Right Side Of My Throat Hurts No Flu Or Cold Symptoms Just Sore Throat Its Not Scratchy Its Painful Hurts To Swollow What Could I Take
Right side of my throat hurts no flu or cold symptoms just sore throat its not scratchy its painful hurts to swollow what could I take?
Have it checked out.: It depends on the degree of the pain- does it compromise your ability to breath, or are you gagging or choking because of the pain? If so, it merits an evaluation. Are you able to consume fluids without issue? If so, good, but if not, then an evaluation is worth it. The reaason for my advice is that a one sided pain on swollowing suggests a potentially focal process that can be evaluated. ...Read more

I am having cold symptoms (cough, fever, sore throat) with flu like muscle aches? Should I see a doctor or continue to self medicate w/ OTC products?
Depends on: How long you have been having symptoms, and whether or not the otc medications are working for you. We are still in flu season and if the symptoms have been present for less than 48hrs you may benefit from the use of a medication like tamiflu (oseltamivir). Beyond that we usually encourage supportive therapy with the otc medications. Hope you fell better soon. ...Read more

Slightly swollen right tonsil 7-8 days. No fever, white patches, or cold symptoms. Painful sore throat days 1-3, now mildly uncomfortable, but worse at night.
Sounds like tonsilli: Your description sound like it is viral. Suggest warm salt water gargles, and drink a lot of fluids, and suspect it will resolve in a few days.

4 yo son recently diagnosis with strep (+ rapid) fever and sore throat are getting better after 24 hrs of abx. No cold symptoms but now has dry cough; related?
Maybe, maybe not.: Typically strep throat alone rarely produces cough--there is almost always something else involved when a cough joins an infected throat such an a sinus infection or 2nd illness (not previously appreciated until the strep begins to improve) such as mycoplasma. The antibiotic for strep will not treat mycoplasma infection; therefore, the best advice is to call your md noting this change in symptoms. ...Read more
