Sore throat with white gunk on my tonsils. Strep neg. Got a rocephin (ceftriaxone) shot and have been on ceflex for 4 days. Now have red spots on roof of mouth! Help?

Pharyngitis: Difficult to understand why you were given a Rocephin (ceftriaxone) shot and placed on Keflex when your strep test was negative. One can have a horrendous looking throat due to just a viral infection, mononucleosis being the most notorious. If pain is improving, then consider waiting a bit longer as it may all sort itself out. Otherwise do follow-up with your doctor now to be re-evaluated. Read more

HIV: The symptoms of acute HIV infection may include these, but they are so non-specific that to attribute them to HIV without definitive testing would not be appropriate.

That's not an easy?: Sorry about that, but I'm certain a doctor will need to examine you to answer that question. What other physical symptoms do you have? How long has this been an issue? Any fever? Maybe mono? Maybe oral herpes? The yellow could be superficial growth of bacteria or damaged skin or it might be jaundice. So, in a nutshell this is a situation where exam is unavoidable if you want answers. Feel better! Read more

Diagnosed acute pharyngitis, 12 days since, fever gone, sore throat gone. Still red spots roof of mouth, white tongue remain. Should I be concerned?

Diagnosed acute pharyngitis, 12 days since, fever gone, sore throat gone. Still red spots roof of mouth, white tongue remain. Should I be concerned?

No: Acute pharyngitis is usually a viral infection. I wonder if your PMD put you on an antibiotic. If so, the white tongue could be a fungal infection. Red spots on the palate still could be the viral infection that persists. Do not be concerned, but if the spots persist see either your doctor or a specialist in oral medicine. Read more

Discontinue: Stop taking the medicine. It sounds like you may have an allergy to the medicine. If you continue taking the medicine, there is a chance that you can go into anaphylactic shock. If it is bad enough, death will soon follow. I'd call your doc and let him/her know. You may have allergy to sulfa drugs. Read more

Interesting.: It could be from mouth breathing when you slept and caused a dry mouth situation. If this cleared up, then it likely was associated with that. If not, and is continuing, you will want to have it examined by your dentist as soon as you can to determine what the cause might be and how to remedy it. Read more

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from 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 a treatable infection). Throat lozenges and acetaminophen or ibuprofen can lessen pain. Read more

Many possibilities &: There is no way to know without actually examining you. It could be something benign and temporary and go away within a few days or something more serious in need of treatment. Merely giving you a list of possibilities isn't very helpful. If you want to know for sure, see your dentist. Regardless, any lesion that remains longer than 2 weeks needs to be diagnosed! Read more

Viral pharyngitis: It looks viral, but the description is not diagnosis. A rapid strep test would be necessary.
