My son had soreness on one side of his tongue, which followed a swollen roof of mouth. Now has off and on sore throat and swollen gland on one side .

Evaluation needed

Call_physician
It would be prudent for your son to see a physician to determine the cause of these symptoms and then appropriate treatment if necessary. It could be a viral or bacterial infection or something else. Only a personal clinical examination can accurately determine the cause of these symptoms.

Sore throat,worse with swallowing. Swollen glands on rt side. Cough,somewhat productive. Is it likely a virus and therefor no reason for dr visit?

Viral Most Common

Cough
It is most likely a viral infection, which usually clears on its own within a week. If the symptoms last longer, fever worsens, severe headache, skin rash, dark urine, thick mucous, cough productive of colored or bloody sputum, or difficulty breathing, see your doctor. To relieve the sore throat, gargle frequently with warm or cold double-strength tea or warm salt water . Wash hands often.

Dr. Joy M. Jackson answered:

What illnesses involve swollen glands, a sore throat, and white blisters in the back of your throat? There are puss pockets on both sides of throat, but only the right side of my throat hurts and is swollen.

This sounds like strep throat. However the "white blisters" on your throat are worrisome. The concern is a peritonsilar abscess, which is an emergency that needs to be addressed right away. Seek medical attention asap if you have not done so already. Best of luck.

Need to see a doctor

Sore
It looks like your daughter is getting an acute pharyngitis. She is needed to be seen by a physician to be evaluated if she has bacteria infection. In the mean time, try to control her fever with alternating paracetamol and ibuprofen so it won't be so high that she may have seizure due to high temperature. She needs to drink plenty of fluid too so she is not dehydrated.

Day 1&2 sore throat cough, nasal drainage Day 3,4,5 everything above + green phlegm Day 6 everything+ muscle pain, no fever or swollen glands at all?

See below

Epiglottitis
Still likely viral illness, however, if sore throat is persisting, get checked for strep. Green mucous simply means that the body is reacting to an infection and the white blood cells are releasing an enzyme into the mucous to kill off the infection, which also turns the mucous green. It is non-specific and most often viral. Also, 98% of all sinusitis is VIRAL.
