Have had a cough for 2 weeks and woke with a sore throat this morning (has mostly subsideded since then). How I can I prevent this from getting worse?

I sympathise...: I had that type of cough after christmas 2012. My back even ached from all the coughing. I took mucinex-dm mainly for the dextromethorphan hydrobromide, which is a cough suppressant. It is inexpensive and worked wonders for me! Take the maximum recommended dose until your cough tones down. ...Read more

Dr. can check throat: 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). A couple days of throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain. ...Read more

I tested negative for gonorrhea and I'm having a sore throat every morning and eye pain in both. Is it possible it can be in my throat & eyes?

I tested negative for gonorrhea and I'm having a sore throat every morning and eye pain in both. Is it possible it can be in my throat & eyes?

Gonorrhea can live..: Gonorrhea can live anywhere it contacts. If partner is or was positive for infection when you had relations & if exposure to semen was mouth or eye then, it's possible to have been infected in those areas. I'm skeptical with the symptoms you pose & time since exposure should be considered. Still, gonococcal pharyngitis happens. Not hard to verify. More questions?

What do I do for sore throat while pregnant? My husband just got over having a cold/flu and I woke up with a sore throat this morning.

A few things: You'd want to make sure you don't have strep throat, especially if you're having fevers and feel lousy. That's a fairly simple test that your doctor can do in the office, and if positive you'd need antibiotics.

Possile: Possibly. Either directly or indirectly. Strep throat left untreated can lead to heart problems and rhythm disturbances. Indirectly anything that stresses the heart due to infection or inflammation may result in an outpouring of adrenalin, the effect of which can be "tachycardia" or fast beating heart. ...Read more
