Woke up with sore throat. Have runny clogged nose too. Could this be strep. Or just a sore throat?
Viral infection: Almost all upper respiratory tract infections start with a virus. The fact that you have nasal congestion associated with the sore throat is typical of a viral etiology. In general, if symptoms get worse after 5 days or not improved after 10 days a throat culture and appropriate antibiotic should be considered. ...Read more
Sore : Sore throat is a fairly common symptom associated with many illnesses. Most of the time it resolves on its own without any other issues. Occasionally it can be due to something more serious that needs treatment. Reasons to seek care are: - any fever - since it could be strep and you can't tell without an exam/testing - if it lasts longer than 3 or 4 days - any difficulty opening your mouth - unable to swallow - severe pain - bleeding in the throat - redness or swelling on the outside of the neck - any difficulty breathing or noisy breathing in the meantime, taking Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen for pain, drinking plenty of fluids such as hot tea/broth or cold liquids and a spoonful of honey can help. ...Read more
Maybe strep,flu,etc.: Nose and throat symptoms can be from cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc... It can be difficult to tell what the cause is. If symptoms only last 1-2 days, it was likely allergies, irritation, or a mild cold. Doctors have rapid 5-minute tests for strep, so a primary care doctor can diagnose strep and start antibiotics "right away", which means within the first 3 days of strep symptoms. ...Read more
I get mild headaches, have a very runny nose with thick mucus, sore throat, very occasional cough, congested. What's wrong?
Painful sore throat, irritated ears, lump on neck, stiff neck, and fatigue. This is not a normal sore throat. No fever or cold like symptoms?
Sick for week now pretty much the same feverish sinus pressure pain feels like face is pounding VERY stuffy nose and cough very lethargic sore throat?
Viruses stink: Most sinus infections in children and adults are viral pathogens. It's not uncommon for symptoms to last 4-5+ weeks. I'd talk to your doctor about ways to decrease some of the symptoms. Can be as easy as DayQuil or if appropriate, I will prescribe a cough syrup (eg Tussionex) with an intranasal steroid (eg, Nasonex) and/or Chloraseptic Max Cough drops (they have 2 numbing agents in them). G'luck! ...Read more
Sore throat for a few days, now constantly coughing up phlegm large amounts. throats hurts somewhat when yawning. what's wrong?? very nervous
Visited a sick friend, now have same symptoms: very sore swollen red throat, a lot of pain swallowing, coughing, muscle pain, congestion. Strep? Cold?
Yes! Probably cold: Both can be the cause; however the presence of a cough makes strep much less likely. This is an unusual time for flu. These sound like viral symptoms, so managing them symptomatically makes sense. Fluids, tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen if desired as long as no contraindications, and rest. If your symptoms change or worsen, may need to be seen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
