Sudden ear pain, loud ringing, intensified in hours, fluid movmnt when pops causing icrutiating pain, sore neck, lymph nodes, mucus, becoming intolerable?

I have oral temp of 99.6. I have sinus pressure, the mucus coming out nose is less but the sinus pressure is not. My ears have minor pain, neck lymph nodes tender. 15th day today. Is it just a cold?

Sinus infection: A temp of 99.6 is not impressive but sinus pressure that lasts for over 2 weeks usually means a sinus infection. Ear pain and tender lymph nodes also add up to an infection. See your doctor for possible antibiotics. It was worth waiting a few days to see if it would clear by itself but now you need an evaluation. ...Read more

I have a fever, white patches on throat. Went to urgent care, told its an ear infection& tonsillitis. Now, front neck pain- swollen lymph nodes?

What medication: If your immune system is working well, your lymph nodes will often get enlarged and can be painful as it filters out the badness. You did not state if they determined what specific infection it was (if they determined the cause) and if you are on antibiotics. There is a chance the infection can get walled off somewhere near the tonsils and you get an abcess. Meds will help, but ENT may be needed. ...Read more

Is there ANY safe antibiotics nursing moms can take to cure Mycoplasma? Have bad throat pain & neck lymph node I want to cure & get rid of this! Help

Is there ANY safe antibiotics nursing moms can take to cure Mycoplasma? Have bad throat pain & neck lymph node I want to cure & get rid of this! Help

Doubt mycoplasma: Mycoplasma pneumoniae causes respiratory infections, but it's not a common cause of sore throat or inflamed nodes in the neck. This sounds more like a garden variety viral infection, and no antibiotic will help. Or maybe strep throat? Check with your doctor: if s/he believes M pneumoniae or strep is likely, then azithromycin would be effective and is safe for nursing babies. ...Read more
