Rash, sore throat: Herpes is typically painful. Onset of HIV is more likely to have flu-like symptoms, but it does show up with all sorts of symptoms. Please see your doctor or health department for comprehensive STI testing and prevention, just as a general precaution. Your symptoms are probably due to something more common, could be strep. Please have strep test, too.

A 35-year-old member asked:

What is a 6 week old baby take for a stuffy nose and maybe a soar throat?

No meds: Medications have not been proven successful at this age and pediatricians do not recommend any over the counter cough and cold medicines for kids under 6 years. For babies of this age a nasal aspirator can help remove the thick mucus in their noses- the blue bulb syringe can do the same. Humidification may also help. Most importantly keep them hydrated- increase the frequency of breastfeeding.

Okay: Lemon and honey, cayenne pepper laced broths, peppermint extract in warm liquids, a little burbon with honey, perhaps cold liquids, ice creams, sorbets etc, hot lemonade (with a bit of bourbon), and I am sure there are a few herbals that can be used.

See an allergist: The symptoms you describe sound like allergies (except for the rapid heart beat). An allergist can teat you to determine what specific allergy you have. Additionally, you should have your primary care doctor evaluate your racing heart. In fact, this should be dealt with before the allergies are checked.

Herpangina?: A specific virus causes herpangina, a very painful sore throat with blisters on the soft palate. Viscous Lidocaine can be prescribed. If it is a strep throat, antibiotics are indicated.
Dr. Ed Friedlander
Pathology 44 years experience
Sounds like herpangina. I had it a couple of years ago myself; it runs its course but is miserable, your mouth is likely to burn, and Dr. Byrnes' suggestion of viscous lidocaine is still the best.
