I have had a fever and sore throat, headache and my ears have been hurting for about 3 days now. Why is this?
Infection likely: This could be a viral cold, a bacterial infection such as strep throat and/or ear infection, mono, or a flu. Continue Ibuprofen and/or acetaminophen, stay hydrated (make sure you are making enough urine and that it's clear), and if not getting better you should get evaluated. ...Read more
I have been having a sore throat for a month, and had a tonsilectomy back in october, could possibly have strep again?
I have had a cold for 3 weeks.Was started on a z-pack 3 days ago. For a few days, have been having sharp pain on right ribcage when I cough or breathe?
Aspirin, H2O2 Humidi: For upper respiratory infections like cold and flu (but also serious infections like pneumonia) I recommend using a humidifier, filled with one bottle of hydrogen peroxide, and two bottles of water. That gives you a 1% solution of aerosolized peroxide, which kills the pathogens on contact, and breaks down into carbon dioxide and water. Your chest pain is caused by pleurisy--treatment is aspirin. ...Read more
I had to get an Mri and had anesthesia after I was done I had a metallic taste for a few days. I also developed a cough. Four days dry cough.
I had cough for 4 weeks now I have been prescribed antibiotics for a week but i still have the tingly cough .At first i had a mucus clear cough?
Possibility.....: Typically, a bacterial bronchitis, treated with antibiotics, resolves within about 7-10 days. Since your cough is lasting longer than that, you may have bronchospasm that can occur following a bout of acute bronchitis. The treatment usually consists of a bronchodilator inhaler and perhaps a steroid inhaler. See your doctor again for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
I have had a sore throat for three days and I just had acid reflux right now which burnt the sore throat even more?What should i take to stopsorethroa
2 weeks ago I was given a Zpack to treat bronchitis, now I have had a sore throat for three days along with big bumps on the back of my tongue,normal?
Possibly related: One of the causes of bumps on the tongue and sore throat would be oral thrush or a yeast/fungal infection. This is more likely after antibiotic use when the bacterial flora in the mouth/body is altered. It might also represent an unusual form of drug allergy, or just be normal. I would probably ask my doctor to have a look at them. Good luck! ...Read more

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). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help lessen pain. ...Read more
Have had a sore throat for three days, not too bad, but my cough drops say I should see a doctor if it lasts longer than two days. Is that true?
It's true.: If it says so on the label it must be true! As a doctor I can't say that makes much sense - most sore throats are viral and do last more than three days. If it is progressively worsening or is associated with serious side effects see your doc. Otherwise take the lozenges ...Read more

I have had a major stomach ache for three days now. I have barley been hungry. I've also had a sore throat that seems to have flem blocking up. It feels as if my throat is closing.
Severe sore throat on the left side for 7 days. No improvement been on penicillin for almost three full days.
Virus: Unfortunately, most sore throats are caused by viral infections rather than bacterial infections such as Strep throat. Viral infections do not respond to penicillin. Hot showers, hot tea, gargling, and throat lozenges all help reduce the pain. If it persists, you will need to see your doctor for re-evaluation. Best wishes! ...Read more
