Viral URI?: How was strep throat confirmed? Over 90% of throat infections are viral, which do not respond to antibiotics. Strep is less common at your age and with presence of a cough. Even with confirmed strep it is possible to have other symptoms linger. A Z-pack is also not the antibiotic of choice, and should only be used in patients with penicillin allergy. Try an OTC cough medicine and decongestant, ...Read more
I have had sinus pain and pressure for 3-4 weeks, taken a round of doxycycline and still pain. No cold symptoms or mucous in my nose. Now what?
Stronger antibiotic: Doxycycline may not be the best antibiotic for you and it may require one like avellox or Levaquin (levofloxacin) to clear the infection. Warm applications, steam inhalations and nasal irrigations may promote nasal drainage to relieve the pressure. A ct scan of the paranasal sinuses is often done in stubborn cases. Discuss these suggestions with your physician or otolaryngologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sore ear: You probably have some inflammation in the nose that can be helped with a nasal steroid and ear popping. Grab you nose and blow hard. This should open those tubes to equilibrate the pressure. You will get immediate relief. If the ears are blocked the steroid will help with the pressure. Irrigate the nose with saline (1 tsp salt to one quart of water) before you place the steroid. Good luck! ...Read more

My child is currently on antibiotics for strep throat. And now, my throat hurts and there is a pain in my ear. Do I have strep?
Possibly: 46 year old with sore throat and ear pain, child with diagnosed strep. It is very possible that you have strep as well, since strep is contagious and spreads with shared utensils, glasses, toothbrushes, kisses, etc. Only way to know for sure is to see a health care provider, you need a swab of your throat for definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

Yes you can: levaquin (levofloxacin) wouldn't be a good antibiotic for strep throat infection, if you really have one, if your son does have strep throat by testing then you might have acquired the infection as well, please check with your doctor, as you might need another antibiotic Rx if it proves to be a bacterial throat infection not just viral, good luck ...Read more

Sore throat: hello ~ Omnicef (cefdinir) is a powerful drug/antibiotic to give if there is no positive strep culture because this is probably viral in origin. However now, you have successfully knocked out all the normal bacteria in the throat and have a sore throat from the resulting fungal overgrowth. You need to take an oral anti fungal for 3 -5 days. If you have a vaginal troche for vaginal thrush just suck one a day ...Read more
