Can you get sore glands from chronic post nasal drip?

Can you get sore glands from chronic post nasal drip?

No, not usually.: Glands will swell for weeks after an upper respiratory infection, which causes drainage (briefly), but you said "chronic". I noticed gastritis and Prilosec on your profile. Are you sure post nasal drip isn't from GERD? Happens a lot. But look for other reasons for cervical gland pain or swelling. See your primary care, make sure your glands aren't a sign of something serious. ...Read more

Check with you Dr.: First check with you physician to be sure there are no medical complications. You may also have some dental concerns (grinding your teeth, sleep disturbances, etc.) but rule medical complications out first. If you physician does not find an answer, you may look into finding a doctor that deals with TMJ issues to see if this might be a cause. Treat the cause, not the effects. ...Read more

Nose swab tested positive for a gram negative bacilli and cocci colony. This was causing sore outbreaks on face.Took bactroban 2x daily for 10 days. Will bactroban eliminate both? Are these types of nasal colonies recurring? Or should I be fine now?

Nose swab tested positive for a gram negative bacilli and cocci colony.  This was causing sore outbreaks on face.Took bactroban 2x daily for 10 days. Will bactroban eliminate both? Are these types of nasal colonies recurring? Or should I be fine now?

Probably unrelated: Those kinds of bacteria are not likely cause of "sore outbreaks on face". If this is due to any bacteria at all, I would be more suspicious of strep or staph. Bactroban (mupirocin) may help. However, you should also speak with your doctor about the possibility of herpes, which is an entirely different problem. ...Read more

Probable virus: Nasal congestion and sore throat together is most likely viral or allergic. Allergies tend to be seasonal at same time each year with sneezing, itchy eyes and nose. A strep or mono infection is usually sore throat alone and no nasal congestion. Caused by transfer of bug from hands to mouth. WASH HANDS a lot ! ...Read more

My right nostril is sore inside and is creating crust. Not sure what's going on in there but using bactroban nasal ointment in it. Will it suffice?

Only time will tell: Since have no idea what is causing the inflammation and crusting there is no way in which to predict outcome. Bactroban (mupirocin) may change the staphylococcus colonizing your nares, but no way to know whether it will suffice to heal the lesion in your nose. ...Read more
