Sore throat pain: Try Chloroseptic spray which numbs your throat. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) 1000 mg up to 4 times/day should also help you to feel better. It is most likely viral, as most sore throats and coughs are caused by viruses. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids, get lots of rest, and take Vitamin C to help your body heal itself.

A 34-year-old member asked:

For throat infections, how many days should I take 250 mg of amoxil (amoxicillin)?

Depdns: For most throat infections, which are usually caused by viruses, you shouldn't take antibiotics at all. But if you've been diagnosed with strep throat, you should take Amoxil (amoxicillin) for the amount of time it was prescribed.

A 46-year-old female asked:

My son had his wisdom teeth taken out yesterday. He is now running a 101.1 fever. Can I give his motrin while he is on oxycodone?

You can but caution: Oxycodone, often given in combo with Acetaminophen (tylenol (acetaminophen)) and generally known as Percocet for pain control in situation such as dental extraction here. The tylenol (acetaminophen) should help with fever, but may not be enough (often 325mg). So, you can add another plain tylenol (acetaminophen) 325mg or motrin, but must monitor closely as infection is a concern and follow-up with the dentist is recommended. Good luck.

Bump on side of mouth but don't hurt and looks like a blister and I got big bumps on back of my tongue and throat but none of it hurts?

Mucocele possibly: The bump on the side of your mouth might be a mucocele. It is a clear bump filled with salvia. Caused when the duct to a minor salivary gland gets clogged and the saliva backs up. Most common on the lower lip but can occur elsewhere in the mouth. Ussually resolve on their own. Some times large ones require surgical removal. Bumps on the back of your tongue are probably normal vallate taste buds.

Infection: You have a respiratory/throat infection. Could be viral and could be bacterial best to see a doctor. Other options to help with symptoms include taing elderberry, gargling with salt water or half and half peroxide and mouthwash (do not drink- just gargle) and a warm cloth around neck to hep with lymph glands. Important to rule out strep throat as that will improve with antibiotics.

A 38-year-old female asked:

Sleep disorder: Classically myoclonic jerks are a type of rare seizure disorder, these are rare in adults. And its true that a lot of seizures happen upon waking or going to sleep. You may have a sleep disorder that explains this better. It would be wise to have a sleep study to be sure and there are treatment for these as well.
