Sore Throat Cough Rash
Hi fevr, sore throat,cough,8 itchy rash w heads.Spread 2 n hand 4 on ankles.Week later all crusted but last 1 itchypain 3mm fluid filled bubble! pox?
Unlikely chickenpox: A rash with fluid filled blisters is suggestive of chickenpox, but the distribution is atypical. Chickenpox usually starts with lesions on the abdomen and then spreads up and out and includes the entire body. Lesions that are limited to hands and ankles along with a sore mouth or throat are more consistent with a Coxsackie virus, often called hand foot mouth virus. An exam would confirm. ...Read more
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
I started with a sore throat and voice loss now I have a chesty cough and rashes on my chest and back what could it be?
Viral illness: Most likely a viral throat and larynx infection that is causing cough either by vocal cord irritation or progressing to trachea or lungs. Hydrate, use humidifier, rest voice, use honey and dextromethorphin to suppress cough if it is nonproductive. Laryngitis is rarely bacterial. Rash is also probably a viral exanthem. ...Read more
Had sore throat for 12 days, went away but now a cough and today a small sunburn-like rash has appeared on inside of right wrist. Are these connected?
Possibly: The rash could be scarlet fever, a rash associated with untreated strep throat. This untreated infection could lead to the symptoms you describe. Some viral illnesses can do the same. The ONLY way to know is to test with a strep test. If it is positive, then you need antibiotics to prevent further problems like effects on your heart. If negative, then the new symptoms should run their course. ...Read more
Hello. Im a healthcare worker. Istarted with sinus congestion then a fever. Two day later a cough sore throat. Now productive with a rash.
Sinusitis: Greetings. What you are describing HC sounds like Sinusitis. The rash may be a dermatological manifestation. Otherwise, your descriptions are textbook. See your doctor for confirmation and treatment. Saline nasal wash via NeilMed and then Nasacort (triamcinolone) 2 Sprays each nostril every night can also help. I also recommend Motrin with food. 3-4 tabs 3x/day should help reduce inflammation and pain. Good Luck ...Read more

If sore throat was HIV sign would it ever be by itself or always be accompanied by a fever&rash? Also have slight cough/no thrush/no fever/no rash. ?
HIV: A sore throat by itself is not a a sign of hiv. If you are concerned you were exposed to HIV you should get tested. Testing can be done anonymously at many state health departments so if you are worried better to be tested and find out. The signs of HIV may not always be easy for you to tell without testing for the virus. ...Read more

Have strep, no sore throat, rash, fatigue, cough, chest pain, had a bloody nose, 3rd round of antibiotics terrible headache, not allergic reaction
May not be strep.: If you never had a sore throat, you are a "carrier" This means that you "carry" carry strep without being infected. You will test positive for strep even if you are well. This carrier state can be treated specifically. If you have done 3 rounds of antibiotics, and remain ill, you likely have a virus. Viruses do not respond to antibiotics - and run their course. Re- check New or worsening symptoms ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Doctor can check: New throat pain can be from a 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 strep throat). Strep throat can occur with a rash, but some viruses also cause rashes. ...Read more
