is how painful the throat it along with a little laryngitis.
Avatar m tn strep A is not uncommon at all. typically it causes strep throat but it can cause skin infections. I assume they gave you antibiotics for it?
Avatar n tn Fever swelling tongue, gums, roof of mounth, fever 100-101.3, sore throat, canker sores on tongue, roof of mouth just returned from Europe 5 days ago. What could this be? Took a strep test at quick clinic/neg.
Avatar n tn who then swabbed the areas, and sent her to the lab for bloodwork and strep and mono testing. the bloodwork came back ok. the strep and mono were also negative. we are still waiting for the swabbed cultures to come back. can anyone please describe what their ulcers look like? my daughters are yellow and ***** looking, and round. they are extremely painful for her. the doctor thought it was from a virus in her body, since she is just getting over the swine flu. the dr.
Avatar f tn Long story short, I was on vacation last week and went horseback riding for the first time Friday. I noticed after, I was so sore and uncomfortable. We flew home Saturday and Sunday i saw small ulcers on my vagina. One on my outer 'lip' and a couple on my perineum. No blisters, just sores. They aren't red or anything. Then I started to feel like I was getting a fever and I noticed my throat had white spots on my tonsils and it's hard to swallow.
Avatar m tn t too sore in the beginning but became extremely sore later on.. It appears like I have strep throat but I don't think that is what I have. My tonsils are swollen and they are covered in white patches but I really don't think It is strep throat because Ive had that many times before and this time seems different.
