Received unprotected oral sex 2 weeks ago have soar throat and headache. Is a flu or I might have caught somthing?

The Flu Season

Flu
I do not see how these two events are connected. If you received oral sex then that would be your penis was involved, not your throat. Correct? or am I missing the point and you were the one that gave the oral sex?

Have a bad soar throat and a bad cough. Been hurting since last Friday. Hurts when I swallowm First it was a little scratch. Just a cold, flu, what?

Hard to know

Throat_tightness
You could have a strep pharyngitis, and can get a throat culture or strep test at an Urgent Care Center since it's Saturday. You may also have a simple cold -- needing plenty of rest and fluids. Salt-water gargles may help the throat pain, but since it's persistent it's best to get it checked out today.

Ive been using avamys in high doses and taking allegra 120mg daily for months but still I get sore throats at least once a month. Some end in the flu.

Well

Sores
First are you using your avamyst correctly by aiming the nozzle outwards inside the nasal cavity? If not, the medication may not have reached the right area to work. Another possibility is that the nasal symptoms have nothing to do with your sore throat.

Soar throat and trouble speaking ,it hurts a lot and coffed up little pieces of blood. Is it normal for a flu? People at work have the flu.

Possible

Severe coughing can rupture small blood vessels in your tracheobronchial tree. However, if your hemoptysis (coughing up blood) should persist, you need to see a doctor to r/o tumor and TB.

I was diagnosed with the flu. Yet the test came back negative. I have a fever of over 100, aches, chills,bloody mucus, soar throat. Is this the flu?

Influenza

This illness is caused by a virus and it can be simulated by other viruses like parainfluenza, adenovirus, enteroviruses, and so on. Do not know what test was done and whether it has a high false negative frequency, but it does sound like you have a flu-like illness for which antibiotics are unnecessary.

See a doctor

Although you may be convinced that you have influenza this may not be accurate. If you prefer not to see a doctor then remain hydrated, get bed rest, take an anti-inflammatory and hope you get better soon . Good luck

My wife has flu like symptoms wit h a rash on her arms and inner thighs! She started off with throwing up and nausea bone ach soar throat headache,?

Rash

Influenza
The rash may be an allergy to medicine or some other substance if it is more bilateral (both sides) If it is only in a certain area (dermatome, or nerve distribution), and it was preceded by the flu-like symptoms, it may be post herpetic neuralgia (shingles). I would see your doctor.

Dr. Rada Ivanov answered:

why do i have flue like symptoms and a soar throat and neck only at night?

Dryness or allergies

Neck-throat
You may be allergic to something in your home, or have a very dry environment. Try a humidifier, eliminate allergens and if that does not help, see a doctor. Infectious diseases with periodic fevers are a very remote possibility also, if you have travelled a lot or have had unusual exposures.

I have sore throat and real sore stiff neck and headache. Is this just some kind of flu?

Cannot diagnose

Neck-throat
Sounds like some type of probably viral illness, but without seeing you and examining you it is impossible to say more. If you feel poorly or this continues, see your PCP
