Throat ulcers viral infection

Common Questions and Answers about Throat ulcers viral infection


Avatar m tn To cut the long story short you could be having a bacteria/viral infection. I would advise you to take throat culture and take these medications and finish the course. In addition you could take OTC multivitamins. Take plenty of warm oral fluids and lots of rest. For further relief from your symptoms you could do warm salt water gargles and steam inhalations. Please ensure to do this prior to your meals. Hope this helped and Do Take Care!

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 This sounds like garden variety viral pharyngitis (sore throat). If in the preceding 1-2 weeks you had oral sex with someone with genital herpes, or kissed someone with oral herpes, it is conceivable that this is the problem. But far less likely than a standard cold virus. Initial oral herpes usually causes over ulcers (open sores), and not only in the throat but in the mouth and often on the lips. But see a doctor if you remain concerned.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had a bacterial throat infection: including sore throat, fever, headache and body aches.....This was before x-mas, I was given Augmentin, which pretty much cleared it up, except my cough and congestion.... After x-mas The cough got worse and fevers, tongue ulcers and head and body aches came again, my Dr. said this time it's viral, so it would have run its coarse, it's been almost a month and still hasn't cleared up at all.
Avatar n tn I have had pain in my abdomen below my ribs on the left side for about 3 to 4 weeks. In the last week, I have additionally had burning in my throat and stomach. I had an abdominal sonogram and there was no abnormality. My doctor is prescribing me Prilosec. Do you think further testing is needed? Upper GI? Also, I have developed blisters/sores on my tongue and throat. My doctor has not seen these yet, but I told him about them. He thinks they are viral. What do you think?
1125093 tn?1260365148 Hi, Thank you very much for your post the other day. It really helped and I appreciate the time you spent replying. I went to the ENT yesterday and he said he couldn't see any real infection or ulcers, so put the camera up my nose down my throat etc. He said everything looked ok and he couldn't see any problems, so thinks it was just a viral infection that took/is taking time to go away.
Avatar m tn Do my symptoms sound like that of a typical viral infection?
Avatar m tn Between may and June I developed fluctuating body temperatures, chronic sore throat (even to the point of ulcers in my mouth), blocked sinuses and still the remaining breathlessness and tickly cough. I also started to develop earache. Visited a pulmonologist who gave me a spirometery test and said that I Do not have asthma. Was then told that the doctor doesn't like to label people but he thinks its 'probably' post viral fatigue syndrome.
Avatar m tn Hi My situation is as follows : -I had protected vaginal and brief unprotected insertive oral intercourse with a female sex worker. I have never suffered from other STDs before as I am in a monogamous relationship and this was my first sexual encounter with someone other than my wife. -2 days after I got a (single) throat ulcer (confirmed by doctor) and 5 days after I was extremely tired and slept for almost 2 days, sweating a lot.
Avatar n tn I could feel like a little lump under my throat when I touch it. I also failed to mention that I also had a sore throat(lasting 15 minutes), which comes and goes during this ill period. I also had a recurring soar throat during the year... maybe twice which seemed to only last about twenty minutes. Recently, I had a lot of clear white mucos in my throat that may have lasted a good month or month and a half. I appreciate your help in answering other people's questions as well as mine.
Avatar m tn The doctor said that swollen gums may be caused my any viral infection as the body fights off the infection. It sounds like I have no reason to be concerned?
Avatar m tn Part of the illness included an infection in the throat. The infection was cleared up with antibiotics but i was still very tired for a few weeks. Could this have been acute infection? Do people ever get sore throat that clear up with antibiotics during the window period? I know that antibiotics don't help viral infections but I wonder if it could have been an opportunistic infection. Is it common to have opportunistic throat infections during the acute phase?
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.
Avatar f tn My guess is, that unless a swab test was taken from your throat that was positive for HSV 1, your doctor was covering all the possible diagnoses for ulcers in the throat and that would have to include HSV. Does your doctor know that you tested negative for HSV 1 repeatedly? Do you know if you had a swab test from the ulcers and what the result was?
Avatar m tn i read some where that gargling salt water wud ease the throat pain but it made it even worse .. has any one heard of pple getting sore throat and throat ulcers as an ars symptom ?? or could it be some other oral std ( we engaged in deep kissing for about 30 minutes and she usually gives unprotected bj to all her other clients ..
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 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 n tn Your symptoms are most consistent with a viral infection. If you are still experiencing symptoms then you should seek a consultation with an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon or dentist who specializes in Oral Medicine.
