Throat ulcers symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Throat ulcers symptoms


Avatar f tn Hi, I'm new here, apologies if this is in the wrong place or i've not got it right. Basically my sister has been ill for years, she's seen hundreds of Doctors and nothing has helped. It's making her miserable and she's desperate. The problem is that she permanently has a mouth and tongue covered in ulcers. It causes a lot of pain, she can't eat properly and is tired all the time. She has also had other symptoms at times including dizzyness, palpitations, depression.
Avatar f tn I'm currently suffering from throat ulcers that became visible some point over past twenty four hours (I've been in bed all day and didn't have a chance to check up on my throat until now), though I've had problems with my throat since yesterday morning that gradually became worse throughout the day. I originally thought it was due to me talking too much as I was dictating my essay, but as it got worse overnight where I did no talking, I decided to look into it more.
Avatar m tn We don't talk about symptoms because lack of or symptoms will not tell you anything about HIV. A test now will give you a good indication, but at 3 months it is conclusive. Use condoms.
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 and as you noted yourself, the lymph node enlargements in ARS usually are not so localized. However, severe sore throat plus oral ulcers with regional lymph node inflammation suggest you may have acquired oral herpes during the sexual encounter -- i.e. HSV-1 by kissing or, less likely, HSV-2 if your exposure included cunnilingus. Although oral ulcers indeed are sometimes reported in conjunction with ARS, they are less frequent than most other ARS symptoms.
Avatar m tn Dr says these spots are nonspecific and could be stress/anxiety which I have very much been in about this. (also said that about ulcers and throat). What do you think about these symptoms? Could it be seroconversion? On day 25 I took tests for all STDs and HIV. They were all negative. I also took a HIV PCR test which I will have results in a few days. However I was told my Eliza test was probably redundant as I need to wait more time. How relaible will my PCR test at 25 days be?
Avatar n tn about a week and a half after i got over it i developed a sore throat and when i woke up i had several ulcers on various spots in my mouth (inner lip, throat, and tonsil) ever since i got sick and i noticed swollen lymph nodes under my right arm and tonight i was feeling nauseas and felt like i was going to vomit although sitting down made that feeling go away. i've been worried i might have gotten it from her.
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 Does the Combivir point to any of these symptoms? I realize the light sore throat and neck pain are probably unrelated. Do any of these point to HIV seroconversion? Would the Combivir lessen the side effects of seroconversion? Or is it an "all or nothing" type thing, where I would be getting full-blown symptoms of the PEP was not working? If I finish the treatment of Combivir and my liver/kidney function fine, are there any longterm implications of the 28-day course of the drug?
Avatar f tn 3 months now after high risk exposure, fatique,sore throat,night sweats,mouth ulcers,severe headache,body itching, which have been persistent done the hiv test Pcr test at 6 weeks negative Elisa 10 weeks negative 12 weeks Rapid test negative Hepatitis negative I feel very sick and all this sickness and symptoms lead to Hiv and undetected. Have anyone experience being sick and test done which changed after 3 months of the exposure.
Avatar f tn Hey, I have read a lot on you. Am African 23 yrs of age. 17 days ago I stupidly engaged in unprotected sex with my first love, like two rounds n some fingering. She is of a risk taker n a little promiscuous, after my symptoms started, she re assured me that she was clean. However I couldn't trust that since she could have just contracted it and not noticed. My symptoms started wen I was from my grandpas place, I thought its weather and travelling effects. 1.
Avatar n tn I had protected vaginal sex and I received unprotected oral sex 11 months ago from a CSW. I also kissed the girl deeply. I tested for HIV after 3 months and the result was negative. However, I'm facing swollen gums, Aphthous Ulcers & white tongue problem severely. I'm also facing discomfort at throat. I've seen doctors for swollen gum & discomfort at throat and I have taken a teeth scaling. But still I'm facing those problems for the last 6 - 7 months.
Avatar n tn GERD can also cause a sore throat, ulcers in mouth, redness in throat and a post nasal drip (something draining at the back of throat). Please discuss these possibilities at the doctor’s tomorrow. Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn then 2 days later i developed 4 small ulcers at the back end of the roof of my mouth just before the throat. It not that painful and 2 of the ulcers have already cleared up... I have never had sores on my lips and have been vulnerable to apthic ulcers (usually on my cheeks, inner lips or tongue) ever since i was a child... but i usually get them one at a time... i have never got 4 small ones together like this time... I dont have a cold or runny nose...
Avatar f tn In October of 2005, I had a "severely abnormal" type of small mole removed from my shoulder in a hospital. A few days later (a week or less), I started getting an ulcer or blister (I wasn't sure) on my throat. I thought I was getting sick. It was strange though because I came down with flu-like symptoms, but not till a few days after that. I went out with my current boyfriend for the first time during this time. I started getting a round blister on my throat.
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.
769119 tn?1235025955 I visited doctors many times and recived my types of medications, but nothing could cure my mouth ulcer, it begains with one small white urlcer with lots of pain in all of my mouth and in few days it reaches to 4 or 5 in all ereas of my mouth even sometimes this goes deep to my throat and some times when this get very sever this associated with fever.
Avatar f tn After 2 weeks from exposure, i had runny nose and mouth and throat ulcers. The runny nose have gone except the mouth and throat ulcers and thus feeling a sore throat. I am really worried. Should the ulcers and sore throat be combined with a rash or fever to be a symptom of hiv?? When can i take a typical antobody test the earliest time after exposure??
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 I had unprotected sex around early January and a few weeks later developed a mouth ulcer. I have never had a mouth ulcer before and was wondering if this could be a sign of an acute HIV infection. I dont' have any of the other fever, rashes, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes...etc. does anyone have any suggestions. It's not three months yet so I can't get tested.
Avatar m tn The Strep is gone now just some ulcers left on the back of my throat. Still taking the Amoxicillin as per my doctors orders. My gums are still tender. I used to be able to brush em then floss with no pain but now when I brush It hurts and flossing is out of the question.
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. Consult your primary care physician who will do blood tests and take a throat swab to determine the cause and prescribe appropriate medications.
Avatar m tn i saw it takes atleast 10-14 days or does it occur as early as 8 days and what are these throat ulcers ??
