Can allergies cause sore throat and swollen nodes? When pollen is high out, my throat hursts, sneezes and swollen nodes. Subsides with benadryl (diphenhydramine).

Sounds like: An allergic response usually does not involved lymph node enlargement but one can see how this can happen from the immune stimulation related to high pollen exposure. If the problem is relieved by Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) then what walks, sounds, and looks a duck = a duck. Yes you do have allergy and the sore throat is from either mouth-breathing or post-nasal drips ...Read more

In my region, pollen levels are the highest in the last 50 years. I have a sore throat, running nose and am very tired, no fever. Allergy or cold?

Probably cold: Allergies can sometimes cause mild irritation of the throat, but it shouldn't be downright painful. They are also usually accompanied by sneezing and itching of the eyes and nose. With sore throat and fatigue, i would suspect a cold, which may not present with fever. Get plenty of sleep, drink plenty of fluids. See your doctor if you have any questions or if your don't feel better in a few days. ...Read more

You : You should also take an allergy medication like Claritin (loratadine) or alavert. If you are still having these symptoms, you should see your doctor. At this point you could be dealing with a pharyngitis (throat infection), bronchitis (infection of upper airway) or even sinusitis (infection of the sinuses). All the best. ...Read more

While you are pregnat is it easier for you to have more sore throat  more frequently i'am in my first trimester and I have been having a lot of sore throats n hoarseness in my voice for weeks now is this something serious

Infections : Infections of this type are not more common in pregnancy. It may be that you had been exposed to someone with an infection recently. Check with your OB if you do not improve over the next week or two. Sometimes it takes a while (several weeks) for hoarseness to improve after a viral infection. I hope you don't smoke since that can slow healing and be bad for the baby. ...Read more
