I have had a sore throat over a week. And during the time I have been smoking marijuana. Can that prolong the healing process of my sore throat?

I have had a sore throat over a week. And during the time I have been smoking marijuana. Can that prolong the healing process of my sore throat?

Possibly: You would peobaby have a sore throat if you didn't smoke, but smoke of any kind is likely to irritate your throat. If you feel you can't stop smoking for a few days then try oral forms or a vaporizer.
Pelargonium sidoides, sold as Umcka, may help, as can gargling with a silver hydrosol like Sovereign Siiver. ...Read more

I had temperature with a sore throat few days ago. I medicated with hash (marijuana) and now after work I can't feel my legs and right arm.

I had temperature with a sore throat few days ago. I medicated with hash (marijuana) and now after work I can't feel my legs and right arm.

Call your doctor: Immediately if you still have symptoms now, or go to the urgent care if open, or ER. Your hash may have been contaminated with other products that are causing you to feel worse, and a drug screen has to be done to see what else you ingested or smoked or took that can be causing this problem. Sore throat with temperature history doesn't produce this type of neurological symptoms. ...Read more

I accidentally inhaled cigarette smoke and now I have a cough and very sore throat am I just getting sick or is it serious?

I accidentally inhaled cigarette smoke and now I have a cough and very sore throat am I just getting sick or is it serious?

You have a URI: Or 'Upper Respiratory Tract Infection' characterized by cough and sore throat. There is a whole 'spectrum' of illness - from mild to moderate to severe. I don't hear a complaint of fever or other worrisome symptoms, so probably this is just mild to moderate. You should probably call your Primary doctor - they can look in your throat and take a culture, particularly if symptoms get worse. ...Read more

Vitamin/electrolytes: A lot of things may explain your symptoms, things like general fatigue poor nutrition and sleep with induced stress can alone explain what's going on with you. However other things like thyroid dysfunction electrolyte imbalances and vitamin deficiencies can also be checked for if your symptoms persist. Your physician can easily check for all of these by a simple blood test. ...Read more

Red eyes, croupy noise on inhale, sore throat, irritable. No fever. Does this sound like something to treat at home or to see the doc about on Monday?

Red eyes, croupy noise on inhale, sore throat, irritable. No fever. Does this sound like something to treat at home or to see the doc about on Monday?

Depends: If you were talking about an adult I would say that it sounds viral and just treat it at home and it should resolve in a week. If not see a doctor. However in a 3 year old there are a few other things to consider. If the child is not eating normally or not playing normally then they should probably be seen by a doctor. Any fever or trouble breathing should also prompt a doctor visit right away ...Read more

Can you use a Vicks vapo inhaler in the mouth for lung decongestant as well as a sore throat reliever?

Qualify first: Unless you are sensitive to the product, Vicks vaporub itself does not have much of causing any side effect except if placed in areas that are sensitive to the product like the eyes. Some people claim that by swallowing it, it soothes the areas closest to the esophagus and some do it. Some put it inside the nose to use as decongestant. There is no scientific study to quote but I have tried it. ...Read more

Cough: Thymus? No. You mean Thyroid? Big difference. Also no. You have not provided any information about yourself such as medical history. Why were you given prednisone and inhaler for "sore throat"? Did you have asthma, bronchitis or pneumonia? was your throat cultured for proper antibiotic coverage?

Need evaluation: The description is entirely consistent with asthma exacerbation, despite poor response to (albuterol?) the previous night.
