Doctor insights on:
4yr old daughter prescribed amoxicillin and steroid Mon. For pharyngitis. Still fever and decreased appetite. Should I take back for re-evaluation.
Pharyngitis: You need to give the medication time to work. Give her lots of fluids and use ibuprofen and acetaminophen alternating. Every four hours give her an alternating dose of Tylenol or Motrin. If she's not better in about 10 days from the start of treatment then take her back in. Don't worry so much about the food as the fluid intake. Hope she feels better soon ...Read more

18 d ago I gave head for 3 sec, started to have fever, candida, pharyngitis. Went to the doctor to treat that, drugs gave me diahrea, but its also a sign of HIV? Also too took tests at d10 was -
Although it is unlikely that you would have picked up HIV from what you have described, it takes about six weeks at the earliest for tests to determine if you picked up HIV from that exposure.
While thrush can be a sign of hiv, I would not expect it to show that quickly after exposure. It is possible that the other person had a yeast infection and you picked that up. ...Read more
I have frequently pharyngitis throat infection and fever due to this which effects works I have deviated septum one nose and LPR wts the cause of it?
Diagnosed with pharyngitis 11 days ago. Fever is gone. Still have heavy cough with colored mucus, tickle in throat, shortness of breath and wheezing?
Diagnosed acute pharyngitis, 12 days since, fever gone, sore throat gone. Still red spots roof of mouth, white tongue remain. Should I be concerned?
No: Acute pharyngitis is usually a viral infection. I wonder if your PMD put you on an antibiotic. If so, the white tongue could be a fungal infection. Red spots on the palate still could be the viral infection that persists. Do not be concerned, but if the spots persist see either your doctor or a specialist in oral medicine. ...Read more

Urgent care: With a fever and "draining" (I'm assuming your ear?), I would recommend you see your doc or go to an urgent care clinic for a proper physical examination, including an examination of the ear, surrounding structures, and your nose and throat.

I am experiencing sore throat headache throbbing sensation fever pain when swallowing. Doc said its Pharyngitis gave me Azithromycin but its worst now?
Probably viral: Pharyngitis usually is a viral infection, and viruses do not respond to antibiotics. Your doctor probably prescribed azithromycin in case it's strep, but if not, it's not surprising your symptoms are continuing and even getting worse. Check back with your doctor, but probably you'll just have to wait it out. Aspirin or ibuprofen (or related meds) may help control pain. Good luck! ...Read more
