I am 16 week pregnant, i have canker sore in my throat, is it safe orajel for my baby?

Yes: No problem with this. Do not overdo it because you may make it worse. Warm salt water rinses (1 tsp/8oz ) 4-5 times a day really help. Dry the area with a Q-tip first then apply oragel or baby oragel with a Q-tip. Good Luck. Good to consider the effects on your baby. ...Read more

Sore in throat: Canker sores are rarely found in the back of the throat. That being said, If it is a canker sore, it will resolve itself in 7-10 days. You should consult a dentist, oral surgeon or ENT specialist to confirm exactly what type of sore you have in your throat. If it has lasted for more than 10 days, or if it has re-occured, have it checked ASAP. ...Read more

I have had a sore area in my throat on the right side only and have not been sick. What could cause this? No lump can be felt.

Right throat sore: I would have your doctor or a throat specialist (ENT) have a look at the are your are concerned about. To determine what is causing your sore throat, and how to resolve it, additional information is needed. Do you smoke? Have you ever smoked? What do you do for work? Do you have reflux or heartburn? Is it difficult or does it hurt when you swallow? How are your tonsils? Hoarseness? ...Read more

I have a sore throat, my lower back hurts and frequent urinary . I go more than five times a night . I had a myomectemy last year December?

Urinary infection: You definitely need to be seen by a doctor. With the urinary frequency and back pain, I'm certain that you have a urinary infection. The question is, how much of the urinary tract is involved - as these infections can go upwards from the bladder into the body. That's why it needs evaluation. Your sore throat could relate to that or something else (circumstances of how you got the UTI). ...Read more

I started Paxil (paroxetine) 3 days ago & now i have a sore throat my dad has a cold so im probably just getting it i was worried cuz i read it could be a s/e?

Probably a cold: Most likely, this is a cold virus causing a sore throat. That is just by the odds. Even though it might be listed as a side effect of Paxil, (paroxetine) it is still more likely to be a cold. See your doctor if it goes for more than a few days or if acutely worsens. ...Read more

I have a sore throat my tonsils has to big things next to them on top of that i been throwing up blood?

Hemoptysis: Hemoptysis is fancy medical term for throwing up blood which is never a good thing and needs to be evaluated. Most sore throats are due to viruses and won't respond to antibiotics. Tonsil size doesn't necessarily determine need for antibiotics (but we do use Centor Score http://goo.gl/1TnpFn to help decide). but it's the hemoptysis that makes me recommend seeing your doc ASAP. ...Read more
