My illness started with a bad headache and a sore throat. After two days of taking Advil, my headache went away but my sore throat stayed and red, pimple-like bumps were forming all over my hands, feet, and face. Is there a way to cure this?
Doctor can check: A sore throat can be evaluated by a primary care doctor to see what the cause might be. Sometimes it is a strep throat bacterial infection (antibiotics would be needed to treat strep). Other possibilities include viral infections such as Hand-Foot-Mouth disease or Mononucleosis (mono), a tonsillar abcess, throat ulcers, etc... The doctor has to look at the throat and rash to figure things out. ...Read more
I get a sore throat every day. Slight nasal congestion and raspy voice. Swollen glands too. Advil helps, but it comes back. Any suggestions?
See your ENT: You have some sort of chronic problem, but it is hard to know what is going on over the computer. Most likely you are dealing with allergies, chronic sinusitis, or perhaps laryngeal reflux. A thorough history, physical exam and maybe some x-rays or other tests will help sort out the problem. Sinus rinses are a helpful solution for sinus congestion and allergy complaints as well. Good luck! ...Read more

Does taking medications for fever/sore throat (acetaminophen, chloropheniramine) help reduce it's duration? What if I do not take any medication?
Is it safe to take hydrocodone-acetaminophen for a sore throat from mono? The sore throat makes it near impossible to eat and sleep.
How many days can I safely take acetaminophen (in NyQuil) for my sore throat (my doc recommended it)? Not strep. It's the only way I can sleep.
Not quite right:
Like so many things, tylenol (acetaminophen) is good except in overdose. The more reliable estimates are that tylenol (acetaminophen) overdoses (including intentional) produce serious harm rarely. Make sure you are NOT taking additional tylenol (acetaminophen) AT THE SAME TIME as nyquil (percocet, other cold meds, headache meds ALL have it among others).
Don't overdose, no limit on how many times you can take it. ...Read more

You may have strained the muscles/joints in your neck. I would recommend resting your neck, adjusting your computer screen so you do not have to look up or down, regular anti-inflammatory (discuss with your doctor what is safe for you) and hot shower and neck stretches once or twice a day. If this does not work then you should see your doctor for assessment and physical therapy.

Day 8 of a virus, started with nausea, then sore throat, now full on cold/cough, been taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) 2x a day, ok to continue until I feel better?
OK: Tylenol (acetaminophen) is for fever and pain. It is also to be taken every 4 hours, not only 2 times a day. The most common reason that it doesn't work is that people are taking too low a dose-case in point. Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil is an every 8 hour medicine. That can be taken on a 7AM, 3PM, 11PM basis. It is for pain, fever, and inflammation. That will probably help you. ...Read more
