Yesterday evening my throat became very sore . White spots near my tonsils and it hurts to swallow . Glands swollen , pressure in ears , fever 100.2 ?

Pharyngitis: Likely not strep, but won't know until seen, tested. "white spots" are generally overcalled by the public, and often are due to relatively benign things such as cryptic exudate or normal appearance. Bottom line: you should get looked at before any other treatment. In the meantime, tylenol (acetaminophen) and/or Ibuprofen for fever/pain, and chloraseptic as needed. Use only if nonallergic. ...Read more

Because it is on the neck with pain radiating into and around your ears, this can be dangerous because your brain is not far from that area. I advise you to seek immediate medical attention. ...Read more

Woke up yesterday with very painful swollen gland in right neck side. Sore throat. Painful when swallowing. No fever really - highest 37.5'c.

Dr. can check throat: New 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 or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep). A couple days of throat lozenges or Tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease pain. ...Read more

Rotten wisdom teeth, food gets stuck inside. Can that cause swollen neck glands, a low grade fever and feel sick all the time?On cipro (ciprofloxacin). Just worried.

Yes: Yes, rotten wisdom teeth can cause all of the symptoms you describe. The solution is to have these infected wisdom teeth removed.

Sialadenitis: The history is indeed suspicious for parotid infection (parotitis) and/or stone in the parotid duct, but it is not clear exactly what is going on. Other possibilities include neck abscess or lymphadenitis. All of these are pretty high acuity problems that warrant prescription medication treatment. I would consider ENT evaluation, or see your primary. If it's bad, er evaluation is appropriate. ...Read more
