Tooth infection sore throat

Common Questions and Answers about Tooth infection sore throat


Avatar f tn In early March he developed a fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph nodes. He saw a doctor and strep throat and mono were ruled out as a cause. The doctor prescribed Amoxicillin 3 times a day for 10 days. He felt fine after a couple of days and all was well. But about two weeks later the same symptoms returned (w/ a fever of 101.6) and the doctors ruled out strep and mono once again and put him on the same medication regimen. Could his symptoms possibly stem from a tooth abscess??
Avatar m tn Does a sore throat and mild stuffed nose 5 weeks past exposure sound like a symptom of hiv
Avatar f tn Hi there, Though I can confirm the cause only after an evaluation but it is possible that infected tooth can lead to sore throat. Whenever there is a cavity or tooth decay the food gets lodged in the tooth. The bacteria feed on the rotted foodstuff and eventually enter the Eustachian tube through the infected tooth. The Eustachian tube connects the throat, teeth; ears, eyes and head, infection that enters via the tooth can migrate or settle at one or more of these points causing pain.
Avatar f tn I have had a sometimes severe sore throat for over a month. Had a scope put down my throat and the doctor says everything is growths, nodules, infection, etc. He suggested that maybe I had a virus and to come back in 6 weeks if the pain was still there and then he would repeat the procedure to see if there was a change. The pain does lessen sometimes but then comes back with a vengence. Mostly it is on the right side and, of course, the ears are also involved.
Avatar f tn Called Oral Surg -said it sounds like throat and tooth infection are 2 seperate issues - but I do not think so - I do not have any cold symp, only the Left Side throat is sore, within inch of infected gum. Rx'd Augmentin & Diflucan. Today is 3rd day on Augmentin, starting to work - still sore, red.
Avatar m tn call the dentist and let him/her know you have a sore throat. the antibiotics will not make it worse, may even make it better. I just had my abscessed wisdom tooth pulled 2 weeks ago and was in the middle of taking the antibiotics, hadnt finished them yet. he may give you another rx for them or you may have to see your general practitioner. But definitely call them and give them a heads up!
Avatar m tn I have a bad tooth on the upper left last tooth on having throat swelling and the whole nine. I would like to compair notes. .
Avatar f tn It started with a broken tooth that got sore, then the gums, then my cheeks and tongue swelled up nd inside of mt lips, I developed a white sore on the end of my tongue and it split open from top to underneath. Really bad headaches nd now my throat is sore and my lungs are tight. I gargle and brush with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, which keeps it somewhat under control. What do you thinK? O, and I am extremely fatigued. I almost forgot to mention that I have red spots on my palate.
Avatar m tn Probably a viral infection. I recently had a hiv fear although i used protection. My sixth week(actually five weeks, 6 days 12 hours to be precise) elissa fourth gen test came out negative. I'm a little sure that it can't be because of hiv. I have a wisdom tooth on my left side that is causing a tooth to decay. I got dental abscess about a month back. I didn't treat the dental abscess. This sore throat is pretty annoying.
Avatar n tn The answer to the first question is yes. You can have an infection under the apex of a tooth without any symtoms. I would certainly investigate any possibility of any dental infection that may be draining into a submaxillary node.
Avatar m tn Total discomfort in throat. No sore throat.. Pls what could be the cause.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have had a sore throat for over 3 weeks, the pain not really bad but annoying, my tonsil on left side has been swollen from time to time, especially in morning when I wake up, I have noticed a small spot with a white halo around it at the back of my throat on the side of my mouth that has been sore, should I be concerned about this? Oral cancer? Or possible infection?
Avatar n tn And also I was on antibiotics for a staph infection in my throat a couple weeks ago. could it be thrush?
Avatar f tn This is happening to me. I also had my right wisdom tooth removed, now my throat is sore and my right ear hurts. It is really painful, I am wondering what I should do?
Avatar m tn Sore throat,fatigue, and sweats, then a few days later sore throat goes away and throat feels swollen while urinating excessively, multicolored stool. What if semen was in my mouth and tooth infection? Still no Risk?
Avatar f tn Strep is not something you should mess with and if you have had a history of strep throat then get it checked out. It could just be toncillitis but better to be safe than sorry. Incidentally, I had a sore throat growing up more often than I didn't and finally had my toncils out when I was 21. Only occasionally do I get a throat infection. Nothing like it used to be. Just something to think about.
Avatar m tn I woke up this morning with what I guess I would call a sore throat, except it doesn't feel like the same kind oof sore throat I usually get with colds. It only hurts when I swallow and feels like its closer to the back of my mouth, possibly before the tonsils, than my throat. The pain is also only on the left side. From what I can tell I don't have any swelling in my neck or anything. This is yet another of odd mouth symptoms that I have had in the last few weeks.
Avatar n tn Neck lymph nodes can be the result of tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer, fungal infection, other cancers like lymphoma etc. If you had flu like symptoms initially then it could be due to infectious mononucleosis too. In your case in all probability it is the outer ear infection.
Avatar m tn Feverish feeling at about 3 weeks after exposure I mean it would be great to know if these symptoms can be associated with primary or recurrent outbreak by jotting down when does sore throat and fever appear in primary infection if the blister starts appearing 3 days post exposure. Just, being able to figure out if this was a primary or recurrent infection will help me a lot in further decision making. Are there any pointers??
1678096 tn?1304539087 Doctor, I've suffered with depression and anxiety for years. Although, just recently, I've started Prozac (still too early to tell of my progress). However, the past year, I've also picked up another wonder mental disorder - Hypochondria (makes sense, doesn't it?). It started with a bad bruise and migraines combined with Depersonalization. Eventually, the migraines stopped and thankfully, the Depersonalization went away after a few weeks.
Avatar m tn I had swollen gums(left) because of wisdom tooth before 4 mmonths the infection spread to throat and was treated by antibiotics my dentist said my wisdom tooth were crooked and needed removal which i have not done yet. One month after that i had sore throat again. I have ear pressure in the right ear i cant pop my ear open completely. Also sometimes i get mild pain in right ear and weird jaw feelings after waking up when i sleep on the right side of my body.
Avatar n tn A few days ago (one week from dental appointment for teeth extraction) I had to take her to the doctors for a sore throat (very painfull and red) She was told she had a Viral Infection that could last for a while and really nothing they could do for her. Because her throat was really raw, they gave her 800mg Motrin for the pain and Amox. even though they said it most likely would not help much due to the fact that it was not a throat infection. My question is this...

Avatar m tn I have 3 mercury/silver tooth fillings, which could be increasing toxicity levels inside my throat. They are rather small, though. Something else, probably very important, I get runny nose right after waking up and for the following 2-3 hs in very (90%+) humid places. I used to live in such a place and it ended up being absolutely unbearable, I reckon my mouth/nose/ear tissues could have gotten chronically sensitive bc of that.
Avatar f tn and infection, and I noticed I had a small sore were my wisdom tooth used to be. Over three days the infection has gotten much worse. It's a constant ache in my jaw, and is very painful to open my mouth or chew. the area is hot, very swollen, and tastes kinda like blood. It's getting a little hard to eat because everything on that side of my mouth hurts as well, tongue, throat ect.
Avatar m tn White patches are common in many throat infections. If you have sore throat and tonsillitis it may have contributed to it. In response to the infection the body produces soft white debris which collects in the tiny indentations in the tonsils called crypts. It could be due to sexually transmitted diseases also. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and ask your son to gargle.
