HPV: Unlike to be developing symptoms of hpv this soon, but assuming you were performing oral sex on a man, gonorrhea is certainly possible to be producing symptoms rapidly. You also need to be checked for syphilis and HIV as well as chlamydia. See a doctor and have this evaluated. Good luck and best wishes for a good outcome. ...Read more

Doctor can evaluate: 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 or irritants. Usually, a person sees a doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to see about antibiotics). Herpes recurs on the lips or face, rather than the uvula or inside the mouth. ...Read more

I have a mild, non-worsening sore throat for two weeks after one-time vaginal oral sex on HPV positive woman with no other STD. Can HPV cause this?

Here are some. ..: Generally speaking, HPV-related lesions tend to be asymptomatic and appears with a longer incubation than 2 wks. Therefore, it is reasonable to just watch and see if the current sore throat may slowly fade away like that resulting from viral upper respiratory infection. If not, seek professional evaluation and counseling in one week. Of course, see doc soon if the symptoms worsen. ...Read more

Have been given a good report by an "ent"& an internist. I have thyroid disease (tk levo) & HPV (tk aldara). Why do I still have a chronic sore throat?

Have been given a good report by an "ent"& an internist. I have thyroid disease (tk levo) & HPV (tk aldara). Why do I still have a chronic sore throat?

Combination of thing: A few thoughts- although you may not have had anything obvious on ENT exam you may still have subclinical gerd, post nasal drip, allergy or even irritant. I would review your hx to see if there is anything we are missing - try trials of appropriate meds including standard anti gerd, anti drip and anti allergy. At the end of the day this might be a combo of things. ...Read more

Will strep test show positive at first sign of sore throat? Symptoms started less than 24 hrs ago, got tested, nurse said test negative. I often get strep.

Will strep test show positive at first sign of sore throat? Symptoms started less than 24 hrs ago, got tested, nurse said test negative. I often get strep.

The rapid strep test: Can be falsely negative 30% of the time, meaning you have the disease but the rapid test failed to pick it up. That is why many docs will send a culture. But even so, if you know you were exposed to another person who tested positive for strep pharyngitis, the guidelines say to treat regardless of what the rapid test shows. In that case many elect not to send a culture because it doesn't affect Tx ...Read more

Tested positive with strep throat for 3 time in last two months. I have sore throat symptoms but nothing else. Am I a carrier? Am I contagious everyday?

Hard to say: We generally reserve the "chronic carrier" label for those who do not get sick with it, although anyone sick with it carries it for a while. You need to investigate whether you are being reinfected by a third party, your old tooth brush, your dog, etc. Some have resistant strep and need 2 stage therapy. Work the specifics out with your doc. ...Read more

Spread of infection: What you described suggests viral infection and virus may affect different tissues at different times in the course of an infection. For example measles causes sore throat before there is skin rash.

Other changes are only seen using special magnification equipment. Still other hpv changes can only be seen on a cellular level using a microscope.

The common cold medicines are used to treat nasal stuffiness and congestion and runny nose.
