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

Fever, Dizziness: The high fever with nausea and dizziness are troubling signs and should be checked out immediately. It is difficult to discern from your description whether it is related to the injections you received, but your signs and symptoms may be indicative of an infection and should be evaluated by your provider. ...Read more

Fast growing neck lump with high fever in hospital for 5 days. They said it was savilary gland. Couldn't talk or eat. Sent home with same symptoms.?

Follow-up with Dr.: A person with salivary gland swelling (presumably due to infection or blockage) can follow-up with her ENT doctor or primary care doctor, to be sure that the recovery is going as expected. Sometimes additional treatment is needed. If symptoms are worrisome, and the patient cannot get in touch with her doctors, then she can go to the E.R. To be seen and treated. ...Read more

Started With Sores On My Tongue- Losing My Voice- High Fever 103.5 Tynenol Brought It To 102.6 My Neck Is Stiff Sore Weak With Bad Headache Causes? ?

Aseptic meningitis: Headaches and stiff neck could be symptoms of meningitis. There are actually many forms of meningitis- the bacterial forms being the most worrisome. Given the tongue sores and the laryngitis I suspect a virus, but I would still recommend you go to an ER or doctor now to be evaluated properly. True Tylenol (acetaminophen) will bring down a fever but it's only a BandAid and it sounds like you need real treatment. ...Read more

Possibly: It is possible that your symptoms are all related to the flu. With the flu, you can have headaches and body aches. But if your headache is severe and you have a stuff neck it would be good to get checked out. Meningitis is a serious infection, and it's not the kind of thing that you'd want to 'wait it out' with. ...Read more

Go to ER or wait out? Last zpack Sunday, BAD headache Mon/Tues (off &on now), Stiff neck since Tues pm w/ swollen glands. No high fever or light sens.

You need a diagnosis: I would go to see your PRIMARY care doc, rather than waiting a long time in an ER. The good news is you're not acutely ill (requiring an ER) but still to get the best treatment you need a diagnosis. Can you be seen today? You should be an 'add-on' to the office schedule. See if they'll do that. If fever or bad headache returns then jump to the ER. Tylenol, (acetaminophen) hot drinks (ginger tea) and rest for now. ...Read more

My 2 year old's high fever has stopped after 1.5days. Doc diagnosed stomach flu. But I'm scared of meningitis. No stiff neck, just nausea and unwell.

My 2 year old's high fever has stopped after 1.5days. Doc diagnosed stomach flu. But I'm scared of meningitis. No stiff neck, just nausea and unwell.

Be calm: A doctor has seen your child, and the fever has gone away. Both of these things are very reassuring for there being nothing serious going on. Monitor your child closely. With most types of meningitis, if child has been ill 1 1/2 days and is still alive, really unlikely child has meningitis. If condition worsens, or is not back to the terrible two's in a few days, have child re-evaluated. ...Read more

I had a high fever for 2 days, a sore throat, body & head ache the fever went down & I saw a lump on my neck and it hurts a lot when touch it help me?

Uri: Sounds like a viral syndrome with muscle aches, pains and sore throat. Fever is common with many viruses. The lump in the neck is a lymph node reacting to the viral infection. It is normal for it to be tender. Give the symptoms time to improve. Take Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for the tenderness in the lymph mode. Apply heat to the area. If the lymph node does not improve in a month, see an ent. ...Read more

Excellent concern: Do to the unfortunate over use and inappropriate use of antibiotics, bacterial resistance is prevalent. Antibiotics should not be prescribed simply for the presence of fever alone. HOWEVER, it is occassionally acceptable to Rx antibiotics with particular patterns of fever (prolonged, increasing in degree with time, association with other physical findings such as pneumonia/bronchitis, etc.) ...Read more

My 5 yearold daughter has a high fever of 102-104, cough, soar throat, vomiting, conjestion.

Youngster colds: Are really hard to evaluate and if conservative care at home (taking things to manage her fever, fluids to prevent dehydration, etc) are not working, you must go to the er to be treated. Very high temperatures can cause seizures and even injury so if you have a local doctor, ask him/her for what parameters you need to be on the look out for. ...Read more
