Cough (Definition)

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

Diagnosed with strep throat in May and again in August and still my throat burns, it's red, lymph nodes swollen along with a fever, back of neck pain?

See ENT: It is unusual to get recurrent strep throat unless you have repeatedly been exposed to a carrier. I suspect that your throat symptoms may be due from something else such as acid reflux. Best to consult an ENT. ...Read more

Viral?: If it is a primary herpetic stomatitis or flu, which can be very uncomfortable, Amoxicillin will be of no use (unless to treat a secondary bacterial infection). If viral, treat symptoms, it will abate, but stay hydrated! If it is indeed bacterial (bacterial infections tend to have higher fevers) then perhaps a culture and sensitivity test for a specific antibiotic would be wise. Good luck! ...Read more

No fever, nasal congestin subsiding, thick green phlegm coighing up, pain in back of neck by glands, no fever, rattle cough?

Congestion: Green phlegm does not always mean an acute bacterial infection, i.e. the type in which you need antibiotics. Often smoldering viral infections end in this way. However, if it persists, recurs after symptoms are almost gone, or you begin developing a fever then definitely have it checked. In the meantime, treat the symptoms. ...Read more

Swollen part on back of left neck tender to touch headache and fever of 99.5 small cough glob in back of throat what's this BP is little high too?

URI: The tender swelling sounds like a swollen lymph node. The other symptoms sound like a viral illness. How long have you had your symptoms? If only a few days then it is probably viral and I would treat it symptomatically with Acetaminophen or ibuprofen. I expect you will feel better over the next week. ...Read more

On and off fever (hot flashes), cough which passed (now only occasional), now sore throat, yesterday neck pain, today back pain. Is this serious?

Beginnings of virus: You may have the beginnings of an infection (possibly viral). The sore throat and stiff neck are things I always recommend be evaluated by physicians since you never know what exactly is up and what testing you may need. Take your temperature with a thermometer to document how much (if any) of a fever you have, start drinking plenty of fluids. Make sure your nutritional status is good ; get seen. ...Read more

Base of head/neck pain fever chills sore throat feels like something heavy is in my head?

Doctor can examine: New throat pain can be from 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 a doctor if the sore throat illness is bothersome (as in this case), coming with other symptoms (head and neck pain in this case) recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). ...Read more

Chesty cough, blocked noise, hurts where my ribs r when I cough and my back. Aches and pains, my neck. Think my gland r swollen, but throat not sore. Flu?

Probably viral: Sounds like upper respiratory infection or flu caused by virus. Coughing hard can elicit soreness in ribs. Sometimes pleuritis, inflammation of lining of lungs can mimic rib pain. If symptoms get worse and difficulty with high fever and change in severity of symptoms, should contact your physician. Sometimes superimposed bacterial infection can occur. Smoking will worsen cough. ...Read more

2 months since my cold resolved, but I still keep producing faint yellow clear phlegm (no fever/cough)can feel it at the back of my throat constantly.

Coincidence?: Perhaps you did have a cold. It is also possible, especially this time of year to suffer from allergies, and while coincidental to one another it may explain the chronic post nasal drip and symptom you describe. Try a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and see if this reduces the problem (a long used antihistamine). ...Read more

The bacterial kind such as strep is best treated with antibiotics. A healthcare provider could quickly assist you in deciding how to treat ...Read more
