Had a sore throat for 2 weeks. An urgent care said it was prob viral and gave me nothing. Hurts to swallow or stick out my tongue. Should I go back?

Doctor can re-check: Throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat illness is bothersome (as in this case), recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat or a tonsillar abscess). ...Read more

Herpangina: Painful viral oral infections are very uncomfortable. They do ultimately self resolve. You may like to try aspirin gargles as an additional pain relief (dissolve an aspirin tablet in water and then gargle it). Diflam spray is another topical pain relief remedy.

Why is the roof of my mouth yellow? Not like thrush, but tinted yellow. I also have a very sore red throat with mucus. Does this just sound viral?

Slight jaundice: You may be suffering from epstein-barr virus or 'mono' which can make you slightly yellow, with throat symptoms as you describe. Everyone's a little different, so the best thing to do is see a doctor for proper evaluation. Jaundice or that yellow color, can be seen inside the mouth, plus also the whites of the eyes if you pull the skin to the side (carefully). Hope you feel better soon! ...Read more

Viral sore throat - I feel it coming & no il be wrecked 4 days or wks. 31yrs old, tonsils removed 6 yrs. Can I get rid of this virus or prevent at all?

Moderate it: Once you have the early symptoms you will hve to suffer what ever course your particular virus dictates. You should stay warm, hydrate yourself and many have relief by taking an antihistamine such as chlorpheneramine (side effect = sleepiness). Which can attenuate the course. Isolate yourself as best as you can so as not to spread this to others. ...Read more

Uvula not epiglottis: You may see your uvula but it is difficult to see epiglottis. You have pain with swallowing. Feels like something in your throat. I would recommend drinking lots of fluids.

No transmission from kissing regardless of the health of the mouth of the person being kissed.

Sore throat: What you describe is rather common and can be due to many different conditions. One is herpangina caused by a coxsackie virus, but without being able to see the back of your tongue and throat would only be guessing.

Been on 2rounds of zpack. Looked at throat 2day has red streaks in the back, no more white spots. Sore. No fever. Could it be viral?

Viral?: Viral infections are generally self-limited, lasting an average of 3 to 5 days before resolving on their own. Given that you’re on the second round of Z pack, you have been sick presumably for at least five days and probably longer, reducing the chance that this is a simple viral infection. You might need a different choice of antibiotic. ...Read more
