Cat scratches, breathing problems, sinus pain, now really sore throat, what is the cause?

Many possibilities: The red herring here is your hx of cat scratches which raises the question of toxoplasmosis. But your other symptoms don't suggest that. I think it's unrelated. I suspect you have a viral pharyngitis but you need a throat culture to rule out strep, or, if appropriate, a gram negative diplococcus (neisserian species). ...Read more

Hello it normal to have jaw ear head and sinus pain with a cold sore?

No: I would suspect separate causes. Pain/stress with jaw/sinus problem can be a trigger for viral activation and appearance of cold sore, but the jaw/sinus problems need to be evaluated to determine cause. ...Read more

What might bring about my sore throat/lower sinus pain?

How long has it been: If your symptoms are only a few days old then i would suspect a viral infection. If it has been weeks or months then i would suspect allergies. If you have fever and green or yellow mucus and it has been going on for more than 3 or 4 days then i would suspect a bacterial infection that would require an antibiotic. ...Read more

Sinus infection?: If short courses of Afrin/Sudafed have helped, perhaps a visit to your doctor or urgent care can confirm a sinus or ear infection. This way they can check your vital signs and complete head, lung exam to ensure you get the best treatment. Good luck ...Read more
