Sore throat  for 7 days, no fever, no rash, headache, mouth pain. Strep throat? Hiv? Started zithromax today.

It is a very appropriate drug for some cases of lower respiratory infections. H.Flu is a very common cause of ear and sinus infections. ...Read more

HIV is Hard to get: If you got HIV and got a full body rash two to three weeks after exposure then this would be a possible explanation. But, five months? Nope not likely. It is something else.

I was taking Amoxicillin for Strep throat and 8 days in I got an itchy rash that quickly spread to my whole upper body (lower body only light rash). I'm in a third world country. What should I do?

Stop Amoxicillin: I would think it is a type III (not anaphylactic) reaction to penicillin. It is usually self limited.
I would stop the Penicillin as strept thoat is usually cured with penicillins in 7 days or less. You can take anthistamines such as bendaryl or zyrtec (cetirizine) for rash or itch. It should improve on its own in a few days. If the rash does persist, or any new symptoms, seek medical care. ...Read more

Allergy: I would want to know if you had a CULTURE or other test to prove Strep throat. Then, I would want to know WHAT MEDICINE you were put on. It's possible you're having a drug allergy to say 'amoxicillin' or whatever antibiotic you were given. There could be other phenomena going on, so I would CALL the doctor ASAP, since you don't want this to get worse. Sounds bad enough as it is. Hope you get help ...Read more

Often : Often times when a person has strep throat they develop a rash. This rash is caused by a toxin that's released by the strep bacteria. It sounds like that rash has subsided and has left behind the characteristic dry peeling skin. Don't worry this is the normal course for this type of rash and the peeling and dryness should subside completely after about 10 days or so. In the mean time keep his skin clean and moisturized. Try thick emollient creams, they usually come in a jar, or plain vaseline. Be patient; in time he will be completely back to normal. ...Read more

My 4 year old granddaughter is recovering from "fifth" disease. The rash and low grade fever have been gone for a few days. Strep throat was ruled out by 2 different doctors. Both say it's "fifth disease" however, she seems to be pale. She is eating, p

Fifths : Fifths disease is a common, relatively harmless viral infection - most often seen in kids and characterized by red cheeks followed by a lacy rash on the arms, legs and body. Some people will also have fever for a day or two. It typically resolves on its own without treatment. The only time we really worry about this virus is if it infects someone who is pregnant or someone with a chronic blood disease such as sickle cell anemia, thalessemia, or spherocytosis. The virus can stop the bone marrow from producing red blood cells for a short period of time. This does not usually affect a healthy person, but can affect someone who's red blood cells are not normal in the first place. I attached a website with more information about fifths disease. If she has a chronic blood disease, if her paleness continues, or if she is acting sick at all, give her doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more
