Common Questions and Answers about Viral throat infection remedies


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 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 am a hepatitis B patient currently taking the HIV anti-viral drug Truvada. My hep B is very controlled right now and its viral loads undetectable. I was wondering if my situation suggest a possible infection and whether Truvada can possibly influence the symptoms somehow.
Avatar f tn t taken any swabs (especially after 2 rounds of antibiotics) I would suggest one to them/see another doctor. Who knows, maybe you have a viral infection instead of bacterial; maybe the bacteria you are infected with is antibiotic resistant. Either way, hard to tell, and those are the only things I can suggest.. Maybe you should investigate some natural health remedies if you are worn out from medical doctors. Look online and see what remedies/treatments there are for sinus problems.

Avatar n tn viral infection? posted by CCF neuro MD MM on April 02, 1999 at 14:56:29: Hi, I am trying to find out if I should be alarmed or not. I was diagnosed by a doctor as having an upper respiratory infection, although I don't agree with the diagnosis. A week before I started feeling ill, I got something like a rash on my chest. I am going to see a dermatologist today about it. When I started feeling ill, I was having muscle and slight joint aches and muscle burning.

Avatar m tn Besides this Group B Streptococcus, mycoplasma, neisseria and cornybacterium are known to cause throat infections. Other known pathogens causing infections of the throat are viral and yeast (candida). The reason for elaborating about these pathogens is that the tests done and the therapy initiated vary for the listed pathogens. To begin with a throat swab is taken to see for streptococcus.

Lung infections can result min death. When you cough up the sputem examine it to determine the color. If it is yellowish or greenish the liklihood is the problem is bacterial. Expectorants do not raise blood pressure significantly, and it is a matter of risk benefit.
Avatar n tn I am still trying to recover from viral infection. I thought that it was sinus infection. I was given Allegra but havent used it yet. Instead, I am using a nasal spray and just trying to do old fashioned remedies: humidifier, running hot showers to losen phlem. I have been sick for 6+ weeks now. Still feel terrible.
Avatar n tn I have bronchitis. Since I have had this for a month (including a viral upper respiratory infection with wheezing in my chest), my doctor put me on Methylprednisolone 4mg., an Ibuterol inhaler, Mucinex DM and Tussionex Suspension. My doctor said the bronchitis is probably secondar to the infection. I have been sleeping with a heating pad on my chest at night also, and it seems to help. Is it okay to do this? Thank you.
Avatar n tn Within hours I get sinus blocking then lots of green goobers from my throat the next day and if unlucky cold like symptoms for a day or three before it clears up, I jut take throat sweets and flu remedies. Having been together for many months I choose to avoid giving oral pleasure. Yes I know I should discuss it but in doing so I'd like to know what we should do next, is it the doctors, is it the pharmacy or is it a clinic?
Avatar m tn Thanks! But today I'm feeling itchy throat. Is this somehow related to it? Is it possible to have symptoms this late? Do I need to get tested for it?
Avatar f tn Hi all, 8 days ago I came down with a cold that turned into a sinus infection. Went to see the doctor today to see if it was viral or bacterial. Turns out it's viral, which means it's has to run its course. I'm using natural remedies to alleviate this terrible congestion, including neti pot, saline spray, breathe right strips, vicks vapor rub, and hot showers. A friend of mine told me to try boiling some Apple Cider Vinegar and inhaling the fumes to open yet sinuses.
Avatar f tn Hi, the symptoms described could be due to an infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain.
Avatar f tn I read somewhere that they can be a sign of infection spreading to the head. I have had a viral infection for 6 months now and my health has worsened since. I have bumps on throat and under tongue. Throat is constantly irritated. My left tonsil has been swollen for 6 months. I am frequently constipated and i get fevers once in a while. I'm scared my infection may be getting worse.
Avatar n tn By monday evening I had congestion and a cough with a sore throat. By Wednesday morning my sore throat had become so bad that couldn't sleep Tuesday night and decided to go to the doctor. At the doctor I mentioned my ear was hurting as well and associated it to the sore throat. She looked into my ears and told me she say red and bulging. Also she did a strep culture and sent to the lab. She treated me with a 10 day x2 a day 875mg dosage of Amoxicillin for an ear infection and strep.

Avatar m tn The white patches have a cottage cheese appearance. They can occur as a consequence to throat infection or sometimes steroid inhalers are known to promote their growth. You need to consult your doctor for proper assessment. In the meantime you can try warm salt water gargles and betadine mouth washes. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
