Left side neck swollen gland my head hurts by my ear to my tempo only when I turn and look right my doctor gave me antibiatics is this a infection?

Swollen gland: Likely what you are describing is something called lymphadenopathy, which is swelling and inflammation of lymph nodes. This can lead to pain and can be aggravated by movement, depending on the location of the swollen lymph node. Generally speaking, most lymphadenopathy is caused by infectious processes. This could be viral or bacterial. If it is bacterial, the antibiotics can help. Try advil (ibuprofen) too. ...Read more

White spots on side of throat, glands in neck swollen and sore, throat not really sore. If I make myself cough I can tell there is some mucus.?

Dr. Can check throat: Throat discomfort 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 or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain. ...Read more

Treated for tonsillitis but whole throat/tonsils swollen & red. Glands in neck swollen too after 20 days. Should it get worse to get better?

Treated for tonsillitis but whole throat/tonsils swollen & red. Glands in neck swollen too after 20 days. Should it get worse to get better?

Culture: If the tonsils are red and swollen for 20 days and an antibiotic has been unsuccessful I would strongly recommend a culture of the throat to rule out a viral infection or a specific bacterial infection. Finally, infectious mono needs to be ruled out. No it should not get worse before it gets better. You need a specific diagnosis. See an ENT doctor. ...Read more

Red itchy skin & ears & swollen glands in neck since moving to new place. Gets worse after I've been in laundry room. Using same detergents. Help!

Allergic reaction: We can develop allergies even if we haven't changed the type of products we use. I would start by changing my laundry detergent to a hypoallergenic one. If that doesn't work, you can use a hypoallergenic soap like neutrogena. If you are no better after these changes, you need to see a dermatologist or allergist. ...Read more

The treatment with amoxacillin therefore might not be indicated. A general rule that most ENT physicians follow is this: if symptoms are getting worse after 5 days or not better after 10 days, we recommend empirically an antibiotic. ...Read more

Bit by a tick on back of head a week ago, no rash, sore neck, swollen lymph nodes, flu like symptoms, soreness only getting worse. Should I go to er?

Primary Dr can check: On the west coast, the western black-legged tick can bite humans, and can cause lyme disease, after feeding for 24-48 hours. A lab can test such a tick for lyme disease bacteria. The doctor may treat with antibiotics if the lab finds lyme bacteria, if the bite site has a bull's-eye rash, or if there are other worries... Such as a lot of irritation and maybe a skin infection at the bite site. ...Read more
