My throat was swollen.Doc did a throat culture and it is strep throat c.Left toncel still soreaalong with left side of my tounge and left ear. Normal?

Yes: Strep infections can infect all the moist tissues in the nose and pharynx (throat). Pain and swelling are cardinal signs of inflammation. The bacterial infection can extend to the eustachian tube that connects the inner ear to the back of the throat--swelling closes the tube and causes earache. See your doc for antibiotics. Use: neilmed sinus rinse, salt water gargle and Ibuprofen 600 mg 4 x a day. ...Read more

Got a sore throat, clicking noise when I swallow, hoarseness and a lump in my jaw.. Inside my mouth r no signs of mouth cancer. I dip for a month?

See MD.: Get checked to be sure you don't have strep throat, which must be treated to prevent the risk of getting rheumatic fever. Where is the clicking noise? But when you get checked for strep, you can be checked for this and the lump at the same time. Strep and other bacteria responds rapidly to antibiotics, so the sooner you get checked, the sooner you'll get better if the cause is a bacteria. ...Read more
